Ive been talking to this girl for a couple weeks now, and one day she shows up with a fever blister. We still talk and friends but its going away now. Im kinda weary of kissing this girl cause im afraid ill get a fever blister also. And I never get them. After her fever blister goes away and I kiss her is there a chance that ill get one? Or how long should I wait to kiss her to be safe?

Thanks, any help is appreciated

She most likely has a cold sore. Cold sores are contagious while they are visible. It is not very likely that you could acquire a cold sore if you kiss her while her lips look fine. Do not kiss her while she has a cold sore. Cold sores are harmless, however they are highly contagious to others as well as yourself. If you have a cold sore and touch it, you can potentially spread it to other areas of your body. If you really like this girl don't let a little blister freak you out. Tons of people get cold sores and it does not mean that she is gross or diseased. If you really want to kiss her just make sure she doesn't have a sore. Besides, cold sores hurt pretty bad so I doubt she'd want to kiss you with one on her lips anyway.

I think it's possible but highly unlikely if it is healed. I can give you a bit of useful info where fever blisters are concerned, and that is to not go down on anyone nor let anyone go down on you if they have a fever blister or sore on their lip because you most definately can get genital herpes as a result even if your partner doesn't have the genital kind.

INCORRECT INFORMATION. Herpes Simplex-1 or 2, the viruses that can cause fever blisters and genital herpes can actively replicate even when there is no blister present. IT IS STILL CONTAGIOUS SOMETIMES WHEN THERE IS NO BLISTER PRESENT... AND THE PERSON THAT HAS THE VIRUS CANNOT TELL ALWAYS WHEN IT IS SHEDDING (i.e. it doesn't always cause prodrome, aka pre-symptoms of a blister, when it is shedding)
