can you get herpes in these ways.

Can you get herpes by useing a wash cloth and soap of some one who has herpes? Or drinking after them out of a glass?

Re: can you get herpes in these ways.

Theoretically, yes. The chances are pretty slim though.

The virus only lives for about 10 seconds outside it's host. That time would be extended a little bit if it was in a nice, moist, warm washcloth. But soap kills the virus, so it wouldn't live on soap.

And you'd have to drink out of the same glass IMMEDIATLY after someone with oral herpes did to catch the virus this way.

It can happen, but the chances are pretty low.
