Question 1: My mom had a cold sore on her lip for 2.5 weeks. She said it healed, I examined her. There is a red/pink mark (stain) on the area where the cold sore was present. Is she still contagious?
Question 2: After 2.5 weeks of the cold sore on my moms lip, she kissed/fast peck my fore head (where the red/pink mark/stain was present). Can
She transmit the virus that way to me? What are the chances?
Question 3: Can you catch HSV from handshaking with people with sweaty hands? I washed my hands right away.
Question 4: Where can you not get the virus (to make things shorter)
Question 5: I shared a skinny thin straw with a friend. She never had a outbreak in her life. Can I catch it that way? It wasn’t direct sip to sip.
