HSV1 Infection in Different Area

Recommended Posts


Great question! 

Hypothetically yes, but the chances are very low since your body has already built up HSV-1 antibodies. So, if you have GHSV-1, your chances of contracting it anywhere else on the body is very very low.  However, you still should abstain from intimacy with someone if they are having an active outbreak, even if they have the same strain as you.

Now, if you have an autoimmune illness, your chances of infecting yourself with or getting HSV-1 from someone else on another area of the body increase, since autoimmune illnesses reduce the body resistance and ability to protect the body from infection. Also, you still can contract HSV-2. 

So, in summary, for the majority of folks who don't have any autoimmune illnesses, getting the same strain of HSV elsewhere on the body is very very very low!!

I hope this helps!
