Can you catch genital herpes from urine?

Can you catch genital herpes from urine?

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

The blood is first filtered by the kidneys, and the composition of the resulting fluid is then altered depending on the body's needs.

Could you get infected with your own genital herpes on the face with urine?

Could you get infected with your own genital herpes on the face with urine?

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

I have genital herpes. First outbreak was lengthy but after six months of getting this virus I am feeling less & some time cloudy urine. Why is that?

I have genital herpes. First outbreak was lengthy but after six months of getting this virus I am feeling less & some time cloudy urine. Why is that?

Genital herpes: Cloudy urine isn't usually a symptom of genital herpes. The urine could be cloudy for other reasons — hydration, bladder infection, foods and medicines you take. The first outbreak of herpes, though, usually is the worst, and if you were treated with antivirals it should decrease number and severity of outbreaks. ...Read more

If you have genital herpes and you go to take a pee and a little drop of urine lands on your upper lip, will you get infected?

If you have genital herpes and you go to take a pee and a little drop of urine lands on your upper lip, will you get infected?

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

Sometime : Sometime a yeast infection can affect a man's penis. If it is present it can cause raw denuded area of pain, irritation, and often times itching. You can try an over the counter cream like Clotrimazole twice a day for a few weeks. If this does not work ask your doctor for a dditional work up or referral to a urologist, especially since it sounds like you have some prostate issues as well.
All the best. ...Read more

I'm having my first outbreak of genital herpes and was wondering if neosporin is okay to put on it and what else could help with burning/stinging pain?

I'm having my first outbreak of genital herpes and was wondering if neosporin is okay to put on it and what else could help with burning/stinging pain?

Neosporin won't work: Herpes is a viral infection and will not respond to Neosporin. If you are certain it is herpes, you should see your physician. Since this is your primary infection your doctor will probably have you take an anti-viral like Acyclovir or Valacyclovir.
Take some Ibuprofen for the pain and have your physician check you. ...Read more
