Hi, first of all what was your exposure?
Protected oral and vaginal sex with an escort. I also fingered her but with the hand that does not have the lesion.
Not much is known about whitlow transmission and studies are scarce. I believe the last one was in 1983. What is known is that is needs direct contact with a herpes sore to be at risk and there needs to be an opening in the skin for the virus to enter.
Since the hand in question did not make contact it would not be herpes related.
Ok cool thanks. I was worried that I might have it but not show symptoms (I am going to get tested in a few weeks btw) and I touched my genitals with the cut and that's how I got it. But I don't have a sore on my genitals so it must just be an infection of a different kind right?
