Can cold sores be distributed to genital areas?
I am worried: l have heard that cold sores in one's mouth can be distributed to the genitals via saliva. Is that true? How soon will symptoms appear and what will it be? Can l follow any preventative treatment. And if l should develop symptoms are there any serious side effects ( especially concerning pregnancy). I would appreciate your help on the topic.
