Nice post. this very virus is the cause of whitlow, as you all know its very stubborn to treat, the only language it understand is heat before it get 'full blown' I recently wrote an article about how you can manage it locally using locally available materials here www.healthquorum.com/index/posts/how-to-treat-whitlow-locally/
most people dont know they have it and of the ways you will know if you got herpes simplex2 is if you dip any of your fingers in your mouth especially when you have mouth sore Is if whitlow attack your finger.
