Dr. Rick :

Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.

Dr. Rick :

Many things can cause a red spot and a blister on your nose, not just herpes. The cannula that was used during your procedure would have been a sterile, single use item so there is no risk of cross infection there.

Dr. Rick :

If you want to use the gloves that is fine, but as you may already know, just because you have genital herpes doesn't mean that you are able to infect everyone you come close to, that you cook for or that you have normal social interactions.

Dr. Rick :

Also, as we discussed on the last thread the herpes virus that usually infects the eye is a completely different strain then the one that people tend to get in their genital area.

Dr. Rick :

Rosacea can cause red spots on your nose and, sometimes, small blisters. If you haven't already showed this to your dermatologist I'd point it out to her on your next visit.

Dr. Rick :

Like we discussed about your sisters who are suffering from cancer, you do not have to worry that this ocular condition will spread to your husband.

Dr. Rick :

Do you have any questions about this?

Customer:

yes, what can we use so when we have sexual relations we can be more confortable. I have read so much on the internet about this spreading during intercorse to the partner on his nose and eyes. We are both lost and we have been maried for 37 years. Should I be afraid that we should not have intercorse?

Dr. Rick :

As an eye doctor, I must confess, I'm not asked this question very often :o) however condom use should prevent cross infection. You can also take meds to suppress virus shedding.......this is a great issue to bring up during your next OB/GYN appointment.

Dr. Rick :

Here is a good web page that talks about this issue:
