My wife and I recently found out that we both have HSV2, but have never really had sores or breakouts. We have 2 healthy children. This site has helped a lot to ease my fears, but i still have lots of questions.

1. The younger one is 15 months and still breastfeeding. Early on my wife would occasionally get cracked nipples or the baby would pinch the breast and draw blood. Is there any chance if our baby could get HSV from this?

2. I scraped my knuckle a day or so ago. today i didnt have a bandaid on to let it dry out. My baby put her mouth on/near the scrape. Same question??

1- no, no risk. she doesn't have herpes on her nipples or in her breast milk

2- herpes is not blood borne so not a risk.

keep asking questions!
