I decided I have a few more questions and I purchased three more questions.
1)Yes, I did have toilet paper between. I have realized lately that in wiping sometimes the urine seeps through the toilet paper and I can feel it seep through on my finger tips meaning my fingers got contaminated and who knows when I threw the toilet paper out if I perhaps touched the part that touched my skin. So, from what you say if I would have used my hand to wipe myself without toilet paper there wouldn’t be enough virus. I guess that surprises me and this is why. Dentists get herpetic whitlow. Why? It’s not like they are creating friction with the sore. So, it doesn’t seem friction is always necessary. It seems they accidently touch an infected area then they have herpetic whitlow. It doesn’t seem like that would be much virus either. I guess I am trying to understand why it wouldn’t be enough virus if it seeped through the toilet paper or I accidentally touched the part of the toilet paper that wiped my skin?
2)Then I have a follow up question about not shedding from intact hand skin. So you are saying, if I had herpetic whitlow but had intact skin, then I would never shed from my hands? But if I had a cut on my hand, then I could shed from my hand if I had herpetic whitlow?
3)Now if my outbreak is on my genitals or by chance my mouth. I would only shed from those places, right? I guess I want to know if my outbreak is in one of those places, and I do have a cut on my hand, I won’t shed from my hand because that is not where my outbreak is from, is that right?
Thank you again for everything.
