Re: herpetic whitlow HELP PLEASE
a few months back i was told i had herpes an that was it.my doctor didnt tell me much about it she jus said that it was herpes.
the thing is it's on my pinky finger. i have never had an outbreak in any other area.[ mouth,vagina,anus, ect.] but a close friend of mine has informed me that i might have "herpetic whitlow" she said that there are two types of herpes. Herpes simplex virus 1 & 2. HSV1 is when your body is only affected above the waistline,it is transmitted when touching an object especially when you lesion or wound is open. herpes infection of the finger. it has nothing to do with sexual contact!!! the finger is the most common place to get infected cause you get it from touching anything that had the virus living on it...is this true? it sounds like exactly whats going on with me!!
my doctor also told me that i can get it from touching things which was "rare" thats why i assumed i had "regular" herpes..plz help
please reply a.s.a.p
