toddler herpes

fesiempre - September 28

hi I am so worried,I have genital herpes I know this because I get breakout in my left buttock but last february I accidentally picked up my 18 month old boy against my hip I had a break out in the left buttock and a little pimple around the hip, he wasn't wearing a diaper because it was bath time and I'm concerned because that same week he got a lump with in his left testicle it was swollen and red with little areas of open skin which went away with a foot athlete's cream that his pediatrician had given him for a rash before I didn't feel him having a fever but this past weekend he got another lump in his inner thigh which burnt him when I washed it with soap he didn't have fever and had a rash in the diaper area again the swelling went away with a diaper cream but it left a little scar his pediatrician is telling me not to worry but mean while I am suffering a lot from this, what do you recommend doctor

You don't need the doctor. There is no risk that your son could get genital herpes this way.

Your doctor is right, do not worry. Toddlers get sores in that area all the time. That is what happens when you wear diapers.

sounds to me like you are a sexual predator. Shame on you! You will go to jail if the child gets herpes!

this mother is not a sexual predator! please do not continue to post things like that - this board is not about accusing folks of anything - it's for support and information.

I agree..

When you have ob's on your buttocks - you aren't shedding the virus from your hip.).


euphie - September 29

yes you are most likely shedding the virus from your entire anogenital area too but not from the thick skin on your hip ( where a mother balances a child when carrying them ).

It's very unlikely that you transmitted your hsv2 to your son! It takes more than just actual contact with the virus

virus transmittal takes heat and friction which doesn't happen when just picking your child up to put them in the bath.

I'm right with your pediatrician that it's not likely to be herpes that is causing your son's rashes. Kids are very prone to rashes - especially until they get out of diapers.
