Possibility of contracting HERPES from sucking breasts.

Resolved Question:

Hi my question is in regards to the possibility of contracting herpes or any other std/sti from sucking the breast/nipple of a possibly infected person.

Today I hooked up with a girl I've been talking to. I sucked on her beast/nipples and I also allowed her to give me a hand job until I climaxed. She wore a glove during most of the manual stimulation. She only removed my penis from my pants with her bare hands. I've recently heard a rumor that she may have genital herpes. The thing that I'm really concerned about is whether I'm at risk of contracting herpes or any other std/sti from these activities ie sucking her breast/nipples and the hand job. I've scheduled an appointment with my primary physician but the appointment isn't until Monday. Thank you for your reply.

Thank you for your query at
I understand your concern.
The good thing is that you did not kiss her or have sex with her, and hence you're safe from contracting her disease in case she does have it. Genital Herpes either caused by HSV-1 or HSV-2 can only be transmitted by intercourse or direct genitalia contact in case there are active lesions. Sucking breast/nipples are not going to spread the disease because the source of infection in case of herpes is limited to either the oral cavity or the genitalia.
So please do not worry.
Let me know if i can assist you further,

Thank you so much for your response.My mind is at ease. I just have another question. Am I at any risk from her romoving my penis with her bare hands? Also would you recommend me going to the schdueled appointment with my primary physician Monday? Thank you once again Dr Deepu Sebin Sebastian

I am glad i could relieve you of unnecessary stress.
No there is no risk if she touched your penis with her bare hands.
I don't think its necessary to get a visit at this moment.
If you have any symptoms, you can put that up here and i will be able to guide you further,
