It is possible that it is on your finger only, but we simply cannot be certain. This has to be frustrating for you, not knowing for certain if you have it also genitally.
Yes, because oral HSV 2 is so uncommon, we have no data on transmission and acquisition that is correct. There are no studies that I am aware of that address this question at this time.
I would strongly suggest that you have your finger swab tested for HSV the next time this happens. Be certain to ask that the virus be typed IF it is positive for HSV.
If your husband is negative after all these years, it certainly suggests that viral shedding is rare if you do have it genitally.
I am assuming you’ve had other sexual partners than your husband at some point in your life?
