Cold Sores and Herpes question

This past weekend I recieved an E-mail from a lady friend that I had not interacted with for some time. We had

developed a friendship and I undertook a parental mentor outlook towards her. As you may expect, I guard our

correspondence with great zeal and secrecy, for I am not about to reveal who this friend is, or where she is now

located. Her privacy is of great priority from me. You may rest assured, that this E-mail sender is not connected

to VisaJourney.com in any form or manner.

However, I am not familiar with the any answers that I can give to her question. I come to my friends here at

VisaJourney so that I may obtain additional information. I am copying and pasting her question as she put it to

me in her E-mail. Here it is:

" i was wondering if you know what the difference between cold sores and herpes

are. i just cant figure out what i have. i was wondering if you cant give me some

advice. "

I have responded to my lady friend`s question with the following link:

http://www.herpes-coldsores.com/cold..._really_Herpes

If you wonder why I am asking for your additional advise, my response is this:

I believe that we all are prone to this virus at one time or another. I hope that you take the time to read this

linked information for you own protection and knowledge of what this virus is all about.

I am still asking each and everyone of you to advise me on any further information you may add.

Robert

I needed to edit this post when I clicked on the link, you will see the message. However, there is a lot of info

out there on this...I will appreciate your advise. Try the link though.

So you're not the source of her current malady and are some kind of fatherly figure. Daddy Warbucks?

Why would anyone want to know who she is or where she lives?

"Cold sores" are the layman's term for an orofacial herpes infection. Herpes Simplex 1 (HSV-1) is the primary cause, which can be obtained from oral contact with another person who has HSV-1. In some cases, someone may be infected with orofacial herpes after coming into contact with Herpes Simplex 2 (HSV-2), which is generally referred to as "genital herpes." The reverse can also be true -- someone with HSV-1 may infect another person if oral-to-genital contact is initiated.

To paraphrase my advice in another thread: your friend needs to go see a Doctor. You are not a Doctor, and it's ridiculous for them to try to make this diagnosis on their own. The longer your friend waits, the worse it will be. Do your friend a huge favor and urge her to see a doctor ASAP.

Run, Forrest, Run!


Don't just open your mouth and prove yourself a fool....put it in writing.

It gets harder the more you know. Because the more you find out, the uglier everything seems.

Mox, you are one of the reasons I continue to come back to V/J...No matter how stupid and inconsiderate some here

may be, at times, people like you make VisaJourney a place I want to respect.

I respect you Mox...Thanks for you advise...I told my friend that I was not a doctor, and that she should see one

immediately.

Awww shucks, thanks. :blush::) Although to be honest, you just haven't been around me long enough. I'll eventually alienate you too. :lol:

Cool! Best of luck to your friend, I hope it's just a cold sore. And if she's putting herself at risk for STD's, I hope this will be the wake-up call she needs to adjust her lifestyle.

I don't mean to be rude, but... if you knew you should consult a physician beforehand, why did you come here looking for information and advice? :unsure:

This is not to the OP's question but what about those actors on the commericial for some treatment for genital herpes.

Actor: "I have genital herpes"

Actress: "And I don't"

Imagine you're the actor. Somebody sees you on the street and recognizing you from the TV. "Hey, aren't you the guy with genital herpes?"

Mox, you are not being rude. I think that at the end of my post I wrote the same question you ask me. However I wrote

that I needed any additional info you could provide. Sorry if I misunderstood (or did I?) "if you knew you shoud consult

a physician beforehand, why did you come here looking for information and advice?" Ummmm, its not me Mox, I swear! I hope that you don`t interpret that to mean that it is me with the virus. Mox, I am so old that this thing will

not affect me anymore, believe me. My immune system has been good to me Mox.
