I am so glad to have finally joined one of these groups. My depression over my condition has worsened recently and I find myself spending hours a day and even feeling anxiety to go to work just researching things to try and ways to beat this. When it says 1-2% of the population has this condition, I find it hard to believe that I chose a mate who also had it. Everything I read says that it is not contagious, however my boyfriend had never experienced a single sore, and recently has been getting them more and more. I find his flare ups coincide with my own, and although it is many less lesions, I am worried this is somthing that I passed to him. Now I am not worried about us working together to treat ourselves, however is continued contact of infected regions something we should think about stopping? And even when these sores are not open I still wonder about the risks.
Thanks so much for all of the awesome discussions and comments here that I have been able to learn so much from
