Oral herpes is a common STD that is often confused for other infections. Express STD Testing provides information about abut herpes and another STDs. Apart from that, the company also provides private and confidential oral herpes testing services.

According to the site, “Oral herpes is an infection caused by the Herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-2) and herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2). The herpes simplex viruses enter the body and affect the skin and the mucous membrane. Normally oral herpes appears as fever blisters or cold sores on the lips and areas near the mouth. HSV-1 is responsible for oral herpes but there are cases of HSV-2 causing oral herpes. You can get both herpes simplex virus 1 and 2 through oral, vaginal, and anal sex. The symptoms appear as fever, body aches, and swollen lymph nodes. In most cases, people mistake these symptoms with the flu.”

The site also added, “You can get oral herpes through sharing utensils, drinks, and kissing. You can also get oral herpes from a person with genital herpes through orals sex. The virus can exist in bodily fluids such as herpes lesion fluids, blister fluids, sore fluids, saliva, vaginal fluids, and semen. The virus will not cause any symptoms as soon as it gets into the body. When replicating, if the virus damages cells, the blisters appear. There is a dormant phase where the herpes virus stays inactive for different periods of time and become active unpredictably. It is still possible to contract or transmit herpes even if there are no symptoms. This happens in a process referred to as shedding which involves the dropping of cells that have active herpes.”
