    Why did HSV1 decide to head south and not to my mouth?

    I've recently tested positive for HSV1 on my genitals via a viral culture. I'm nearing the end of my initial outbreak but I am incredibly curious as to why the virus would present itself only in a area outside its place of preference and not around my mouth as well, as one might expect it to be. There was heavy KISSING as well as oral sex. There was clearly virus in my partners mouth, can anyone explain why I'm only having genital symptoms?

    Well there's really no specific explanation, everybody's body is different. 1 in 6 adults have the virus and some don't have any symptoms at all. So symptoms are different person to person. You also have the virus on your mouth so you can infect anywhere or anyone you kiss.
