Using someone else's razor is such a temptation but it is a bad idea on a couple of levels. In this age of MRSA reistant bacteria - it would be easy to nick your skin and get a serious skin infection that could then turn into a life threatening infection. From a herpes perspective I suppose there is a very very low risk of hereps transmission though I have never seen a documented case - it is just such a bad idea on so many levels - don't share!!
right before in was infected my ex used his shaver to shave me, we dont know how I was infected with herpes. HE thinks that my deceased husband gave it to me. My ex and I were together almost two yrs when i was infected and he was my only partner.Its hard to have a sexual relationship due to the spread of herpes to another or leaving due to the infection. It has effected my life.
Actually, it is almost impossible to get herpes from using other peoples razors. The point is that herpes virus is very fragile and does not live on surfaces for a long time. So, this type of herpes transmission is from the myths list staying along with toilet seats, cigaretts, glasses, and so on. Read more about std myths here http://stidatingclub.com/
