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 do belive. It is going to be SADBE and Sqarex. I am on it and it is great.

      Thank you. Yes, I was on Positive Singles and met someone I was with for 2 years. We recently broke up but may work things out. Truth be told, dating is touch. With or without a virus.

      A possible problem is that it will possibly be overshadowed by emails regarding other health problems such as cancer which carry no stigma and therefore have a more massive amount of requests.

      @nydb1 I feel you can be quite confident that you do not have genital herpes here.  Please return to your doctor for further diagnosis and treatment.

      Maybe this has been asked already, but is there way we could get everyone on the site to write emails to the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation?  If they got 1000s of emails about this issue maybe they would fund people like the researchers at Penn?????????
