Worried

ive had cold sores for over 10 years and I have one right now and after I brushed my teeth I wiped my mouth with the back of my hand (where the cold sore is) without even thinking. I washed my hands immediately but im worried now that it will transfer to my hand

  • You washed your hands. You do not have an open wound on your hands do you?

  • No you will not transfer it. You have a virus thats in your mouth and will not transfer to your hand. Dont worry so much...you sound like me!! LOL

  • You're not going to transfer the cold sore virus from your mouth to your hand. No worries.
