Just recently found out that I have herpes. I tried to be very careful adn scrub my hands and all that stuff, but I now believe that my three year old daughter has this awful stupid virus and I am so sad and ashamed. We both have it on our faces right now and I have it on my hands. I can't stop crying right now. I feel like I have ruined her life. How do I keep it out of her eyes? I really need some advice and help because I am not in a happy place right now. Sorry to be such a downer in my first post, but that is how i am feeling.

It is almost impossible for you to transmit it to your child

You need to go see your pediatrician. Have your doctor take a look at it. Oral herpes is quite common. Some say up to 80 percent of the population has it. Hsv1 is the more mild strain of herpes and if she has it hopefully her immune system will handle it and she will not have outbreaks as she grows older.

I had a cold sore when I was a teenager and have never had one in about 30 years. There are supplements you can take to help control the virus and prevent outbreaks.

Good luck!

      If your eye was affected by HSV you'd be in intense pain and you'd be in the hospital on an antiviral drip.  It is likely a coincidence of timing, and something that you shouldn't overthink.  Definitely worth getting checked anyway since the eye is a sensitive area.

      I found this website today. You can now pre order Viblok but no potential delivery date is given. The company is in Florida and I called but got a recorded message. https://www.viblok.com/

      Here's something interesting. You can now pre-order Viblok.  However, the website does not indicate when it will be available. https://www.viblok.com/

      Hey all. I had an STD check while pregnant with my now 3 yo and it was perfectly clean, hadn’t had another one until a few months ago   I was sexually assulted about 4 months ago. Because of that I asked for all STD testing. My first HSV 2 IGG score came back at 4.00, I requested another 2 weeks later and it’s now a 3.22 IGG. Should I take this as for sure positive or would it warrant a WB at all? Is it normal for numbers to go down like that?   Ive had NO symptoms whatsoever, at any time     Also, condoms, guys what are the best ones that feel as natural as possible?? Any ideas?
