assessment on the chance of getting herpes

User Profile
Hi, just came back from a massage parlor. I pretty much had the usual routine of massage with happy ending. The thing is I licked her nipple for several second which she said was sensitive and bled when she showered. Just wanted to have your assessment on the chance of getting herpes if she ever had it on her nipples?

Hello and Welcome

I appreciate your concern

Yes there is a possibility. Clinical evaluation is most of the times enough to diagnose HSV
DNA -- or PCR -- tests and virus cultures can be used for confirmation

wishing you best of health
