Transmission Question

Recommended Posts

Scared00

Hi, can someone tell me if they have any knowledge of how long the virus can survive on a tube of cream? The cream has antibiotic, antifungal and steroid properties. I use it for my lichen sclerosus and so far haven’t had any other diagnosis regarding herpes, however a family member went and used my cream (!) and I am in anxiety overdrive. 

Thank you.

I think it can be summarised as:

a. Herpes doesn’t live off the body on a tube of cream for very long or in any infectious quantity; plus

b. You dont have herpes.

Equals zero chance of transmission.

@WilsoInAus thank you for your reply. My anxiety went a bit nuts because a family member used my cream and I do not know their status. Hence the questions. So just to clarify, even if my family member had hsv then transmission is still unlikely?

thank you again !

@WilsoInAus apologies I just am concerned you may not have seen my reply as I edited it to include a clarification. 

My main concern would be if my family member had hsv, would that be transmitted to myself in the above scenario? (If I used the cream at least a day apart)

Thank you again for your time and patience.

      Him holding my hips, grabbing ass, then grabbing his cock is what I worry about. I also worry about shedding anywhere from the boxer shorts area and that's a mighty big area. It is the unknown. It would be nice to cover the entire area and then I just don't have to worry! Then the part that is exposed which  would be a very small spot. Maybe cover with that liquid glove?!? I just like the idea of doing my best

      I wouldn’t because that would be outing myself as well unfortunately. It just sucks because our mutual friends have no clue why I carry such resentment towards him, and wonder why they can’t even bring up his name around me anymore. Im sure they think I’m a crazy jealous person who is hurt things didn’t work out or that I’m being dramatic for no reason. I can’t explain to or confide in anyone but the users on this forum.

      Girl! I am actually on the same exact position. My new bf gave it to me and he put the blame on me! When he was my 2nd partner and I hadn’t had sex in 5 years (last guy was a virgin). I know that alone feeling but know you’re not alone. I just got diagnosed 2 weeks ago too. It’s crazy you see yourself differently but I promise no one around you does.

      How would that location (upper crack) come in contact with him during doggy style sex? Maybe after the act if he fell on top of you while you're face down. I would suggest simply observing whether there are sores in these areas that are somewhat removed from the genital area. If there are no sores than the odds of you transferring to him such as the lower stomach or leg etc.., are pretty damn low. Obviously, we can come always come up with a scenario where you could transmit. For example, if you were on your stomach and he was sliding his dick up and down your butt crack and you had sores there, then yes, he could get infected. If you were just shedding there it would be less likely but possible. But try doing that with your clothes on. I don't think that would work out very well; Do you?  Wearing clothes during sex like that woman you portrayed in your earlier comment is sexy. But that's all together different.
