Cold sore transmutation possibilities

Hi,
My sister and I were sharing dim sims and were dipping them into the same sauce. She has a cold sore and we were both double dipping. What are the chances of me contacting a cold sore

Hi, there is no chance to contract herpes by what your describing.

Although HSV has been found to live a few minutes in saliva, there are no documented cases of HSV being transmitted in this manner. I would recommend, however, that you not share food and drinks, using the same utensils or "dipping sauces." There are a lot of other bugs to catch besides HSV!
