The herpes virus can be shed from an infected person even when there are no lesions visible. Some may wish to take the daily prophylactic oral drug Valtrex (an antiviral oral medication) to help cut down on shedding.
Herpes can also be transmitted on any skin: fingers, lips, etc.
But even when using a condom, the virus can still be passed to a partner from uncovered skin.
