Many people always wonder this question: Will I Get a Cold Sore from My Boyfriend That Has a Cold Sore . Well, to answer this question I will say It's not a definite yes; Just a possibility. And a cold sore is a virus called herpes zoster, so if you do indeed get it, you're stuck with it for life. You will get a break out of a sore at random times that last about a week and a half to 2 weeks. You can always get a medication called Abreva or something on a prescription that would help you to alleviate a specific break out (if it's taken soon enough in that specific break out), but there's no way to cure it.
If you didn't get cold sores as a child then yes there is a very good chance that you could get cold sores from your boy friend if he kisses you while he has an outbreak. Cold sores are very contagious while there is any sign of a sore. Most of the time cold sores are passed on during child hood by being innocently kissed by some one that has cold sores and doesn't know any better. The same could have happened to you when you were younger. Cold sores are very common to have 50-80 percent of the population has them. There are no stupid questions, if you don't ask how you are supposed to gain knowledge.
So basically you have a good chance of getting a cold sore but just now big that chances are, we can't know for sure. I have learned by my Dr. from school that a cold sore is from the inside of your mouth and yes you can give it to someone else. Herpes is from the outside of your mouth on your lips. Yes you can spread that too.
