Anyone w/genital herpes and married or dating an uninfected person ?

Anyone w/ genital herpes and married or dating an uninfected person? I was wondering because I ve seen alot of answers saying there are people who have Genital Herpes and are married and there husbands/wife dont have it? How are the chances reduced?

Hi... Genital herpes can be controlled with healthy sexual habbits, like the use of condom during sexual activity. And also there are anti viral medications available which  can help prevent the  spread of infection to the sexual partners.  The chances of spread of genital herpes is reduced with the use of antiviral medications....

I have what look like sores,ingrown hairs on my pelvic area. They re about two inches above my penis. They do not hurt or itch and they have been scaling a bit. They do not seem to get any better or worse and I ve had them over two weeks. They appeared the night after sexual contact. Is this Genital Herpes? I can t find any pictures that looks like what I have. I have made a Doctor s Appointment, but I want to be prepared for what the results will be.

Good Morning Doctor I am 65 years old man And I have genitala herpes What I know is that this infection is not curable. I hadn t very severe outbreaks. The last very small outbreak was 3 years ago. I am Single person on pension now still sexually active. Since I got this virus more than 20 years I had sexual intercourse being fully aware of the consequences for the other person. Now I am alone and met someone to spend rest of my life together. The other person is a younger lady who wants have child with me. I read about this virus all information that is available in internet. Some information is very helpful and pretty clear for me. The worst distressing massage is that this virus can be transmitted without outbreak, without genital blisters. I would be very grateful for your opinion in this regard. Yours Faithfully Wes Glebocki

My 80 year old father has a chronic skin condition - a rash which flares up every evening.....causing a great deal of pain. Heis being treated for eczma but we think it may be something linked to nervous system. Last week he described the pain over both knees as like being covered in bees. He has had bypass surgery so takes some medication. He is well in himself except for this rash which is causing a lot of distress. He had shingles several years ago so I thought it might be related. We are looking for a diagnosis so he can start to get better. Thankyou

hi I have a question, my husband has a rash on the back of his neck that just started out real small... he thought it was a pimple at 1st, he scratched it and he said it kinda stung a little and was sore right at 1st, well he didnt think much of it then the following day he ended up getting more spots and he said that they oozed out with stuff when he went to scratch them or rub them.. hes never had this before... we are wondering if it could be shingles or possibly something else that might be contagious.. nobody else has this in our household except for him... we arent sure what it is
