Brief Answer: it doesn't affect Detailed Answer: Hello Herpes virus resides only in nerves and comes out under skin in flares when a person is stressed. It usually doesn't involve any organ until a person is severely immuno compromised, such as HIV and herpes co infection. Let me know if you have any other doubts. Thank you
