Can one contract oral herpes by sharing a bottle (or cup) with someone who's infected?
In other words if your partner gets cold sores, dump them. :-)
Since 50% of teenagers have positive antibodies to HSV-1 and climbs to 85% by age 50 in the general population, that pretty much limits your playing field. (AND DON'T forget 70% of the time someone with HSV can shed the virus and infect others without any visible lesions!):surprised
What about washing clothes together with the clothes of someone infected? (underwear too)
no the herpes virus is too fragile to survive such a bashing
the detergent used in the wash should be pretty damaging to the proteins on the virus.
