Question? I shared a few cigarettes with my sister over the weekend. She has a cold sore which to me appeared to be scabbed over. Am I still at risk?

Less likely, but: The fact that the lesion was healed over means is would not be shedding as much virus as an open sore. Most herpes labalis is caused by HSV1 with oral to oral contact. Nevertheless, spread by cigarette sharing is possible. **50-60 % of adults have contracted HSV 1 in childhood....so it's quite likely you have already been exposed. ...Read more

If i performed oral sex on someone while my cold sore were scabbed and didn't make contact with the sore. Is there a chance of no infection?

A very small chance: There is no for sure answer for your question. Technically the virus is back in the nerve cell at that stage but no one really knows. Herpes virus is spread by close contact such as kissing and sexual intercourse. You can have herpes and have only mild symptoms or no symptoms. Lest hope you didn't infect them. ...Read more
