I have mouth herpes (cold sores) and I rarely get breakouts. I have a boyfriend and he kept telling me that he felt like I was keeping something from him, and I was keeping the cold sores a secret because I was embarrassed. I have never kissed him when I get a breakout to prevent giving it to him. I told him about the cold sores last night and he’s upset I didn’t tell him. My doctor told me it was extremely common and not to worry, and to not share drinks or kiss when I have a breakout . Is my boyfriend exaggerating or am I wrong? He’s not speaking to me right now. What do I say to him ????? Please help!!!!
