Exclamation Not sure if I have herpes

Well when I was a child I would put my mouth on everything, like most children; but I did this until 12-13.
Well, needless to say I got a few cold sores from this...
Are all cold sores caused by herpes? The girl I've been with for the past 2+ years also had a couple cold sores in her life. I'm 17 & she's 16
Do you think we would have Herpes or could coldsores becaused by other things?
Do you think it could be something else?
I just want to be sure because were not in a committed relationship and I dont want to spread herpes.

Re: Not sure if I have herpes

Yeah, all cold sores are herpes. Can be spread to the genitals. Can actually spread it to someones genitals if you go down on them.

There is some evidence out there that shows that people with HSV-1 don't get it in the genitals if they have it in another area, like the lips, but only if they have it for several months.

Side note: I have been with 3 women who have had sores while going down on me, and I have been tested and am not a carrier. Though it is possible, but rare to get HSV-2 on the lips.

Another side note: I really wouldn't test this theory out, since I have started researching Herpes cold sores, I am much more aware and cautious these days.
