I had them on my lip and held fingernail polish removal (with acetone) to them and used the walmart brand neosporin and its worked for me, if you catch it early it works best. When I started getting clusters of bumps in the genital area, I went to the dr, twice for the same time. The dr said he was 98% sure it was herpes. My ex husband had cheated on me so I knew it was a possibility. They tested for hsv (herpes), yeast, and other stds as well. They all came back negative. But I don't believe the drs actually tested for hsv type I which usually shows up 'above the belt' such as the mouth and face but can cause breakouts in the genital area though it doesn't have preference there. YOU CAN GET BOTH TYPES EITHER PLACE. I paid for almost 300$ testing later at a special private testing center and confirmed I do have type 1. Anyways, I'm 24, told I should do modeling, under 100 pounds, and have 4 beautiful and perfect children. Yet now, somehow I feel he has taken my health and I hate dating because I'm afraid that one day I could spread it to someone else and don't even know or can't explain it to anyone because I'm afraid of the stigma that comes with the condition. Or worse, my babies could get it from me somehow near their eyes or from a towel. Its devastating really.

I hear you! I actually got Type 1 'down below' from my then husband. He didn't realize he had a cold sore in his mouth and well....yup he gave it to me. I was 23 y/o when I get it and am now 33 y/o, and now back on the dating scene which is awful as I have the same fears as you. And I just can't imagine having to disclose this terrible thing - but I feel it a potential sexual partner should get the choice wether to 'risk it' or not.
