No that won't happen as HSV is transmitted by skin to skin contact.

Relax!

If you have a facial cold sore You can hug and shake hands too. It's skin to skin contact 

Take care

There are no studies definitively proving each way it can possibly spread.  I dont share cups or straws w my kids.  For hsv2, they recommend not sharing sex toys.  I would kiss the kid on forehead/cheek.  That's me, though....

There no sore on my mouth but on my forehead got sores. But i keep clean and rub with alcohol swab to ensure the virus does not spread. 

 

I really hope to understand more of this virus. I feel its the end of the world to me.

What you need to do is ensure that those sores on your head is actually oral herpes or a form of herpes.  Have you had the blisters tested and have you been diagnosed with oral herpes.  I assume so but I just want to check.  It's important to understand how this virus works.  That's been you need to keep a healthy immune system which means eat well sleep well and no stress.  If you are constantly getting sores on your forehead I suggest you look at your diet and maybe look at some supplements as well or go on antivirals if you are that concerned about it

      Boil is my guess too, but if you have concerns then please attend your doctor. If you have been having sex with partner(s) whose STD status you do not know then please consider an STD panel that includes at least HIV, Hep A/B/C, gon, syph, chlam, trich, HSV 1/2.

      I remember trying to look into this some time ago but best I could come up with was that the chance was say in the range of 1-10% for the sexual episode. Obviously the nature of the outbreak, its positioning etc. all plays a role. You suggest this is HSV-2 with a diagnosis over 12 years ago? Have you checked the type with a blood test? May be a chance it is HSV-1 that your husband may already have for example. Agree that antivirals have no preventative properties, only benefit is taking the edge of the impact of an initial infection if this occurs (which as mentioned is still the realms of quite unlikely). Having HSV-1 does not provide any protection from HSV-2 so the figures show. Interestingly the other way around there is almost complete immunity, that is, people with an established HSV-2 infection are much less likely to be infected with HSV-1.

      You are more at risk when there is an outbreak so it is possible but as the other person said he may already have it anyway because if you have been in a relationship with him and having sex over a frequent period it is more likely that he would have it according to the experts.  And if he takes an antiviral straight away it does not stop him from getting it I'm not sure what the above person was referring to there

      If a person tells you that their partner has been tested and is negative then you can take that as a yes it can help. No symptoms does not mean not infected. Meds and condims reduce to 1%.

      Yes!!!  If antivirals stopped us from being contagious we would all be celebrating naked in Times Square.

      It is still possible to pass the virus while on antivirals.
