If you touch an active lesion it will transmit it and once infected you would have to endure the 6 months to 5 years of infection. You are considered non infectious, one year after the last lesion has healed.
The point of initial contact will determine where the initial lesions will form. As it is viral, I have no idea what I would do; you can't take an antibiotic. I never new something so cruel was so common.
