Yes: Herpes can be transferred from a razor to the face or any other part that is shaved. If your spouse feels burning/tingling sensation on face, may be herpes prior to outbreak of blisters. Fp can prescribe antiviral med to suppress the virus, but he will be susceptible to flares periodically since the virus is never cured.
