Had sexual activity via hand and penis of partner who gets genital herpes. Then changed baby's nappy forgetting to wash hands. Will my baby catch it?

Had sexual activity via hand and penis of partner who gets genital herpes. Then changed baby's nappy forgetting to wash hands. Will my baby catch it?

No: Herpes spreads by skin-to-skin direct contact, ie, directly from the site of infection to the site of contact. Cloth, etc in-between interrupts it as does air/time. Stil, hand-washing after sex is a good idea as is pre/post baby diaper contact but don't obsess on it. Why unprotected sex? Are you trying to conceive again - so soon? Are you trying to get an STD? Protection is important. Take care! ...Read more

Any touch on penis head including clothes causes major tingling. Tests for gonorrhea and chlamydia negative. Rapid premature ejaculation. Thoughts?

May be okay...: You're probably okay besides oversensitivity of glans penis which is understandably related with premature ejaculation (pe). To improve pe, take on behavioral modification, apply thin topical anesthetic cream 20-30 minutes before coitus, or add using ssri timely. Detailing? See doc. ...Read more

If someone has herpes on their hand. Herpes whitlow. And shakes your hand. No visible cuts on your hand. But are dry. Odds contracting herpes that w?

If someone has herpes on their hand.  Herpes whitlow. And shakes your hand. No visible cuts on your hand. But are dry. Odds contracting herpes that w?

Almost zero chance: Unless the whitlow is open and weeping, there is little if any infection risk. I have never heard of herpes being transmitted by shaking hands. However, it is important that people with herpes whitlow not allow the infected finger come in contact with other persons' eyes, mouth, or genital area, e.g. during sex or foreplay. ...Read more

Can you get genital herpes from touching handles and other things in public places/public restrooms and then touching genitals?

Can you get genital herpes from touching handles and other things in public places/public restrooms and then touching genitals?

No risk, no worries: The herpes virus is harder to transmit than this. Infection requires exposure to fairly large amounts of virus that usually have to be massaged into the exposed area. That's why new genital herpes almost always shows up at sites of maximum friction duribg sex. There is no risk at all of catching herpes from a contaminated environment, either public toilet or anywhere esle. ...Read more

I helped a homeless man move personal items with papercuts on my hands. Any noticeable or unnoticeable disease risk? Hands might have touched his hand

I helped a homeless man move personal items with papercuts on my hands. Any noticeable or unnoticeable disease risk? Hands might have touched his hand

This is something: I wouldn't spend another second worrying about. The risk of things you might be worried about--HIV, hepatitis--can not be transmitted that way. Scabies, and other skin diseases, might be transmitted by skin but not just a touch of a hand. Please don't let unfounded fear keep you from doing humane, kind things in the future. Thank you. Bless you:) ...Read more

I play clarinet and piano and suffer from hand and wrist issues. Playing for even 15 minutes causes pain in wrist (and thumb for clarinet) thoughts?

Tendinitis : With your history , age and location of pain ( wrist and thumb) the most likely diagnosis is tendinitis ( specifically deQuervain's tendinitis).This is the most common tendinitis of the hand and involves the thumb extensor tendon.A physical exam by an ORS would confirm. Ibuprofen, bracing, ice massage and rest usually help. A well- placed injection can be helpful . Best of Luck! ...Read more
