I would think you would have to have a nice size cut for the virus to enter. I highly doubt it can enter cracked hands due to dryness because the skin on the hands is thick and tough.

Well a cut and having dry skin would be the same thing, OPEN wounds are the path way to having inffection to enter your skin or "blood system". you gotta look that the factors 1)ladies hand aren't that tough as guys 2) ladies use lotion which mean the cut made from dry skin would be expose and take longer to heal.

A wound and dry skin are not the same thing!! There are several layers of skin so well it's not likely you will acquire the virus due to dry skin. Now if you have a cut on your hands or a nice size break then just make sure you do not touch your sore when you have an outbreak.

Well what i meant by that is if you had dry skin to the point that it cracked leaving an open wound. that's what i meant sorry my friend.

      It’s related to the estrogen/progesterone balance. You can google and find a lot of info about it.  I have the same problem.  I’ve also recently read about the link to prostaglandins and hsv, and those increase during periods, too.

      I found the love of my life ( my wife) after I contracted herpes. She is totally supportive and understanding. Never give up hope! After my first outbreak and diagnosis I was a WRECK! Depression like you wouldnt belive, but in time you will find its more of an inconvenience than anything. My best advice is to be very selective about who you want to date and tell your secret too. There is still a stigma about herpes and gossip can damage your self esteem.

      Postherpetic neuralgia 15% of the time is hsv1. It lives in your nerve ganglia. I don't see why that's so far fetched when it is well supported by research.

      I have HSV & foot nerve pain. I am 100% sure it's from HSV. My Infectious Disease Dr, very well known in NJ, said it is a possibility, he is not ruling it out. There are many strains of HSV & the one I have affected my feet.  I take L-Lysine, Daily Complete Vitamins & Vitamin B-12. My heart goes out to you. I will pray you find relief. Keep your head up & think positive. Sending hugs. Keep us posted

      The chance of getting some HPV-Strain in life (as a person that is not abstinent) is literally about 99% i read. 
      And in 90% of cases the virus is gone after 2 years. And the chance of cancer is looooots smaller than 10% - you just go get your pap smears, so if something happens they know right away and they can treat it. Getting a positive pap smear at some point in life is super-common as a woman.
