My adopted son is 17 (18 in a few months). We found out about 6 months ago he has herpes. We were told that he's contagious when he's having an outbreak and have tried to get him to be more careful. He touches his siblings (who freak out), picks his nails and spits it on the floor, picks his nose and wipes it on the floor etc etc; mostly during an outbreak. It's like he's intentionally trying to give it to others in the house. His bio father (my husband) chooses to ignore it and doesn't help press the fact he has to be more clean. I'm at a loss. I want him to move out when he's 18. I'm really starting to hate him and that makes me sick to my stomach. I just don't know how to get him to stop being so dangerous and nasty.
