Your questions are not annoying – that’s what I’m doing here!
Viral shedding only occurs from the genital area – not the thick skin of the thighs, buttocks or abdomen.
Most people don’t actually get sores inside their vagina, they get them on the labia or around the anus, but shedding can also occur from the cervix, which you cannot see. But remember that HSV 1 infection genitally recurs infrequently and sheds infrequently. And when you add suppression, that number goes even lower. I think the risk is really low. And your children are definitely not at any risk from you.
