: : : : This is absolutely right; the virus does not just jump from one person to another, you have to have an open skin to skin contact with infected area. The original poster is doing the right thing.

: : : I got the virus from a girl with no symptoms and no open soars. The fact is that the virus can shed and transmit without you knowing. It does not need to be an open soar...

: : You can spread herpes with skin to skin contact while having no symptoms...even just the tingling stage of a herpes sore can spread the disease. My gyn told me that you can spread it if you are in pre or post break out stage, without an open sore, if the area where you typically have break outs is exposed. Herpes is INCREDIBLY contagious, and not something to take lightly. I don't know if this applies to the woman who put a band aid over the bump on her behind...but I would not treat that so casually if I was having sex with someone. It's a persons future

: watch the implied language please.

Implied language how? That was both my opinion (the treating sex so casually part) and my gyns advice (contagious, skin to skin contact spreading if there is tingling). Where exactly did I misspeak?
