I’m finally getting over the fear of transmission to my child. Did you say correctly in the visit that you have never heard of a case where a parent could transmit hav by scratching themselves and then changing a diaper and applying lotion?
I did say that, most assuredly
For my own cbt efforts should I be telling myself that there is no possible way I could infect my child? I have a daughter and I know a lot goes on down there so I don’t want to live my life freaking out every time she has something going on down there.
Yes, you should be telling yourself there is no way you are going to infect your child.
1. If there is no concern about passing it to a child in some way, how come people can auto-inoculate themselves?
When someone has new herpes, they might not yet be aware that they have herpes and touch a lesion and touch some other vulnerable part of their body. But truly, autoinoculation is rare.
2. My daughter has had two red dots on her butt that have been freaking me out. They looked like dots that were blood red, and open. Very small. The reason it freaked me out is because they were there one week and then healed after a bit, and then within a week came back. Her doctor said she thought they were papilla because when she pressed them they turned white which she indicated meant that they weren’t deep. If this were HSV would not open sores be painful? She hasn’t had any pain or itching. I was just freaking out because they came back.
Sounds nothing like herpes to me
