 Post subject: Sharing food and drinks
PostPosted: Sun Oct 28, 2007 4:23 am 
Hi,

I would like to know if HSV 1 can be transmitted from one person to another by the sharing of food and drinks, e.g. taking bites from the same burger or drinking Coke from the same can/bottle. Thanks in advance.

Joe

As an adult, oral herpes is almost exclusively transmitted thru direct skin on skin contact - as in good ole fashioned smooching. It's not going to be easily transmitted thru sharing food and drinks like cold and flu germs are. In theory it could be but conditions have to be just about perfect and your body's defenses would have to be down at the same time so it's not likely to happen that way.
