A woman giving a hand job is no risk. Same for the man pleasing a woman with his hands. Now a man is at a very very very slight risk of herpes whitlow of the finger. This is very rare and I wouldn't be concerned over it at all.

Thank you for the reply.  Are you sure this is nothing to be too concerned about ?
Another question Feelingundone  -  should the women have an outbreak to transfer herpes from her hands ?

I am positive this is nothing to worry about. She won't transmit hsv to you penis with her hand. Even if she touched herself first. Now if you asking if whitlow needs an outbreak to spread the virus. Yes. Like I said you can go get 100,000 handjob and my mind won't be changed on your risk.

There is something else i wanna ask you Feelingundone.  A month ago i got small dots or blister like stuff on my penis. But it wasnt paining  . No flue and no aches at all . But it was itching around the penis . One red spot was broken like and skin peeled out and the surrounding red . There was no pain in urination.  When i went to the doctor she said its a fungus and gave antibiotics and two creams one which is called  " daktacort and the other candid " . Once i started taking the cream and antibiotics the red spots  ( actually 1 or 2 were there ) went away . And the itching died away as well . I did hiv and a venerail test as well  and everything came negative.  The doctor said its a yeast infection.  Are the above mentioned symptoms related to yeast infection and fungus ? Cause there was no pain no aces no flue or no when urinating and no pain from the foreskin . Just itching around the genitals . Iam curious to know Feelingundone?
