Can you give this to coworkers or friends through normal day to day interactions?
How do I keep the children in my life safe?
Don’t kiss them on the mouth when you have a cold sore
Both of my grandmothers have had cold sores my whole life. Is it possible I have had this infection my whole life and didn’t know it?
I know this is an STI. But can you pass this through day to day interacts with coworkers or friends?
Your HSV is likely only oral. There is no reason to think you have this in both locations without lesions that are swab test positive for HSV 1
I have read that GHSV has a 5 percent shedding and OHSV has 25 percent. Does daily antivirals decrease this? How much do you know?
People with very frequently recurring cold sores shed virus on about 25% of days Antivirals decrease this yes.
Should I be more concerned with sexual partner and not so much daily interactions with people I care about?
I’m sorry if any of the questions seem Ignorant. I am going to start daily antivirals just for my sanity.
No ignorant questions here!
