If you have a fever blister/cold sore.. does that means you have herpes??
is it normal for people to have fever blisters.. how did they catch it from the beginning and does that mean you have a STD. I mean I seen alot of people that had blisters does that mean they have herpes... and last question... is there any other reason why blisters develop besides having herpes simplex
1) Yes, having fever blisters/cold sores means you are infected with one of the two herpes simplex viruses, Most fever blisters (oral herpes) are caused by hsv-1.
Fever blisters are a type of herpes on the lips or in the genital areas.
Yes -- cold sores are caused by a type of the herpes simplex virus -- similar to the STD one -- it's transmitted through contact -- sharing drinks, forks. . . lips.
HSV-2 is the main cause of genital herpes. HSV-1 is the main cause of oral herpes (cold sores), but it also causes a small percentage of genital herpes infections. The same JAMA study found that while the prevalence of HSV-1 is decreasing, this virus may be causing more cases of genital herpes. The percentage of people who had genital herpes and tested positive for HSV-1, but not HSV-2, increased by 350% from 1988 - 2004.
Fever blisters are a form of the herpes virus...there are 2 forms, as has already been mentioned. But I want to let you know that if you have a fever blister you can spread it by having oral sex while it is contagious. A fever blister touching the genital area can then cause the genital form of herpes.
They are not quite the same thing. They are both caused by a virus which remains dormant within the skin and can be set off by something like stress, a fever or a cold (hence a cold sore).
