What's up?
Hi,

I would like to find out if it is possible for a guy to contract a "COLD SORE" even when I have been for a check up a month ago and nothing was wrong & have NOT been sexually active since then. I dont have any symptoms, from my side, I have no discomfort what-so-ever. What is the cause of this & what must I look out for. Is it possible for the guy to have it from his side??? What's up with this??

Cold sores usually occur on the mouth and men and women can get them.
