I have a couple more questions about the lesion on my lip.
* I know the fact that it developed a yellow crust makes it very likely to be a cold sore, but I was wondering if it could have been impetigo from me messing with it. Does impetigo only cause one spot ot does it usually spread around the face? Although, I think I might have had this lesion pop up on the same spot on my lip before as a teenager, but can’t be 100% sure.
* When I had the lesion on my lip, I had given my wife a kiss without thinking and she still didn’t end up getting it. If it was a cold sore could it have maybe been healing and didn’t have enough virus to infect her?
*Does contact with a lesion or shedding virus always in in transmission?
*IF my infection is genital is it possible that when I am shedding and that fact that I’ve had it for so long and the fact that HSV! doesn’t like to be in the genitals, could that mean that even though I am shedding, that I am shedding very little virus? Like even though I am shedding it wouldn’t be enough to infect someone?
