If you have herpes 1 will you get herpes 2?

Dear Dr. Rob:

Is it true that if you already have the herpes 1 virus
that you are not likely to get the herpes 2 virus?

Dr Rob’s Response:

Dear Poster Asking about Herpes Type 1 and 2:

Herpes 1 and Herpes 2 are two distinct viruses. Getting one
does not preclude getting the other. Most Herpes Type 1 is
transmitted orally. Most Herpes Type 2 is transmitted sexually.
But the fact is, 20% of genital herpes is transmitted orally and
20% of oral herpes is transmitted genitally.
