Can you get herpes in the mouth just from kissing mouth to mouth?

Can you get herpes in the mouth just from kissing mouth to mouth?

Of course: By adult age, most people have the common oral herpes virus. The luckier ones don't get outbreaks on their lips, or only rarely get them. Kissing is a common way that herpes is transmitted orally (but a person will not catch the same herpes type 1, if she already caught it earlier in her life... however, she may get outbreaks from time to time)

My friend has (mouth) herpes but still lets people eat/drink after her. How can I get her to protect others?

My friend has (mouth) herpes but still lets people eat/drink after her. How can I get her to protect others?

Be aware: We do not need to be "germaphobes" but we can be kind to those around us. If your physician has diagnosed an infection in you of any kind, inquire how it is transmitted and how to prevent same. Truth be told some "terrible" bugs are real wimps in the real world. The common cold can stay on door knobs. Sexually transmitted diseases are only spread with close contact in a narrow temp & moisture...

Can you get infected with your own herpes by touching your earphones and then ur earphones touch your mouth?

Depends on immunity: A person who has herpes on one body part should have immunity if he is not having his very first skin lesions. That means he should not be able to spread his own genital or oral herpes to other sites on his body. Suppose however, that he is playing with a woman's genitals, and she has the other strain of herpes that he doesn't yet have... is that case, he can spread HER herpes onto HIS body parts.

Low risk/com sense: By the 20s most of us have actually contracted HSV1 (felt often spread as child) w the WHO in 2015 showing 2/3 of pop 15 - 40 infected, w most asymptomatic carriers. Risk of spread greatest when there is a visible lesion or just before. During that time also found in saliva. While sore avoid contact w sore/saliva, common sense like don't share utensils, etc. When no sore risk of spread near none.

Could someone get eye herpes if someone with sores in their mouth breathes on them?

Could someone get eye herpes if someone with sores in their mouth breathes on them?

No: Herpes flares up in the eyes because it is already in that persons body. You can only catch herpes type I from someone else if you are immunosuppressed. Type II herpes is transmissible but requires direct fluid contact and this is unlikely in an ordinary breath. Also there are many reasons for sores in the mouth and your friend might have one of the other causes.

I get a sharp pain in my back when swallowing - herpes of the mouth symptom. What do I do?

See your doctor: Contrary to your assertion, pain in the back is not a symptom of oral herpetic infection. My advice would be to visit your medical doctor for diagnostic assessment. Although back pain is sometimes due to muscle spasm, it can also be a result of other disorders, some of them serious, including referred pain from digestive tract or kidney disease.
