So this girl i met, lol blah, us kissed. After ~ checking she instagram, I see a picture from about 2 weeks back and she lips looked sorta like this.

You are watching: I kissed someone with a cold sore what should i do reddit

Since i googled cold sores, and that looked favor what I saw in the photo (she had actually nothing in person when we kissed) I'm worried if I have actually cold sores now.

If you've kissed multiple people with cold sores, friend probably have the virus. A lot of world with it never ever actually present symptoms, though. It can lay dormant till something (extreme weather change; a punch to the lip; braided or chocolatey food) provides it present its disgusting face on your lip.

Cold sores have the right to be moved to your, uh, privates. So simply make sure not to let the girl touch her genitalia through her mouth or hand while she has one. I'd be paranoid even if she washes her hands thoroughly.

First, have you ever before been tested because that cold sores? A blood test is the best means to identify whether you have actually herpes. It deserve to take as much as 16 main to for the test to be 95% accurate.

One kiss is pretty low risk, though most world have HSV1 and also most people don't know it therefore you've more than likely kissed other world with herpes as well.

I can have once I to be younger, but I don't remember. Our institution offers examine ups. Have to I walk in 16 mainly from once it happened?

And if I've kissed others through herpies (supposedly) and also I haven't had it present up top top my challenge for 18 years, am i safe?

Can they spread as soon as they're dormant?

And to ward off any kind of of my suspicions:

Lets say mine ex had cold sores (no pls) and also we'd to be making out for about fifty percent a year. Then would I have them too? It's possible to have them but they stay dormant. Is it feasible to spread out them if they're dormant? How regularly should I gain tested?

Even if you've make out through someone because that a year the still doesn't average you absolutely have it. Herpes has a low transmission rate but because it's therefore prevalent civilization are exposed come the virus typically - even without knowing.

How frequently you acquire tested is as much as you. Some people never obtain tested because that herpes other people get tested as soon as a year, other people get tested in between partners. In ~ some point you have to ask yourself, space you going to obtain tested ~ every kiss for a virus that most world get anyway? You'll have actually to figure out what experimentation frequency you room comfortable with.

I have actually cold sores, don't know exactly how I gained them really but the vital thing to understand is that they're only an ext infectious throughout their breakout period.

While at times it is something conveniently noticeable and obvious, the could additionally be extended by assembly from what I've heard.

It's not the end of the people really. To me, it sucks, yet you mostly have to suffer the for about 1-2 weeks max. Shorter if you feel it coming prior to the blisters appear and also apply medication.

Anything rather you require to understand is extended in the write-up I linked.

edit- included a quick line.

edit 2- therefore I'm seeing an ext sources that the virus is not minimal to dispersing from open sores. As I comment to a comment below, ns was only going turn off what i knew and also Google

Your connect did not say that dental HSV1 is only transmittable when there cold sores. And your resource is WebMD....

Both oral and also genital herpes viruses can sometimes it is in spread, even when you carry out not have mouth sores or blisters.

Herpes is most infectious when sores room open, moist, or leaking fluid — until the scabs heal and fall off. However herpes can also be spread when no symptom are current - See an ext at: http://www.plannedparenthood.org/learn/stds-hiv-safer-sex/herpes#sthash.nR9P0Upx.dpuf

No, this is not correct. Transmission can happen without symptoms. In general, the transmission rate is really low but it's not zero.
