Re: PLEASE ANSWER PLEASE!!! tHANKS!
yes, it is possible to spread herpes without an outbreak if you are shedding, which can happen with no symptoms. asymptomatic shedding is estimated to be fairly common, so i don't know that it is necessarily less common. i'm sure someone can answer that for you, though.
so, do you think the tear could be herpes? not sure if i understood that. herpes usually presents as blisters first, but it can vary so widely from person to person and ob to ob. i would have the doc look at it if you are concerned.
