Questions about inoculation

Recommended Posts

Sininen

Someone here said that inoculation is impossible after having the virus for 4 months due to the antibodies. I would like to know if that is absolute fact and if it concerns both HSV-1 and HSV-2? What if you have a giant cut on your finger and touch a sore after those 4 months? What if you give or are given oral sex after those 4 months? What if you break a blister and the content comes out, then break a pimple with those same hands without washing your fingers and hands in between (I'm not sure, but I think I've done that a couple of times when I was a kid and didn't know much anything about herpes) after the 4 month mark?

I've had cold sores since childhood, but I also have atopic skin and get skin rashes every now and then. Often I start to absolutely freak out every time I see a rash somewhere on myself because I fear it might be herpes whithlow or something like that.

It is possible, don't believe anyone who uses the word impossible. It is improbable, but even doctors prescribe antivirals for the whole first year because you don't suddenly become 100% immune to the virus after 4 months.
