Natural hot springs — risk of herpes transmission?

Recommended Posts

I posted this question somewhere else but I wanted a second opinion, thank you so much.


I understand herpes cannot be transmitted through swimming pools, bathtubs, and hot tubs. But what about natural hot spring waters that do not use any chlorine or disinfectant? What if the water is close to body temperature (95-100 F)? What if I had a small cut on my body? Does any of that increase the risk?


I just lost all my trust in the hot springs operator because of the sign they posted saying that they do not use disinfectant in the water, and that the water is not regulated by the county. I'm feeling anxious and therefore am sensitive down there (itchy pubic hair, burning sensation on the butt, slight pain when urinating).
