Don't worry. It'll get better. Also, the herpes you get on your face isn't the same virus as the one you get down there - so no worries!

Children can be cruel... Keep your head up OP! I'm sure everything will clear up with them, and your mouth in no time!

Remember the old saying any publicity is good as long as they spell your name correctly? You have word of mouth in your favour!!

For positive things, yes publicity is good, but would something like this really be a good thing, because for a we know OP could be referred to as some obnoxious name.

OP should just tell whomever bullies him with it that he got it from their mom. A: haha you got herpes OP: yeah sorry got it from your mom last weekend

If it makes you feel any better, OP, when I was in high school, this one kid started a rumor that I let my dog lick peanut butter off my crotch. I was forced to deal with being called "Jif" for two years until I finally beat the shit out of someone for it. It will get better.

oh god you tried but two years of bullying and having to beat up someone might not be something OP would like to look forward to. :D

My point was that having a little acne isn't as bad as some of the other things that could happen. Just gotta keep your head up.

That's not true. You can get Herpes/HSV 1 (typically referred to as oral herpes) on your mouth as well as your genitalia. Same as HSV 2 (typically referred to as genital herpes). HSV 1 occurs in about 80% of the population (in America or the world..I forget). I have oral Herpes, my mom gave it to me lol. It's typically no big deal.

Be careful! HSV-1 normally infect the top part of the body and HSV-2, the lower part. Howewer, HSV-1 can still cause genital herpes and HSV-2 can produce mouth herpes. Therefore, you can infect yourself if you have mouth herpes and you are not careful. You could get genital herpes. You can even give genital herpes to your partner if you have mouth herpes. It is not because they have a different number (1 and 2) that they can't do the same thing. It is just less likely to get an HSV-2 infection

They are correct. Both are interchangeable. I guess that's why they started the supposed rumours in the first place. People are such assholes.

Herpes is not that common among Americans. But I just got it earlier this year which wasn't that bad. But being in nose it set off a "minor" case of shingles. Now THAT was very nasty, especially for being a healthy 41 year old I was not expecting it.

Actually, they are transmittable to any mucus membrane on the body. You can get type 2 (genital) on your mouth and you can get type 1 (cold sores) on your... special area. People need to check their facts before giving someone advice, because this is how people keep spreading it.

I don't know if we call them like that because I speak French, but herpes is caused by a virus. You can even get it in your eyes or your skin (It is really not common to have it on your face except your mouth, but some people are not lucky). People don't really know about herpes but it is not caused by a fiever or cold. But, if you already have the virus, it can reactivate himself because your immune is a little bit down when you are sick, causing the fiever blisters you are talking about.

And again my message is not getting through, probably because of the url I linked. Just do a Google search for cold sore statistics for my source... Not that common? It's one of the most common virus' one can have, especially since you can't get rid of it once you have it. About 70% of american adults have oral herpes. Most people won't display the symptoms however, since anyone with a decent resistance will not have any problems with it.

Year-round school, possibly. They have different break schedules than regular schools. Or it could be summer school.

Acne is like Rattatas. First you see one zit, then another, and another, and basically it becomes all you see. I'm sure it will get better though, OP. :) And with the rumors, you know firsthand it's not true. Everyone else is just ignorant.
