Patient: I had an STD test come back positive for Herpes type 1. I heard that is only for cold sores and fever blisters which I think I had once as a teen. Does this also mean I have genital herpes? Should I worry about that also? Thanks
Doctor: HI.Thanks for your query, albeit short and specific.The Herpes I is herpes simplex.The genital herpes if posit ive id called herpes genitalis.These two are different.Hope this helps you.
