Can you spread herpes if I have no sores or symptoms?

I've had herpes for two months I'm finding it hard to cope with it but I'm curious for the future can I spread it into other people if I have nothing there? I can't seem to use condoms as I get sore and irritated for a few after, also I've had oral sex with the boy who I got it of so does this mean now that I'm going to get it around my mouth as well?:/ someone please get back to me!

  • Once you have one of the viruses (there are two types HSV 1 and HSV 2) in one place it is very unusual to get it in another place as your body makes defensive antibodies to stop you getting it in other places. Remember you can get the other type of HSV though!

    There's lots of rubbish on the internet about herpes the only site I recommend you look at is the Herpes Viruses Association which has everything you need to know.
