Herpetic whitlow
Can herpetic whitlow be contracted via indirect contact? So let's say someone has a cold sore, they touch it, and then touch a tiny little wound that has been there for a week (which is superficial tiny that it doesn't bleed or hurt) on my finger?

Highly unlikely as you have antibodies that would help prevent it.

But I am talking about another person. Let's say that I am one of the people that doesn't have antibodies against herpes. SOMEONE ELSE touches his cold sore, then touches the wound on MY finger. Am I at rist, or is this too indirect?

They would have to kiss your finger and rub there lips to force the virus into the nerve.
