I got diagnosed with herpes a little over two years ago. I have genital herpes but hsv1. After my first outbreak and first few months of turmoil, the condition has been fairly benign. I dont even know now if I have an outbreak, its usually just one pimple that comes and goes every six months. My parents are old and have a host of health issues. They stayed with me last year for a few months but nothing happened. This year I visited them for only two weeks. I did think I might have had an outbreak. I am not completely sure. For the past week my dad started complaining about a sore on his lip. Its been 2 weeks and he still has it. Its just there, it does not really itch or scab but its right there on top of his lip. I am terrified that I might have somehow passed it to him. I dont know if it was towels or I forgot to clean my hands or what was it. The doc has sent him for blood test. I wont be able to live with the guilt that I might have spread it to him. Could I have spread it to him?
