My boyfriend contracted P.O. 5 or 6 days ago and we've been apart since. He said new spots are still appearing and he's bleeding (blisters breaking?). Our question: When is it safe for us to hang out together? Can we safely be intimate? I read on this website that the oils can linger and still spread the rash. Is that still true after all this time? We are supposed to see each other Friday (today being Wed.). Pls help! I want to know if I'm safe. Thank you.
