I'm just curious...if someone has genital herpes can that certain type spread to someone's mouth? Can HSV 2 cause HSV 1? And is there a difference between the cold sores if one is caused by HSV 2 and one is caused by HSV 1? I've researched that if you get genital herpes the virus stays in the body forever, is this Also the case for cold sores? Or is it only the case for cold stress of it was caused by HSV 2? E.g if someone has genital herpes and then someone gives them oral, if they get a cold sore, will that virus stay in their body forever? Also, my boyfriend has like really small white dots underneath his foreskin. They aren't painful and I think they've always been there. He's only ever had one other sexual partner and he's never had sex without a condom and he's never received oral or done anal sex. Thanks in advance
