Patient : I was diagnosed with HPV ans HSV-1 in December of 2009. My question is, can I can kiss people? I have not ever noticed a cold sore or any other irregularities in or on my mouth since being diagnosed. Do I have to tell people that I have HSV-1 before I kiss them? I am not sexually active at all right now and do not want to be until marriage.
