Oral Herpes 101
Oral herpes is caused by the Herpes Simplex Virus type 1 (HSV-1). Herpes Simplex Virus type 2 can potentially cause oral herpes in very uncommon circumstances. Oral herpes is transmitted by oral contact. It's simple to pass along anything from a drink to a kiss (1). It's also worth noting that oral herpes can spread even if there are no physical signs.
HSV-1 is found in 70% of the world's population, making it exceedingly widespread. In addition, roughly half of all Americans between the ages of 14 and 49 are infected with HSV-1 (1).
