I'm also wondering if I've never had symptoms of herpes 2... is there a chance that I could've passed that along as well?

Did you give him oral sex?

Do you know what he means when he says his daughters have herpes?

How long ago did you have sex with him? Thank you.

Did you give him oral sex?

What was the date you had sex with him?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I gave him oral sex on 2/3, we had sex on 2/6. I got a cold sore on 2/10 and have had no contact with him since 2/6.
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. Norm S., Board Certified OB/GYN replied 2 years ago

Since you gave him oral sex, he could have gotten genital herpes from you.

If he got oral herpes from you, he could possibly have passed it on to his daughters by kissing them. It's a very contagious virus. But unless his daughters developed cold sores, it seems highly unlikely that they both got herpes from this.

It's possible to have genital herpes and not be aware and have symptoms, but since you got the cold sore prior to giving him oral sex, it's far more likely that he got genital herpes from the oral sex.

He could have gotten both oral and genital herpes from you, oral from kissing and genital from your giving him oral sex.

It's one of the risks of having sex.

Ok, but I didn't get the cold sore prior to having sex or oral sex with him. I got the cold sore 7 days after oral and 4 days after sex. Does the same thing still apply

Had you never had a cold sore before?

since I was a child
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. Norm S., Board Certified OB/GYN replied 2 years ago

You're contagious before the cold sore comes. And you can spread the herpes virus even when you have no symptoms. So I think the same things apply.

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.

Daughter is 13. No contact with anyone. Came to me and said
Came to me and said she had a sort of blister she popped while in the pool. I didn't think much of it. Said to her it might have been an ingrown hair. She then came and said that some skin beside it felt itchy, and 2 bumps were forming. She showed me. The popped one is weeping a bit. The other two look a little raised. She is extremely clean. Changes her underwear 5 times a day. (drives me nuts, the amount of laundry.. But at least she's in the right direction)... She is home schooled with her brothers and has not had any inappropriate contact. One of the pools here in Costa Rica (where we are living this year) has been shocked quite hard this week. And she said she used a new bar of soap from a hotel we were at last week and she thought the bar was cute. So she's been using that. What are your thoughts? … read more
