Hi Betsy,

You always tell me that there is no risk of my son catching herpes from me. Is that because he has to come into contact with my affected skin? If that were the case I could put this all to rest, because I know that is never going to happen. Also when you speak of the boxer short area, does that mean wearing a swimsuit could be a risk?

Thank you as always for your insight!!

unless they are having intimate contact with you, they are not at risk for your herpes. we do not have that sort of contact EVER with our children.

no, wearing a bathing suit isn't an issue.

you shed from the anogenital area, not the entire boxer short area.

bathing and diaper changing seems like pretty intimate contact to me. Is it that he would need to come into contact with my affected area?

Thank you!

intimate contact as in sexual contact dear. diaper changes are not sexual contact.

yes he would have to be in contact with your genital area to get herpes from you. As I said, we NEVER have this sort of contact with our children.

anogenital is the genital and anal area.

Hi Betsy,

Just to confirm, he would need to come into contact with my genital area to get herpes from me. That means he cannot get it from my hands or anything else that may come into contact with my genital area like a towel.

If this is true then I will be the happiest person in the world. :-)

Thank you!

Hi Betsy,

Could you please confirm that in order for my son to get herpes from me he would have to come into contact with my genital area. Could he get it from my hands or any object that came into contact with my genital area like a towel? Please respond.

Thank you in advance!

Please do not continue to ask me to repeat myself over and over again. I've tried to be patient with you about it but it really is taking advantage of me. I've answered your questions already.

I am definitily not trying to take advantage of you Betsy! I appreciate all your support and patience. Living with this much anxiety is very challenging and everytime you respond to my questions it makes it a little easier. I do not rememeber you telling me that he will not get herpes from my hands or anything that has touched my genital area, just that we do not have that sort of contact with our children. I write this with tears rolling down my face because I feel like I have upset you and all I wanted was some black and white answers. If you could reassure me one more time I will try not to bother you anymore.

Thank you!
