Is Discharge a Herpes Symptom?

Dear Dr. Tom:

Does one have a discharge when you have
the herpes symptom?

Dr. Tom’s Response:

Dear Poster Who Asks About a Discharge:

No, a person does not discharge from herpes
infection itself.

One can have a discharge from a penile
ejaculation when the owner is infected from herpes. However, this has
nothing to do with the herpes. The discharge is a normal physiologic
function. Likewise, vaginal fluid is capable of emission during sex
play as well as during orgasm. In either case, the fluid then may be
capable of transmitting the disease. Discharges from the human body
that may transmit herpetic infection are saliva and sweat as well.
Thereby, herpes can be either physical or insidious.
