My question is about genital herpes Both my boyfriend and

Patient: My question is about genital herpes. Both my boyfriend and myself have it and we had sex and then washed our hands afterwards but im kind of a germaphobe and I feel like he didn’t wash his hands good enough. Anyway after we did that, my boyfriend gave our 6 week old daughter her pacifier. Basically I just want to know if our daughter can get herpes from his hands even though he washed them before giving her the pacifier.
