Friend of mine has a sore on his lip and Im not sure if its herpes or not. Its been there for a while and its healing up now. I shared a ciggarette w him yesterday and Im worried about the possibility of obtaining herpes if indeed he has it. What are the chances that this occured? I think this virus can be transmitted by what I described but I wanted to know the probability. Please let me know as Im trying to get a grip here.
can someone please respond to this as if herpes was present? I read that its easy to transfer but then this site mentions low risks...please provide any type of insight you can to put my mind to rest. Thanks.
Thanks for the response Grace and I apologize for not reading and being impatient...
Just another question...since you can get herpes from kissing if the sore is active and present, then cant that saliva left from the ciggarette essentially transmit if shared under the assumption that herpes is present?
