Fever Blister- - Oral Sex - can it spread?

I have a cold sore/fever blister on my lip. Can it be transmitted to my boyfriend if I give him oral sex?

Thanks much for your help!

Yes, it absolutely can. Fever blisters are actually a form of herpes, and it can be spread from the mouth to the genitals quite easily. Many people get genital herpes this way.

Thank you wearesiamese.

Is contagious through the sore itself or saliva?

The sore itself. The sore "sheds" cells which are what causes it to spread.

Cold sores are highly contaigous so you need to be sure not share utinsels such as silverware or glasses and yes no kissing. Also if you touch the area with your hands be sure to wash them thorougly before you touch anything else.
