Might have HSV2 and so worried about spreading it via non-sexual contact-help please

3 posts in this topic

I am only 41 days past a sexual encounter in which I think I may have contracted HSv2 based on some 4 days of intense tailbone pain, numbness in buttocks and down my legs, some itching on urethra area on shaft of penis, some small dots that lasted 2 days on the head but have not had any active lesion yet or blisters but I am still going out of my mind waiting to test for it with an IGG test at 4 months out. Now my latest concern while I wait to be tested assuming the worst that I have HSV2, I wonder if I can I spread it to other parts of my body and how? If so, how long before it would show signs on those parts of an infection?

You see, I had to wipe my face and mouth off around 5pm tonight at dinner right after I went to the restroom to check my penis today for the millionth time and did wash hands with soap and water but I feel like my lips are tight, dry and I am worried I transmitted a potential infection somewhere else on my body. I looked at my facial lips closely and see some tiny bumps on my lips but don't know if those were always there and are your typical skin cells as (I never really cared about the composition of my lips) before or something else.

Sorry if I seem nuts but I am going out of my mind with this and now am OCD with how clean I make everything and what I do and don't. The last thing I want to do is spread it around my body or worse yet to my kids via shedding, etc. Since I am asking for help with question might as well ask if I should be concerned or how I should give my young children baths without getting any possible infection to them. I couldn't live with myself if I ever got them infected with this should it turn out I have herpes.

Thanks for listening to Mr Paranoid and your responses in advance.

hsv is skin to skin contact. it the only way. If you washed your hands immeditly after uh...checking yourself you really dont have to worry about spreading it to another part of body

oh also dont worry about spreading it to your kids. You can bath them and hug them. To catch hsv 2 they would have to have skin to skin contact with the sore and sense you have hsv 2 they wont be in contact with it at all.

      @_Garden_girl You got to do what you need to do! It does sound like he knew he had it and took no precautions at all to protect you and that's very very fucked up! You have every right to be mad as hell..If he knew that he had it then it really is nothing short of sexual abuse to lie and not wear a condom. In my opinion, what he did is worse than stealthing as you did not consent to the risk of hsv (again, if he knew he had it). You do sound very level-headed and I would certainly encourage you to be composed. As you said, confronting him isn't going to change your diagnosis, but it may prevent it from happening to someone else...and more importantly, people who do bad things need to be held accountable and he should know what he did was wrong.  I rambled a bit...but say what you need to in order to move-on.  I'm sorry you're in this situation. You'll be fine

      Yeah, we're about to kill ourselves as our physical and emotional pain torture us every day while solution could be close... It's all about money after all and our governments don't care. Frustrating! http://aurx.com/2016/10/05/hello-world/

      The igG used to be very suspect and still seems to get it wrong many times. Certainly the survey parts are almost completely unreliable. Never said 1% prevalence...I'm not going to guess.. My point on this thread is only that it's silly to think that prevalence can be so high (on this thread some suggest everyone has genital hsv) and yet transmission so low (it's suggested transmission can be as low as 1% a year above).  They don't want to misestimate. Welcome to humanity where much is uncertain and many errors are made! We all can.

      My quality of life has been demolished. We now have to bear through the rest of our life with no prospect of escaping it. Every morning the first thing I think about is HSV, as I feel burning aching pain. It robs you of laughter, love, motivation,and any hope for a better future to work towards. Everything I do now, I'm teased of what I could have enjoyed if I didn't have this.

      Extremely unlikely that he would become infected from the activity you describe. Essentially zero chance.

      Makes no sense. The studies are as the studies do. What flawed test are you talking about? What point are you making. The statistics are reliable and interpretable. If you want to believe that only 1% of people have HSV or whatever it is you're trying to say, fine, say it and move on. Why on god's earth would anyone want to misestimate the prevalence of any disease? Schoolboy ignoramus stuff mate - you can do better.
