The : The risk of transmission of the herpes virus can occur at any time, even when you are not symptomatic (asymptomatic transmission). Your boyfriend should wash himself completely and discuss the situation with his doctor. Transmission of the virus can occur by both direct and indirect (touching something that you touched) contact.
