Thank you for your query at
I understand your concerns.
But from mere touching of the genital area with finger has practically no chance of getting any STIs.
So, please do not worry.
Feel free to discuss further,

Patient replied :

No chance of herpes even if she licked her fingers before hand?
thanks for your quick repsonse!

Expert:  Dr. Deepu Sebin Sebastian replied 3 Days.

No, only if she had open herpes lesions which she came in contact with during licking, there is probably a 0.5 % chance of spreading the infection.
So, you can ignore it.

Patient replied :

Are you saying there is only a .5% chance even if she came in contact with a lesion? or a .5% chance in general. Again, I do not know if she even had a disease.

Expert:  Dr. Deepu Sebin Sebastian replied 2 Days.

I meant 0.5 % chance in general, from your exposure, it is extremely unlikely to contract any STI, so do not worry.
