Is Eczema Herpeticum herpes or eczema or both?

Recommended Posts

I am looking at lots of sites and I am tired so thought I would post.....


I have eczema, may have eczema herpeticum (positive hsv1 blood test)...I dunno...just wondered is eczema herpeticum contagious that is, I know it is aggrevated by hsv1 but are they then contagious hsv1 breakouts?

All that it is (as far as I understand it) is that the eczema creates a compromised area of skin where there are often cracks or thinner skin under the plaques that makes it easier for H to get in ...


Herpes is contagious wherever it is ... most EH is in other areas of the body and as long as it's not flaring up it's very unlikely to be shedding very much ... but in the genital area I would guess/assume it's just as contagious as "regular" Genital HSV1 in that area.
