Can you get herpes simplex 2 from smoking or drinking after someone who gets cold sores?
I just recently found out that herpes can be transmitted from the mouth to the genitals, because a good friend has herpes simplex 2 on her mouth and unknowingly ended up giving a bunch of people genital herpes through oral sex….even though she doesnt even have genital herpes. All I really want to know is how close of contact you need to have to contract it….like do you have to make out with the person? or can you get it by sharing a glass of water? i read somewhere that you cant get it from a toilet seat…so idunno…any help would be welcome.
