I don't know the answer, but if I were you, I'd always wear those disposable vinyl gloves that food-service workers use, when changing him when you have an outbreak.  This is simply because you NEVER want to have to explain to Children's Protective Services why your kid has genital herpes.  It just looks too much to their jaded eye that it got there for sexual reasons.

Hey, trust your doctor.  I am glad you asked her.

It's great that you asked your doctor,  but I'm curious about the answer.  The virus can't distinguish sexually oriented contact from other contact.  If you are touching your genitals with an open outbreak,  and then pretty quickly without washing your hands you touch your baby's rectum,  it can be passed that way.  That's how children get genital herpes on their lips in the form of oral "cold sores".  That's not sexual contact,  it's hand to mouth contact.  

I agree with AnnieBrooke's thoughts.  If you have an active outbreak and don't wash your hands religiously after contacting your genitals,  it probably would be best to keep a box of surgical gloves on the changing table.
