A member asked:

If somebody with oral herpes has an open sore and was drinking from a cup of water then spilled that water into my leg that had a cut. will i get it?

Yes and NO: Theoretically there is chance. But risk is minimal. Chance is much less than being involved in accident when you drive carefully for 1 mile.

No!: Herpes does not cause infections on skin all that easily. So you are OK. Do not worry about it any further.
