My son has herpes on his junk but he thinks he can spread it

This answer was rated:

my son has herpes on his junk but he thinks he can spread it to his nose and eys or thinks he just did cuz his eyes are burning and nose looks like the other stuff he has but i read that is impossible.
Doctor DanB : Hello and thanks for your question. Are you available to chat?
Doctor DanB : While it is quite unlikely that there was transmission of herpes virus from the genital region to the eye, it is not impossible. This had happened before but is usually quite uncommon. If he's having symptoms in his eyes then he would do best to see an ophthalmologist to rule out a herpes infection in the eyes. Does that make sense?

my son is very stubborn and wont see a dr thinks its to embarrassing to go or get onto anything. his girlfriend gave it to him and he is very upset and when she left he tried to kill himself and still this whole thing is overwhelming for him. Since he is over 23 not much we can do i had him in a mental hospital but they let him go cuz he is a very smart person can talk his way out of anything. i ordered him that red marine algae hopeing he will take it and see some kind of future. Again thank you i just dont know how to educate him on this when he wont even believe a doctor or anyone.
