I have not been on this website for along time but here I am needing some advice. I have hsv2. My daughter and I went swimming Friday night. I put my swimsuit in my bag with towel and forget about it. We went to the gym last minute tonight and while I was working out, my daughter who is 10 years old, took my swimsuit and went swimming. I was freaked out and told her not to share the same swimsuit as I do. She dont know anything about herpes and that I have it. Should I be worried? I have hsv2 and HPV. I try to protect my kids as much as possible. I just worried because the swimsuit was damp from Friday night and I started my medication on wed...I just dont know if HSv2 and HPV can live on damp clothes...

Zero chance of your genital HPV. 

There are over 100 types of HPV though, mostly nothing to worry about.

      I believe it’s type 2 but apparently either strain can be found either end! So I will hopefully clarify all this in the coming week!

      @WilsoInAus https://forums.herpesopportunity.com/topic/8577-unprotected-sex-and-transmission-of-hsv2-with-no-symptoms/ Here they say we can shed the hsv2 virus up to 35% of the time. We are far from the 4% transmission rate. That rate is not for everyone. So if i always have prodome and i shed more than others my transmission rate is a lot higher than just 4% so please stop spreading false information.

      Unsure whether this is something to be worried about or not. Coming up to 3 weeks now. I’ve been to a sexual health clinic and they said there’s nothing to worry about. I haven’t had sex in 6 months I’ve also never done it without a comdom. There is no fluid in them even when I’ve tried to squeeze them. There’s also 2 of them near my belly button
