On call: Herpes gladiatorum
Q. My wife doesn't want our son to go out for the wrestling team because she's worried he might catch herpes. I thought herpes was contracted from a very different contact sport. Please enlighten us.
A. It's always nice to be able to resolve a marital conflict by telling husband and wife that they are both right. In this case, the reason for the tie score is that there are two types of herpes simplex virus (HSV).
