Can I get oral Herpes from sharing razor

I used my dads razor who has oral herpes, he did not use the razor during an outbreak....what are the chances that I now have oral herpes?? Would the shaving cream have killed the virus? Also I did NOT cut myself while shaving.
thanks

Very unlikely,but please get your own razor it's never wise to share personal items of any kind.

thank you for your response, I was in a huge hurry and needed a razor and did not think before I used it. Has anyone ever heard of someone contracting herpes via razor? Also does anyone know if the shaving cream or hot water would have killed the virus if it was on the razor.
thanks

It can happen. I wouldn't worry about it though from the situation you described.
