Question: Does herpes gladitorium and small pox have any common ground? My son has herpes gladitorium. He hasn't had a breakout for several (3) years, until he entered the military. After a year he got a small pox vaccine and has had two breakouts within 6 weeks of each other.

Answer: Herpes Gladitorum is caused by the herpes simplex 1 virus. It may be because he had just had a smallpox vaccination that it surfaced due to his body dealing with the new virus(Smallpox) Herpes simplex tends to surface when the body is under stress and run down but the two are unconnected.
