My boyfriend developed a cold sore on the weekend, its thursday now, and it has started to heal. I've never gotten a cold sore before, so i've been keeping my distance (with kissing etc) so hopefully i wont get it.
My question is how long will it take for it to be pretty safe for me to be able to kiss him(and everything else)without being in high risk of getting it??

When it's totally healed up and not visible you're as safe as you get.
