Welcome to HealthcareMagic. Herpes is a sexually transmitted disease. Studies have shown that HSV is present in genital fluids of people with genital herpes, even when they do not have active herpes lesions. Even after genital herpes lesions heal, the virus is not eradicated; instead it takes up residence in nerve endings and may be reactivated periodically. On having oral sex with a person having genital herpes, there are chances of virus transmission.

Hope it helps you. Regards.
