Ok, first post here & not sure if its in the right place. I kissed a girl last night, and this morning herpes/cold sores had broken out on my lips. I have had them before but didnt realise that they were active in my system at the moment. Before going out I thought my lips were grand, just a bit tender from being sunburnt, during the night there was some lip biting and then this morning, bang sores...I dont know the lad well but do see hi around as he is the friend of a really good friend, I am really worried that i might have infected him with oral herpies (there was no oral sex), but am really embarassed, what should I do?
if you had the virus beforehand, and if your lips were sunburnt, then thats pretty well why you would have a breakout. im not too sure if he can get it that way, however, you should inform him. theres a lot of people who have cold sores, so dont feel embarased!! i personally dont, but i know many people that do.
