Herpetic whitlow

does having herpetic whitlow mean that my whole body is infected and that i can still pass it on during normal intercourse?

It should just be your finger... only the site will transfer.... put on gloves or something before touching anyone during an outbreak. DON'T TOUCH ANYTHING. Other parts, if they don't break out should be fine.

bbmd obviously though you had been clinically diagnosed, but you haven't been.

You cannot self-diagnose. No reason to think this is herpes whitlow going on. Be seen by a doctor for a proper evaluation.

have you had a blood test done yet?  if not that's the next step for helping with your gf and her issues. the only way to diagnose whitlow - lesion culture.
