Probably not: In general, transmission of herpes virus requires direct contact of an infected surface with a susceptible one, usually with rubbing to massage the virus into the tissues. Urine is an unlikely source of infection. But I would advise you to not press your luck with intentional urine exposure, especially to the eyes (e.g. "golden shower"). ...Read more
Very unlikely: Transfer of HSV infection to another part of the body (auto-inoculation) sometimes occurs during the first few weeks after catching the virus. Once someone has had genital or oral herpes more than 2-3 months, auto-inoculation is very rare. Use common sense hygiene, i.e. wash hands after toilet, and limit hand contact with face/eyes during genital herpes outbreaks. Otherwise no worries about it. ...Read more

Probably not: Transfer of an HSV infection from the area first involved to another area is called auto-inoculation. It sometimes occurs during the first infection, i.e. within several weeks of catching the virus. After that, the immune system prevents auto-inoculation. If someone has had genital or oral herpes more than a few months, it is very unlikely s/he will ever self infect other places on the body. ...Read more
