"Small scab, is it still contagious?"
   LAST EDITED ON Jan-02-13 AT 09:26 AM (CST)
I have/had a cold sore on my lips. That was 10 day ago. The skin is red and there is a small dot of dry skin.

I am very sexually active with my partner and we have oral sex frequently. I haven't had an outbreak in over a year. She wants to kiss me, but I said wait........... Am I right, she wants to do all the stuff we usually do, but I am slightly concerned.

Better safe than sorry?
Or just being paranoid?

Update: Completely healed, clear skin, but red. day 11. I just wait a few more days.

If the actual sore is gone and what you have there is essentially intact skin (minor discoloration is okay, so long as the skin feels normal and smooth again) then you can assume the OB is over.

Your OB is probably nearly over if not over altogether.

Be well,
