Doctor told me nearly 90%+ of people have herpes- of course most have herpes 1- the type passed on by kissing- grandparents can transmit it, relatives when they greet families- etc- cold sores- which remain contagious even after the scab mostly heals and it becomes not so noticeable
Course it’s not deadly- but i was shocked that so many people around the world have it- it’s almost a given that a person is gonna get it-
I actually dodged the herpes 1 virus for most of my life until the last decade. Never got a cold sore, ever, until I was first infected in my 40s.
It doesnt even required direct contact. You can get it from shared eating utensils.
Chicken pox is a form of herpes as well
I've been plagued with cold sores since I was a young child.
One thing I have noticed tho, since I retired, the flare ups have subsided considerably which leads me to believe that the stress levels at work may have been an underlying cause of them....
Couple that with the fact that the CDC (or was it the FDA?) determined that condoms fail 40% of the time in faggot sex and 10% of the time in heterosexual sex.
If ever there was an argument for heterosexual, monogamous marriage.............
