Hi,

Welcome to JA and thanks for this question. Im sorry to hear about your girlfriend. Actually herpes is transmitted through direct contact with cold sores over the lips or with contact with mucous membranes which means through the membranes inside the oral cavity/mouth. It is not transmitted via inanimate objects which means through toothbrushes or other objects. However, HSV-1 can be transmitted from oral or skin surfaces that appear normal and when there are no symptoms present. However, the greatest risk of transmission is when there are active sores.

So basically this means that you can get herpes by simple contact with sores around the mouth, meaning kissing etc or even via contact of the oral cavity with genitals which have herpes sores. But herpes is not transmitted via objects etc.

Do you have any more questions?

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
