Chances of having Ocular Herpes?

Recommended Posts

I was diagnosed with HSV1 in May by the IGG ELISA with an index value of 3.87. This past Friday while washing up, I used a bowel filled with soap and water to wash my genitals. When I went to turn on the faucet the pressure from the water coming out of it caused the water from the bowel to splash into my left eye. If I have HSV1 on my genitals (I believe it’s just oral but I have never had a cold sore nor a bump on my genitalia) could the water and soap getting into my eye cause ocular herpes?

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Zero chance... from everything I have read, it has to be skin to skin contact. The virus would be so diluted in water, plus you had soap in there. AND, you don't know if it is genital, have no outbreak, and HSV1 sheds very little to begin with. There is really no possibility you will get ocular herpes from this.
