How to disinfect a herpes virus (cold sores) on my phone and remote surfaces? Is it possible to completely kill them?

Herpes: Herpes virus isn't particularly bad to catch. Most people have exposure to herpes type 1 by the time they are 20. About 1 in 5 people show blood evidence of having been exposed to herpes type 2 virus. Most don't even know it. Some people do have trouble with frequent or severe outbreaks.

Baby is watched: A woman with a history of genital herpes, even without fresh sores on her genitals, can transmit herpes virus to her baby during delivery. Such an at-risk baby is carefully examined, so that anti-viral medications can be started if the baby shows signs of herpes infection (rashes or sickly behavior).

Maybe someday, but probalby not in the near future. ...Read more
Herpes virus: Herpes is a nasty virus that after a primary infection (cold sores or genital sores) will 'hide' in the nerve roots forevermore. It may come out again -particularly at times of stress or other disease/illness. These are 'outbreaks'.

Re-current outbreaks can be due to a aggressive virus, to stress and fatigue and skin irritation. ...Read more
Stick with legit Rx.: Imulux is a light treatment, which lectroject is a scary-looking electrical contraption. I know of no credible evidence that either one works.
