HSV from mutual masturbation

Is it possible to get HSV2 from a girl who was shedding, touched themselves, and then touched penis?  Swollen lymph nodes under armpits occurred 4 days after. No other symptoms.

You are safe from herpes from the exposer you describe. The swollen or perceived swollen lymph nodes under your arm pit are not an indication of a genital outbreak.

Thanks.  That was my thinking as well but then I read an article on Buoy Health that said sometimes swollen lymph nodes under the arm could be the only sign or symptom.  Have you ever heard of that being the only sign from anyone?
No, that wouldn't be the only sign. If your nodes are swollen, that could be from many, many things. If they linger, get it checked by a doctor.
