Re: hsv-1 and hsv-2 differences?

I didn't have groin pain but I did have tenderness and irritation in the genital area for a few months after contracting genital type 1 and I found I couldn't use scented soaps etc any more. A woman's menstrual cycle can influence her outbreaks, although it's not the case for everyone (it doesn't seem to have affected me so far for oral or genital type 1).
