spreading virus thru touching

Recommended Posts


Just wondering how easy virus can spread if I touch my partner genitally when he is not having an outbreak? Do you think I'm okay as long as I wash my hands right after and are careful not to touch myself anywhre else? Does the virus pass only thru skin to skin contact and not by semen?

I was just reading about ways it can be spread, i read you can pass it to other parts of yourself by touching with out washing. As long as he doesn't have outbreaks, your good to touch. Be sure to wash your hands tho before touching yourself. Also becareful when giving oral to him. It is possible to catch it from him by giving oral. Being carefula bout outbreaks is your best bet for anything.

and always make sure to check your hands and especially nails and fingers to check for tiny cuts, hang nails or any opening in the skin....it is possible to get it on your hands if he happens to be shedding and there is an entry point....other than that just wash hands really well afterwards.

      All I know is what the pipeline says. And it says that trials don't start until 2019/2020. How long they will run and whether they will be successful remains to be seen. Also remember that the start of trials depends on whether the animal studies are successful. And there are always delays even when things are going well from a medical standpoint. So don't get your hopes too high that the trials will start as they currently state. Their biologic is a functional cure at best, not a sterilizing cure. But I don't think there will be too many complaints about that. I thought you already new about Excision Bio and their work.

      It is possible, but id be getting a definitive test. Id get a swab and blood test for confirmation.

      This is not caused most probably by herpes. Suggest you need to see a doctor to pursue some other directions.

      You said that you hoped this would help someone. Well, today it helped me.  I've been broken too many times to count. Unlike that glow stick though we get broken over and over again sometimes. But if we allow ourselves to heal from the brokenness; we can light up this dark world.Thank you:)
