I just want to know how active does herpes virus stay on objects. Me and my roommate are very close she comes in my room and uses a lot of my things. She just got diagnosed with genital herpes. She came in crying and I gave her hugs and such was just really supportive... but then she tells me... that she was using my dildo. I was grossed out and am still in shock. She didnt clean it or anything after she took it from me- so do i have it now too? The dildo of course had been not used for days. Can the virus die after days or would it stay alive? I am really confused.

The virus doesn't survive long at all in an oxygenated atmosphere, so no, it won't live for days on objects like dildos. Once outside the body, it dies quickly.

My personal feeling though is, it's time to buy a new one and hide it. I know you said you and she are close, but there's close, and there's too close, if you know what I mean. :shock:

OMG. I think i'd freak if someone used my personal battery powered friends. That's just insane. Not only would i get rid of that toy, but i'd probably put a kibosh on the borrowing. That's just.... icky!

However, like writercll said, i don't think you have to worry about transmission. BUT EW!!!

      Ok so here’s my background.  I hade my first outbreak genitially about 2 months ago.  I got swabed positive for GHSV1. My blood tests were neg so I am assuming a new infection but who knows if I had it or not.  I been reading on here and other research. So I got oregano oil and started to use it on my lower back with coconut oil to dilute it.  I was putting the combo on and would use a couple large bandaids to apply it and keep it in place overnight.  Did it for about 5 days.  I peeled off my bandaids two days ago and had two sores where the sticky part is about an inch apart.  Does the oregano oil attract the virus to cause an outbreak like this in the spot on lower back or are the sores from irritation of possibly too much oregano oil?  Anyone have a clue if this is an outbreak and caused by putting the oil there?
