Definitely get a new doctor if you aren't happy with the one you have!

Also, just be sure to wash your hands with soap and warm water as normal and things should be fine.

Data suggests that regular hand washing effectively kills the herpes virus, and it doesn't live outside a host for long at all. A matter of minutes, I think.

The stress and the fear of the diagnosis compounded by caring for a young child seems to be building up a bit. If you find yourself really struggling with those thoughts, consider posting in the "herpes buddies" thread and see if there is anyone else who has raised a child while dealing with this kind of situation.

Data shows it is entirely possible not to transmit.
