Hello Doctor,

Sorry for asking you one more question, i saw on net that herpes can be transmitted by skin to skin contact, the lady touched me with her palm on my back while applying lotion, may be for like 30 sec to 1 minute, is this consider skin to skin contact, do i need to do any std tests . I have not done any sexual contact or she did any, also does the std virus survive in lotion and can be transmitted ?

thanks for your help in advance.


Thanks,
XXXXXXX

Brief Answer:
Yes but with wounds or abrasions.

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thank you for follow up query.
Yes herpes can be transmitted through skin to skin contact, If there are active lesions in the partner hand and abrasions/ wounds/ulcers in the recipient skin.I do not think of it as a possibility here.Moreover no sexual contact.
Many organisms cause STD but they do not usually transmit through the lotions as thought by you.Some may survive outside the body for few minutes.
Do you think they have put purposefully in lotions it is unlikely
So please forget the episode and concentrate on your works and lead a happy safe life.
Please allay all anxiety and lead a safe happy life
You can get back to me for any clarifications else please close the discussion and rate.
Wish you good health
Thank you
