Too tired to read all 6 pages, going to bed, but this is important, so I wanted to say...
There are 2 types of herpes (actually, at least three, but one is quite different)
1. Oral Herpes - this is the type people get routinely on the mouth, can be transferred to the naughty bits (referred to as 'cold sores', but have nothing to do with colds or the cold)
2. Genital Herpes - this is the type people get routinely on the naughty bits, can be transferred to the mouth (referred to as 'ewww, that's gross, get that away from me *puts pants back on quickly*')
3. Shingles, the condition you can get if you have previously had varicella (chicken pox). It is technically called Herpes Zoster.
