I never put my fingers to my mouth, because of the cold sores, but I had the flu and was coughing
. I am pretty good about disinfecting/or washing my hands after coughing
, but could I get herpes on my hand this way? Today, It looks it doesn't look like a full blown infection, it looks raised and irritated. My husband say it looks like a minor burn, but I don't know. Could I infect myself? Can I transfer to my own hands?
