How can genital herpes be spread?

Herpes can only be passed when the contagious area comes into direct skin-to-skin contact with a mucous membrane or a break in the skin. In many instances, the location of the occurrences will stay in the same area time after time, so if that location is covered by a condom, the chances of spreading the virus are much less. However, some people’s herpes locations are in areas that a condom cannot cover.
