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.

      I notice in the morning several white bumps and inflammation. An 1h or 2 after and the usual burning sensation, stomach cramps, and vaginal discharge. I took a second dose of valacyclovir during lunch (i take it daily before going to bed but dose up to twice a day if i have an ob) and tonight the symptoms are already gone. No more white bumps, maybe some tiny open sores that i cant really see and some inflammation. How the hell is this possible? Can my herpes ob heal that fast? Does it happen to anybody else? I read they usually last 2 to 3 days.

      I had unprotected sex about 3 days ago and I got a single bump that has no fluid, but has a yellow tint to it when I shine a flashlight on it. I shaved recently before the unprotected sex and had some irritation prior. Is this yellow coloration associated with herpes? Please let me know if you guys think this is herpes? Thanks

      Are you sure it's not related to diet and subsequent weight gain since you got hsv?

      I mentioned in a post that I have a burning sensation on my mouth. Dermatologist keeps trying to say it's Fordyce spot, but cannot give me a solid explanation as to why my lips burns and how my girlfriend developed the exact same symptoms.  I find it unlikely that two people both have flu-like symptoms, tingling on the lips, and they both got it at the same time.

      You literally never kiss your partner?
