Can you carry herpes?

Dear Dr. Rob:

Some co-workers of mine were debating the issue of herpes.
One of them believes that everyone carries the strain of
herpes within their body. The other believes that you have
to come into contact with herpes from another source in
order to get it. I am quite confused and don`t know who to
believe, could you help me with this.

Dr Rob’s Response:

Dear Confused in Carolina:

Very good question! You do not “carry” herpes; you
“contract” herpes from someone else or something.
