hello would you like to chat on this?
yes this does mean that he has hsv1
hsv 1 is a very common infection and the majority of people have had this at some time
is hsv1 std?
so most people will have this
it is not a typical std because it occurs in the mouth
most people who are positive for this have acquited this in childhood
it forms lesions on the lips and around the lips
so children acquire it from other children or from their mothers, etc
should he be worried? is it something serious?
so you can relax, this is not an std
hsv2 is an srd
not at all, nothing to worry
as i said, most people in fact are positive for this
and most people have acquired it in their childhoods
typically it forms lesions around the mouth
though sometimes it can form lesions around the genitals also, in some cases only

cus the doctor saw the report didn't say anything
is he having any symptoms now?
nope not at all
then no, no medicines at all
thank you so much
thats why the doctor didnt say anything, its nothing to talk about
he think he has stds
hsv2 is an std and that would have worried both of you
but not hsv1
not at all, he must have acquired it in childhood
not an std
glad to help
Hope this shows you the way forward - wish you good health and a quick recovery.
