I'm stuck in a country where it's very hard to find an English speaking doctor. Most of us get cold sores on the lip. I've had it for years, except the very last time the outbreak was on the side of my nose for the first time, instead of the usual place on my lip. Is it normal for herpes type 1 to transport from the lip to the nose ? My last girlfriend just emailed me saying she tested positive for Herpes type 2 I've had no outbreaks in my genital area whatsoever. Only thing I've had since last seeing her is random itching all over my body, and when I do itch it makes my skin flush up, very red with a heat sensation for a short while then it goes away. Could that be an early sign for HSV 2 ?
