1 Answer:

Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com


Not only in the genitals, herpes can also attack the eyes. However, the herpes virus that attacks the eye is different from the genital herpes virus, so herpes in the eye is not a sexually transmitted disease.


Herpes disease in the eye is caused by two types of herpes virus, the varicella-zoster virus and herpes simplex virus 1. The varicella-zoster virus is the same as the chickenpox and shingles virus, whereas the herpes simplex 1 virus is the same as the herpes virus which also attacks the mouth.


In general, herpes eye disease is not transmitted through social contact without direct exposure to lesions arising in the eye


So much information from me, hopefully it helps
