Thank you Terri. I paid for more questions. This information has helped me a lot. My next question is: You said it was almost unheard of to pass it on to my hands since I have good immunity. Since there is that small chance and if I did pass it to my hands in this past month, would I have already had symptoms on my hands? Besides the picture I sent you, which you said does not look like herpetic whitlow, would the symptoms have started already on my hands from this last month of touching discharge? I know the outbreak is most contagious if there are lesions. Until I get my anxiety and OCD under control I just would like some reassurance. I also accidently touched my underwear part that touches my genitals with the top of my hand yesterday. Washed them really well immediately. Could it be passed by touching that part of your underwear? Is that a risk? It has been very difficult to get past this. I am trying really hard. I really appreciate your help. You have been wonderful.
