I get the odd cold sore now and again and never kiss my husband or kids if I get an outbreak. It's a "hugs only" week, unfortunately.
But is it possible to possibly transfer cold sores to my loved ones when I don't have an outbreak?
I can't NOT kiss my husband or kids and to only kiss on the cheek for life is impossible!
So aside from what I currently do, is there anything more?
FYI: neither my husband or kids have ever had a cold sore. And I've been smooching them a long time!
