Personal wipes

Hi. The hospital I work at has personal cleansing wipes for each of our patients. Sometimes we the staff will take a bag for ourselves and place them in the bathroom. When I used the bathroom a pack was in there and open.  I used the last 2 wipes in the pack. Is there any possibility that the virus got in the pack or on the pack from an infected person’s hands and transferred to me when I used those wet cleansing wipes?

No the HSV1/2 virus does not transfer this way. Other bacteria and viruses are far more likely to spread into the bag (even then an extraordinarily low chance) but pragmatically would not live at all long and be killed off by oxygen and alcohol agents in the wipes.

      As I understand it, if you take it several times it will be different each time.  Its the way the tests works.  Mine were back and forth within that range.  If I take it again  I could be higher or lower but I will be in the positive range.

      That's interesting. When you say it was between those numbers, do you mean it climbed slowly, or went back and forth? I'm curious because I had a second test and it came back lower than the first one. It went from 1.60 to 1.21 after 7 weeks.

      The numbers don't really mean much except whether positive or negative.  Ive had 4 tests within the last 18 months and all were between 1.3 and 1.6 for hsv1. Sometimes the low numbers can be false positive for hsv2 but false positives are less frequent on hsv1.  Im like you.  Im assuming I became positive in my early childhood as I've never had a breakout.  I do think your body gets better at managing the virus as you get older.  Ive even heard of some people seroconverting to a negative result on the test but they still have the virus.
