Do Cold Sores Mean No More Kissing?
by Denny Bodoh

Does being a cold sore victim mean shutting down your social life?    

Some scientists say that you are always potentially contagious. They believe you can have active herpes virus shedding in your saliva, or other bodily fluids, at any time and could be contagious without an active or visible cold sore  on your lip.

In my opinion this is quite extreme.
  If you follow this theory, then you never, in good conscious, be able to kiss again.

There is no evidence that this situation, if it does occur, could actually infect someone else. 

And also keep in mind that 90% of the world population is already infected with this virus - usually by the time they are 12 years old.  (About a third of those people never show a single sign or symptom in a lifetime).

 Also, here is a critical fact that few, if any, are talking about. 

The cold sore virus is a sub-microscopic very tiny particle much the same size as the head cold and flu viruses.  It can fly through the air in moisture particles when you sneeze or cough just like the cold and flu viruses. 

Medically we know that we are always carrying some of these viruses, but our body defenses prevent them from causing symptoms.  No one is considered contagious for viral flu and colds unless they actually are sick with them.  I believe this is equally true for cold sores.      

Most scientists do not take this extreme approach.

The consensus of opinion among researchers is that you are only contagious during the period of herpes virus activity.  This activity begins at the first tingling sensation - when you feel the virus traveling through the nerve fiber to the surface.  Your contagious period ends, according to these experts, about 2 days after the final redness disappears.

During this contagious period, you should not kiss anyone on any part of their body.  If the virus finds a way through a break in the skin, or touches any mucus membrane, the person will get sores in that area.

Your best defense against this situation is to prevent cold sores permanently. 

If you are fed up with all the phony treatments and cures, and want to finally eliminate cold sores in your life, then I have some GREAT news for you.  Check out this link - you be the judge!
