What is hhv? They did check for hsv-1 but not hsv-2. I have just recently learned that I have hsv-2 and have had it for quite sometime and have not known it. I’m thinking I should have him tested. My husband does not have it so it must have been prior to my marriage 8 years ago. My son has never had any cold sores or anything else resembling herpes. Oddly enough though, I just had this checked during my annual because during the time my son was getting over the mouth ulcers was the first time I had any sign of something. I had a small out break on the side of my tailbone. I first thought it was somehow caused by the bacteria in his mouth because he scratched my that area while pulling on my jammies. It was so strange but I wasn’t sure what to think of it. Also during his issue last year he had pinworms and I thought maybe that was somehow related. So many variable that it’s hard to pinpoint.
