I accidentally cut near my anus while shaving. It’s been a week and I put neosporin on it everyday. There is slight pain when I poop at and slight blood on toilet paper. Is this just the cut not healing yet or something serious?

Can herpes be transmitted directly from the urine stream of one person to an open cut on the genitals/anus of another person? Ie "water sports"

Can herpes be transmitted directly from the urine stream of one person to an open cut on the genitals/anus of another person? Ie "water sports"

Herpes and sports: Herpes sores have viruses and can spread through contact sports like Greco-Roman wrestling. Water sports are unlikely to cause one's viruses to enter the skin of a teammate or competitor... so the answer is NO. However, many things are possible in life (some say all things are possible). In reality, pee or water would wash viruses off of a person's skin, especially a pressurized pee stream. ...Read more
