Boils transmission

I have a boil on my leg (just below the my knee). It is still healing and i have it bandaged with silverex cream.

I'm a newbie to the medical world. Will me kissing my girlfriend be a bad thing? I wouldn't want her to catch anything.

Re: Boils transmission

Boils are a localised skin infection. They're not transmissable from person to person. So no worries in the girlfriend department.
