Do cold sores on the penis convert to genital herpes?
My wife has Alzheimer's and I have been giving her a very small dose of marijuana extract in honey. It seems to have calmed her and has eliminated her angry outbursts. Is there any problems with this.
Regarding herpes virus
Hello. thank you.
I am Dr. Kakkar (Dermatologist and Venereologist). I have noted your concern.
HSV type 1 commonly causes cold sores and HSV type 2 genital sores though this distinction is not absolute.
Once infected herpes simplex virus (HSV) would stay with you forever. It lays dormant in spinal nerve ganglions and reactivates from time to time to cause oral or genital sores.
Perhaps, your genital herpes is a result of autoinoculation from cold sores. It is rare though possible.
