Can u donate blood if you have herpes?


In general, if you have herpes, you should not donate blood until you have fully recovered from any symptoms and are not experiencing an active outbreak. This is because herpes is a viral infection that can be transmitted through blood transfusions.

However, it is important to note that each blood donation center may have its own specific guidelines and policies regarding donation eligibility, so it is always best to check with your local donation center for their specific requirements. They may also ask you additional questions about your medical history and current health status to determine if you are eligible to donate.

Your feedback is important to us.
