The thing about this type of herpes is that it’s really common. Approximately 3.7 billion, or 67 percent of adults under 50 have herpes simplex 1. This is the type of herpes that only shows up on your mouth as a cold sore. Roughly 417 million people ages 14-49, or 11 percent, have herpes simplex 2, the kind that shows up as genital herpes, according to the World Health Organization.
