Outbreaks with open sores certainly increases the risk of transmission greatly. Condom use can profoundly decrease the risk of transmission, but is not 100% effective. Best wishes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

No: It would be very unlikely. Sometimes when patients have comorbidities like hiv, then they are more susceptible to viral infections such as the herpes infection. There is such a thing as systemic herpes. But that would be exceedingly rare in a non-immunocompromised person. The best way to fend off an outbreak is to get good sleep eat well and exercise. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

To avoid this, always keep clean clothing between your baby and any affected area of skin. Thoroughly wash your hands after using the toilet or touching a sore, and wash your hands and lay a clean towel on your lap before holding your baby. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
