My sister has been getting cold sores since she was around 11 or 12. Tonight, we accidentally mixed up our drinks, and I used her straw. She currently has a sore. She told me she "doesn't put her straw on the sore because it would hurt".
Am I at risk? I mean, afterall, her husband does not get cold sores and he definitely comes into a lot of contact with her mouth.
