I was at work yesterday and my co worker with an active cold sore was talking to me and I felt her spit on my cheek. I grabbed hand sanitizer right away and rubbed it all over my face and when I could get to the bathroom I scrubbed my face with hot water and hand soap. Am I going to get herpes outbreaks now?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
No.There is no scope of transmitting Herpes in that way.Do not worry.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counseling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
