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 read an article about arganine vs lysine. The tests they get this info off were done in a test tube and not on humans. There was also another study done on mice with herpes. Mice die from herpes and when they gave the group of mice higher arganine than the 2nd group, it actually kept them alive longer than the group not given it. I was taking lysine until recently and I've noticed no difference and I eat a vegan diet which is higher in arganine. The only thing lysine seems to do is stop the itchy tingling feeling I get but then again that might be in my head like the placebo effect.

      When I had my first and second outbreak of genital hsv1, I had a weird thing happen with my throat.  The first time which was 2 days before the sores appeared, I woke up in the night unable to breath because my throat felt like it had closed up. The second time it happened it was the same thing but much milder.

      Maybe try black seed oil 1 t? Maybe a sauna or there is a group that will help you build an infared tent. Really great for acne and it will disappear while doing it.  Hormone inbalance?
