    Herpes is caused by the herpes simplex virus. There are 8 different herpes simplex viruses, the most common are herpes simplex virus 1 and 2.

    Herpes simplex virus 1 is usually responsible for cold sores, but can also cause genital herpes.

    Herpes simplex virus 2 is usually responsible for genital herpes, but can also cause cold sores.

    Herpes can NOT be spread by using a toilet seat after someone, using a shower or tub after them, using a chair after them, a pool, jacuzzi, etc.

    Herpes is almost always spread by sex (vaginal, oral, and anal) or by DIRECT skin to skin contact with an infected area.

    My friend have had herpes for over 6 years now. She lived with their parents and brothers most of those 6 years. She contracted the virus when she was 17. NONE of their family members & even I, ever got genital herpes from her by using something after her like the toilet or shower. It's just not spread that way.

    Take care!
