Herpes question?

If I kissed someone on the nose or cheek and I have herpes, will it be spread to them?

  • What sort of herpes? One that's usually on the lips, or "down there"?

    • Lips

    • I'd be careful, since: "Oral herpes is transmitted through direct contact between the contagious area and broken skin (a cut or break) and mucous membrane tissue (such as the mouth or genitals)."

  • It's not likely to spread unless it gets near a wet place, but it CAN. But that's only if you have herpes cold sores.

  • If you have a cold sore (herpes labialis), you can transmit the virus by kissing them, sharing food, drinks, eating utensils, etc. It's best to avoid these kinds of activities during a breakout.
