Recommended Posts

Hello,

I have had herpes for more than 10 years and that has not happened. But i am still afraid, Anyone can have an idea?

What about kissing someone?. I usually wait until the skin is dried but any recommendation here?

Thanks

Ina

You will not transfer the infection to your genitals. There is no need to be afraid. Billions of people have oral HSV-1 on the planet and you will most unlikely to find many if any who have transferred and established infection to their genitals themselves.

Wait until the sore has well healed for your comfort, say 3-4 days after the last of any scab has gone.
