Herpes virus: Oral herpes (hsv1) is most often from physical contact with an infected individual.

Hsv1: Probably the overall fear is due to the name herpes, and its association with a sexually transmitted disease. Also once a person contracts either hsv1 or hsv2, there is no getting rid of it. It is known as 'the gift that keeps on giving'. After an outbreak, sometimes a very painfull experience, the sores go away, but the virus lives dormant in the spinal nerve ganglia, and can reapear any time. ...Read more
Is it possible to get Oral herpes, specifically, from sharing a glass with someone? If so, how soon could it develop?
Very rare: In general, HSV is transmitted only by direct skin to skin contact with an infected person, like kissing or sex. The virus is rarely if ever transmitted by sharing drinking or eating utensils. Also not by shared towels, clothing, or toilets. Whenever HSV is caught, symptoms usually start 3-5 days later, sometimes up to 10-14 days. ...Read more

If I have gential herpes is there a test to say if i got it from oral herpes or if i got it from someone who also has gential herpes. Is this possible?
Herpes simplex: This is possible but unlikely. This virus is best transmitted by direct contact and not usually by inanimate objects, but if the joint was freshly contaminated and touched areas of your lips through which it could gain entry this is conceivable. HSV1 and HSV2 obtained directly from ulcerative or vesicular genital lesions were able to survive for several hours on fomites and hard surfaces. ...Read more

Worms???: I don't know what it means to "worm" an eye. If there is direct contact of someone's mouth with your eye, and if that person has an oral herpes outbreak at the time, AND if you have not previosly had oral herpes yourself, then the virus might be transmitted. Within a few days, you would have severe pain in the eye. If that happens, see a doctor immediately. Otherwise, I see no cause for worry. ...Read more
