okay question,
i have genital herpes.
my boyfriend has it too. but when he went and got tested the day i found out i had it, they found a herpes bump in his mouth but told him he only has genital herpes not oral. and that genital herpes and cause cold sores and other symptoms in your mouth as welll.
does this mean he has oral herpes too???
im always having outbreaks .. hes never had any outbreak on his genitals. hes never had any cold sores or anything. but i always get cols sores bad since i was real little because my lips are always badly chapped and cracked.
but my cold sores dont blister or crust or have any liquid in them.
im confused on all this herpes stuff and im trying to learn.

you've asked multiple multiple questions now about this.

what more do you expect us to tell you that we haven't told you already?

if he has symptoms, he needs seen.
Talking about std testing is NORMAL and something we all should be doing EVERY TIME before we have sex with a new partner :)
