Kissed, I had cold sore

A few nights ago I was hanging out and we all played spin the bottle. I kissed a few people, but a cold sore above my upper lip is in the process of healing (beyond the scab stage, kind of). I know that this was not a very great idea. I am wondering if there is a high chance other people will get the virus? I at least had the forsight to make sure no contant was made with the area when kissing, and when making out (for a few seconds. nothing serious), no contact was made directly with my maxilla (where it is). I'm a little worried because I would hate to give it to other people, seeing as I hate the virus enough. Any and all help is appreciated.

Re: Kissed, I had cold sore

It's hard to say. Sometimes when you're past the scab stage, it means the virus has gone dormant again but personally I'd want the entire sore to be completely healed.

Regardless, you can also pass the virus with no sore present, thru viral shedding.

I'd not repeat what you did, but I also wouldn't dwell on it. 50% of the population has oral herpes. Any time we kiss ANYONE we're risking getting it.
