Thanks Terri. It does consume a lot of my thinking although I feel I’m relaxing a bit. Part of my concern is that I feel like my own mother is careless about not passing it on to my daughter. The other day she used her serviette to wipe my daughters face. And the next day my mother broke out in cold sores. Is this likely to be a possible mode of transmission or does there need to be an active open sore? She is abiding my the no kissing rule. Do fry serviettes pose the same risk as warm towels ?
