Herpes Shedding from Thighs/Buttocks during outbreaks
I have a quick question that I think I know the answer to but just wanted to confirmation.  If someone is having an outbreak in the genital area (penis/anal), is he also shedding the virus from thicker skin such as the thighs or buttocks?  My thought is that it wouldn't shed there during an outbreak because the skin is too thick, but I'm not sure.  Thanks for your help!

the skin on the thighs and buttocks is too thick for viral shedding to occur from without an obvious lesion present.
