Why, are people not informed that there are various "strains" of HERPES, some WORSE than others. People are left under a false impression that if they have HERPES, and have SEX with someone who also has the same type "strain" as they do ( 1 or 2 ), neither will "upgrade" to something worse.I have read, that it is possible..even..with the same type strain ( 1 or 2 ) you can infect/be infected with a worse dose of that same type strain.Any truth to that?
I have been diagnosed IGg positive with HSV1 strain through a blood test. I didn't have any symptom at that time in genital or oral area. With one month before I noticed a few red dots on my penis like small pimples. I had someone performing oral sex on me. My question is, what are the chances to have a false positive? No outbreaks since then just an itching rash which didn't last.. And how can I know what is the site of infection since no symptoms. Is it genital or both since I had kissing as well?
