Sexually Transmitted Infections

Sexually Transmitted Infections

I get cold sores. Can I pass these onto others if I give someone else oral sex?

Yes. Cold sores are a symptom of herpes simplex virus type 1, which can be spread to the genitals through oral sex. Herpes simplex virus type 2 is the kind of herpes that purely affects the genitals. Using protection like condoms and dental dams can help prevent the spread of herpes.
