Obviously I can pass on herpes with this. I've suffered with cold sores all my life, I was born with the virus. I have a cold sore at the minute, first one in ages, I've been feeling tired lately which is what I put it down to. I know all about the dangers of it and how to avoid giving anyone else the infection. But what I'm wondering is how easy is it to pass the infection from my mouth to my own genitals. I don't want to accidentally wipe my mouth and forget about it, then end up spanking the monkey and passing the infection via my hand. :$ Is that possible?
