What is herpes?

Report as

I was born with oral herpes (cold sores), so how did that happen if it is a sexually transmitted disease? Please don't characterize this virus as something as disgusting as a STD (genital herpes is a STD). I don't need any more embarrassment about the eruptions than I already feel. They generally erupt following a particular time of stress.

Not very much fun is it? My sister gets them in her nose. I think I had a sore in my mouth once...that was not cool. My notifications are not working very well tonight. Forgive me if I miss anything. Please feel free to summon me again...

I'm so sorry to hear about that but there's nothing I can do about it. I know what it feels like to be embarrassed but at least you had enough courage to put that online for the public to see. I now admire you both. You guys are my new role models.

What does "it's a decise" mean? If you're trying to say its a DISEASE, you're wrong... It's a virus.
