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.

      Why is it your worst fear to have GHSV-1?

      Not sure if this has already been mentioned before, could we donate to his lab? Hsv specifically?

      It can be very difficult to diagnose I do not know the lab discussed here but I have read about sexual health clinics that no longer use the blood tests for this reason of false negatives. Even swabs can be hard they were in my case.  I know I have it and never resorted to the biopsy.

      Do your own research and consult with GP's. I would assume you have this until its totally ruled out.  

      I read about a person on this site who tested neg on the IgG and pos on the weston blot.

      Please do your own research.

      If it is an issue why not speak to admin about creating two separate threads...one for those looking at natural management and "supposed" natural cures and one looking at medical breakthroughs. That way both interests are served, no one is offended and people who wish to look at both can. No one is excluded and everyone included. Those who want to stay with the medical threads can. Maybe there will be less issues that way. 

      Personally I would prefer not to engage with those who are seeking vaccines and gene tech ect esp if they are nasty or condescending and prefer to support and encourage like minded without the excessive debates in a supported enviro.

      Just putting it out there.

      do not panic. be more careful in future and work through the tests. you are better to assume you do and isolate a bit and watch the symptoms. it is hard to test for via blood, and swabs. weston blot is supposed to be most reliable and biopsy too although extreme. red lump that sort of crusted - well herpes symptoms vary widely. 

      it can be hard to deal with doctors as they can assume you do not have it if some test come back neg...they do not always take the attitude to look for it.

      do not panic and follow the steps and research.
