    Default Re: Cold sore question

    If everyone in her family gets the cold sores chances are it is hereditary. A friend of mine has hereditary cold sores and gets an outbreak once or twice a year. If it is hereditary, I don't know if you can catch it from her.

    Honestly, unless you had an open sore that you put on the phone the second she put it down, you chances of getting the cold sores from using the phone is slim to none. She would have had to pretty much kiss the phone for the virus to be on it. I wouldn't be too worried about it.



    (Note: I am not a doctor, so I am not 100% sure, but this is what I was told by an older, more knowledgeable relative than myself. You can always call your doctor to be sure.)

    Okay, I asked a nurse at my doctor's office. She said that it was unlikely that I could catch it that way, but she also said it wasn't a good idea for this girl to be picking at it since you never know who she could be putting at risk. What if an old lady with a weak immune system touched something she touched?

    It's good to hear you can't get it that way. I still think is kinda gross, I have never gotten one. I got one when I was about 6 because I had a very bad fever but I think it's a different thing. She should not be picking it, she needs to use common sense because even if chances of passing it onto someone else are very low she could get the sore infected or is it infected already? duh, of course it is. You know what I mean

    Yeah, she really shouldn't be picking at it. It's kind of disturbing. LOL!
