Question about Ghsv1

Recommended Posts

So about a month ago I was diagnosed with genital hsv1. I had a horrible first outbreak but have been fine since then. A few days ago I got a few canker sores in My mouth as well as a bump on my lip. The bump went away in about a 2 days. Never popped or blistered or anything. I was worried that I could have possibly also contracted it orally? Also, the past few months I have been getting laser hair removal. I haven't since I've been diagnosed and was wondering if it could cause an outbreak. I have been having to shave since I haven't been since I am worried about causing another outbreak and am getting razor bumps again, which I now freak out thinking it's another outbreak (they don't hurt or itch but some appear as pimples). Any answers or suggestions? Thanks!

It's funny you mention laser hair removal because I had my first experience of prodomes 2 days after my first session of laser hair removal and then a few days later had my first outbreak of ghsv1. I too have wondered if the laser might have had something to do with it because I'd never had a breakout and didn't know I had the virus. Wish I could be more helpful but I don't know. I guess it could've potentially caused the initial outbreak because the intense heat could definitely stress the skin but as for maybe coming into contact with instruments that might have been in contact with hsv1 I think it's highly unlikely because the virus can't survive off the skin for very long.
