Genital herpes outbreak and cold sore?

I’m getting a genital herpes outbreak and cold sores at the same time? Does this mean they’re both the same type of HSV? Or what?

    they are 2 different strains--but I would take this to mean your immune system is weak right now...get more sleep-eat better, take meds, exercise...manage stress.

  • Cold sores are caused by oral herpes, so yes both types of herpes are causes by HSV. Either you're stressed out or your immune system is run down, either can trigger a break out.
