Genital Herpes and Toilet Seats
I have a young woman coming over to my house for dinner on Friday, who has genital herpes.  Is my family at risk of catching this from the toilet seat she will be using?  If she's having an outbreak and a sore came in contact with the toilet seat - I didn't know how long it could sit on the seat and still be contagious.  Please help. Thanks

If that were the case, everyone that's ever used public toilet seats would have herpes.

Poor woman :(  how hurt would she be to know your thoughts on her,and you call her a friend? ...... it really is this type of thing that will keep the stigma of HSV alive and well   ....  
The posts of late are quite ridiculous.

Herpes is a sexually transmitted infection.  That means unless you are having sex with someone it's not a risk to you. this includes toilet seats. The areas the most folks have lesions on when they get a recurrence never come in contact with the toilet seat anyways.
