For a few months now I have been sharing towels with my 5 yr old son and 9 month old daughter. I wasn't aware that I shouldn't. A few months ago my 5 yr old son had some kind of cluttered blister type area on his chin. I took him to see his doctor and his doctor didn't know what it was. Well recently my 9 month old daughter has a area on the back of her shoulder that kinda looks like it could be herpes. The bumps dont really look blister like but they are cluttered together...My question is could I have passed my genital herpes on to them by using the same towels after bathing? I am freaking out feeling so horrible. :(
Thank you so much for commenting. She has a doctors appointment tomorrow they didn't have any open for today. :/
Honestly I didn't know sharing towels were bad because i figured we're clean after bathing..? Stupid I know :/
Now she has a little red area on the top of her hand.. and I have a very small red itchy area on the top of my foot. And the bumps on the back of her shoulder aren't red or anything, there's just a few all cluttered together they kinda look blistery now. Can I post pictures on here or maybe send you some?
