Dating with cold sores
My friend said I was too much like a sister, and he couldn't continue. I worried about how that incident would affect our friendship.
Little did I know my worries would extend far beyond that concern.
cold sores are caused by a type of the herpes virus, but, it is rarely the same virus strand that causes genital herpes.
Cold sores are typically caused by Herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV1).
Plentyoffish dating forums are a place to meet singles and get dating advice or share dating experiences etc.
It is possible to transfer the different viruses to other areas of the body.HSV1 (or cold sores) can be transferred to the genitals through oral sex.In the same way, HSV2 (or genital herpes) can be transferred to the mouth. It is estimated that 80% percent of the American population have been exposed to the Herpes simplex virus (which is the virus that causes cold sores).I use topical cream as well as take valtrex and it is usually all under control and fully healed within a week, two weeks if I didn't catch it in time.My question is, is this something I need to disclose early on in dating, such as you would a STD or something like that?
