Question: Can you still kiss with oral herpes?

For starters, avoid direct skin-to-skin contact during an outbreak. This includes kissing and oral sex, since herpes can be spread through oral action, including rimming. Avoid sharing objects that make contact with saliva, like drinks, utensils, straws, lipsticks, and — not that anyone would — toothbrushes.

When can I kiss someone with oral herpes?

In general, its best to wait until after the scabs and sores completely disappear before you kiss someone or engage in oral sex. This is because the herpes virus can continue shedding in the late stages of a cold sore healing, even if theres no viral fluid present.

Should I date someone with oral herpes?

Having the herpes virus does not mean that your dating life is over. There is no reason you cannot continue meeting and dating people, as long as youre willing to be open and honest with them about your diagnosis.
