Can Genital Herpes Spread in the Body? polyDNA Surveys the Public Knowledge

He is currently self-employed as a Microbiologist Consultant.

This means that it is normal for herpes outbreaks to sometimes jump around the general area, even by several inches, and that a person can potentially spread herpes from their genitals to other body parts.

However, this is rare.

In a study using a central Kentucky medical center population over a six year period, “HSV-2 was isolated from only 9.4% of patients with nongenital HSV for the entire 6-year period.” (2)

Thus, while spreading HSV-2 to multiple body locations is rare, it can happen.

Mike Evans, from the Center for the Biology of Chronic Disease (CBCD) said, “Many people are completely horrified when they get a diagnosis of herpes infection. That’s despite the fact that the CDC says that mos
