you will not get herpes from sharing a cig with someone.

this doesn't sound like oral herpes at all. see your provider for proper testing if you are concerned.

as you were told previously, as an adult, oral herpes is almost exclusively transmitted through romantic type kisses.

have you ever been tested to know your own herpes status? a lack of obvious cold sores doesn't mean you don't have hsv1 yourself.

cigarette smoking is far more of a health risk than oral herpes will ever be!!
