......but herpes symplex 2, aka: coldsores, is something you either have in your system, or do not have in your system. I've never had a coldsore in my life, and I was under the impression that it was simply because the virus doesn't exist in me. Could I still acquire it? It's not a goal, PP has one now though and as usual, I'm simply not scared because of this belief. If I'm wrong, I'd hate to get some fucked up face sores 'cause I was mis-informed.
