How does the hsv virus spread to your nose or your eyes?
I have had hsv 1 and 2 for almost 20 yrs. but just recently started getting outbreaks in my nose and one of my eyes. I'm not sure if maybe I touched my mouth and then my eye or if it just got in there on its own?
I definitely inadvertently autoinoculated /spread the virus from my genital area, - to my mouth, by mistake when I was in the shower.
And then another time, when I was taking off make-up, I believe I transferred it to my eye (from my mouth).
So I don't think it's unheard of, by any means.
