Question

If my partner and I both have HSV-2, is there a chance of reinfection elsewhere in the genital region. In short, do we have to wear condoms? Also what are the chances that we can spread it to our facial area?

The short answer would be no. However, you could possibly pass it to your mouth during oral. That would be extremely rare since once you have it you're usually immune (but this depends on how long you've had the virus, if it's been under 3 months you probably don't have many antibodies so you're more likely to pass it orally). Theorethically, it could happen, but if you've had it more than 3 months I doubt it.

My gf and I don't use condoms and have not passed anything in well over a year. Neither of us are worried. For what it's worth.
