So if any of these look familiar to you on your body or on your partner please go get tested by a doctor! Or get your partner tested! It's best to hold off on sex or kissing until you get tested to see if you test positive for HSV-1 or HSV-2.
Well if you've seen all or any of these Herpes symptoms pictures on you or your partner, you should be worried.
I hate to say it but you should.
Why? Because Herpes is highly contagious. While Herpes is not dangerous or life threatening, it can be easily passed on to your sexual partners.
Here's some ideas on what you should do next:
1. Get Tested. This is the most important thing you should do if you suspect you have Oral Herpes or Genital Herpes. Your doctor can direct you to a testing center. Or give the people at GetSTDtested.com a call at 866-431-8717 and they can answer your questions about testing. Herpes blood tests are very accurate and affordable.
2. Get your partner tested! Even if you suspect that you are the one with Herpes, getting your partner tested is a good idea because they might have given it to you, or you might have given it to them. I know it's an uncomfortable topic to talk about, but have courage.
3. Check out some Herpes Products. I've written an article on Herpes products such as medication, Dynamiclear, and educational resources you can find useful.
4. Educate yourself. I have also written a seven step action guide that goes into much more detail about how to live with Herpes than what is on this website. The action guide is called the The Herpes Survival Guide. You might find that very useful also.
Lots of helpful tips in there on topics such as:
