Can Herpes be spread by blood to blood contact?

Dear Dr. Tom:

Can Herpes be spread by blood to blood contact?

Dr. Tom’s Response:

Dear Anonymous:

Herpes infections are not among those we classify as blood-borne diseases. I do not know of such a blood-borne transmission, but that does not mean none exist out there in the medical literature. If any exist, they are rare, so that would infer the risk to be minimal. If any come to my attention, I will put it into future communications.
