I have a cold sore and used a straw. About 1-2 hours later, my daughter took the straw out of the trash and put it in her mouth. Did she get virus?
Probably not: The amount of virus left on the straw probably is too little and also would not be contagious, because saliva etc would have dried. The risk may not be zero, but it's very low. Kids mostly catch oral herpes from play- and school-mates. It can happen from infected parents, but usually by closer contact like kissing. Of course take her to the pediatrician ASAP if she gets oral sores or sore throat. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My daughter has a really bad sore throat and i brought her to the hospital and they testrd her for strep throat and they daid she doesn't have it..
Not strep : She doesn't have a strep infection. They may have tested her and said there was no strep present. That means her sore throat is caused by virus. Antibiotics are not helpful for viral infections. That doesn't diminish her pain or discomfort, but it means the cause is not a strep germ. Pain and fever relievers, rest, and fluids are the treatment. ...Read more

Good luck. ...Read more

Yes but relax: Most people your age already have this virus but do not know it. So you probably already have it. A blood test can tell.
