Can You get Herpes Without Having Sex

Patient: Could you get herpes without have sex

 

 

Doctor: Herpes can be transmitted by genital contact and without having intercourse, just by skin to skin contact. Transmission can occur from an infected partner who does not have a visible sore and may not know that he or she is infected. I hope I cleared your doubt.
