After giving a girl oral sex a few weeks ago, a blister appeared on my lip a week later, which was accompanied by swollen lymph nodes and some nausea, as well as continued cold sores on my lips since. I believe, therefore, that I have contracted HSV-2 orally (as I have had HSV-1 for as long as I can remember).
My main concern now is how to proceed in order to avoid spreading HSV-2 to my genitals. I do not know how common that is, but even though I have learned a lot about herpes (and how exaggerated the general perception of it is), I would still like to do everything I can to avoid genital herpes. This problem is made more difficult by the fact that I do not have health insurance, but may be willing to pay out of pocket if treatment would be worth it. Thanks!
