Probably Not

Thank you for taking the time to submit your question. Hopefully I can help.

I have to disclose that I'm not a doctor but I have studied extensively the effects of the virus. But understand we are learning more and more about it as each year passes.

The HSV virus needs certain conditions to be present in the body in order for it to survive. And even when the virus is spread outside of the body it can only live for a very short period of time.

To answer your question directly is it's highly unlikely that this is a condition where the virus could survive. I do it all of the time and have never had an outbreak in any other body parts than where my outbreaks normally appear.
