[Question #7204] HSV

9 months ago
My partner has been having body aches and headaches for going on 3 weeks now. No outbreak just body aches and headache he said his whole body just hurts. And he has had Rocky Mountain fever before and feels like it’s the same thing I’m worried because I have hsv 1 we use a condom but sometimes he likes to do oral. I’ve had it for 3 years now.? Could he have hsv 1 making his body hurt or is it probably from another tick bite

I don't believe that without any genital or oral sore, this has anything to do with herpes!  I understand that you have this concern, but I don't believe his symptoms have anything to do with your HSV 1.  Also, after being infected genitally for more than 2 years, you are very unlikely to be giving off virus more than a few days a year.  has he actually been tested to know that he is not infected with HSV 1 already?

No he just has stated he doesn’t have anything he gets tested once a year how ever he is an older male late 40s

Lots of people think that herpes testing is included in an STD panel, but often, it is not!
