Can OHSV1 also be on the face, chin & lip area?
Can HSV1 spread to someone kissing your body or just spread through saliva?
If someone kisses your body, not your mouth, that is not a risk. Spread through saliva with no actual skin to skin contact would be really unusual
Do people disclose OHSV1 before kissing?
I don’t believe most people do but some surely do
If I haven’t had a breakout on my lips in 8 years, what is percent chance of transmitting by kissing?
Im so sorry, we don’t have that information but I think it would be low
Last, what amount of antiviral do you recommend to reduce chances here?
500 mg valacyclovir daily
