I dont know if this question belongs in this section or not. My wife had her first cold sore two days ago and is currently still active. weve been together for some time now and sexually active as well only with each other. Ive never had one breakout in my life but that does not mean i might not have it. I love her to death and that doesnt bother me but she will not kiss me until according to her its "safe for me". When it is actually safe for me to kiss her? WIll the cold sore be a different color? size? She feels kind of down because we are usually hugging kissing and spending affectionate time together but because of this she kinda wants to keep the kissing part aside. im sure ima get it eventually if i dont have it already but My concern is to make her happy.
