    If you have HSV 2 genitally then all symptoms should be in your genital area as the virus is found in the nerve endings of the genital area. Very rarely some people wil get it on thier hands and this is called Hereps Whitlow. The next time you get an issue on your hands go and be seen and get the area swabbed/cultured/typed to find out if this is what you have. This must be done within 48 hours of when you first notice this for best results. Go to the top of this board and search that in the window to see if can find more posts of same type. It is not very common but does happen.
