Cold sore was in scabbing stage. Boyfriend drank my bottle of water about 30 minutes after me. What are the chances of him contracting it?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Not much

He has more chance of contacting by kissing you than from the waster bottle.
If you have herpes simples virus will not survive out side body fluids , so don't worry Remember you have once infected by herpes simplex virus it will never leave the body ,
