    Hi Everyone,

    I have a 2 week old and my anxiety levels have been through the roof thinking I’m going to pass the virus on to my baby. I have hsv2 and mainly only have outbreaks on my genitals but also get herpetic whitlows on my hands and fingers. I’ve been on supressive medication since I was 32 weeks pregnant but have still been getting reoccurring symptoms regardless. I haven’t had any full blown outbreaks but I get lots of the tingling, burning and nerve pain all over my body like I’m about to have an outbreak. I’m at the point where I’m constantly stressed about touching or kissing my baby and I’m obsessing over checking my hands and face for blisters. I worry everytime she gets a spot on her. I don’t know what to do anymore and I’m exhausted from feeling this way. What can I do?
