2 month ago I got herpes cold sore on my lip 1 month ago it seemed to heal but redness remains & it has slowly better Am I still contagious? Can I kiss

OK to kiss: Slightly contagious when no sore is present. Relax. Most people already have it without any symptoms. So the person you kiss already has it or will get it anyway. Do not kiss kids with active eczema or people with diseases of disordered immunity. The color will soon be normal. Valacyclovir and acyclovir prescription pills are very effective to treat or prevent attacks. Attacks may come from sun ...Read more

2 months ago I got herpes cold sore on my lip 1 month ago it seemed to heal but redness remains & has slowly bettered Am I still contagious? Can I kiss

Yes: Most of these are HSV1 and most adults already have it without any symptoms. So whoever you kiss either already has it or will get it anyway. You shed viruses periodically so you might transmit it between attacks, though you are most contagious at the beginning of a sore. Fish oil is of absolutely no value for this. There is no "detox" of herpes. There is a prescription pill which is very effective. ...Read more
