Hello

It is very unlikely they will ever have a break out.

Most people never do.

They can be infected and fight off the virus.

The type one does not like this location as much as the oral location.

however, there is the possibility they can get type one on the genitals, it is not zero, perhaps, 5% or somewhat more in terms of risk , since you had an outbreak.

More likely is that they will show exposure to the virus on a blood test, but never have an outbreak.

OK, so you might have more questions or want to give me more information: Please use reply to expert if you have further questions. When you are ready, please click a positive rating [hopefully excellent—that’s how we are paid, per rating]. If you forgot something, come back. I am here daily.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
