I have always gotten cold sores being under the extreme stress i have been under going threw this divorce it has spread everywhere i just started talking acyclovir once the break out is gone can u have sex without spreading it???
Make sure you have no open sore's and even then it could happen it stay's in your body till something like stress awakes it, you should talk with your Doctor about taking something to help you not to spread it so easy, like Valtrex, you would take it once a day, its a 3 weeks deal with a break out. first week you break out, second week healing, third week like shedding, I would wait that long before having sex. wash your hands every time you can spread it to other parts of the body as well, good luck to you.
