I have read in the following website that different strains of HSV 2 exists. And some cause more serious symptoms than others. http://www.innerself.com/Sex_Talk/herpes.htm
Terri, do u agree with this finding?
The article is as follow:
No. There are different strains. Some apparently never cause repeated outbreaks, others are more severe. In addition each person reacts differently to a herpes infection, some people having many recurrences, others with the same strain having few or no recurrences. If you have genital herpes and you meet someone else with genital herpes you should still make sure that you take steps to avoid catching their type.
