    ...when you have a cold sore? I don't even think this is a cold sore, it looks/feels like a pimple on my lip. When i push down on it (or put pressure on it), it hurts. I've had several cold sores in the past and this does not look like one at all. It is not itchy and is not growing larger or swelling up, which is why I'm inclined to believe this is not a cold sore. Can anyone help a brother out?

    Worst case scenario: I have a small cold sore. Is it safe to finger a girl? Have sex? I'm sure it's 100% NOT safe to perform oral or kiss.

    Get some rubbing alcohol, put it on a swatch of toilet paper of a cotton ball, and scrub over that fucker.
    Do NOT ingest any of the alochol.

    good Goddess, don't do that!
    But the answer is yes and no. Make sure that you thoroughly wash your hands (with soap and water) before you have sexual contact, and do NOT kiss or have oral sex.

    Why would it not be safe to have sex if you have a cold sore on your lip? :squint:

    If it's what I think it is, it most certainly is not a cold sore.
    Treat it like a clogged pore.

    What if I just leave it alone? I'll let it sit for a few days to see what's up. And white zx3, I wasn't able to find solid information on the internet about vaginal intercourse while a cold sore is present. Some sites include information about genital herpes along with oral herpes, so the answer isn't very clear.

    I guess I could *kinda see that, but you can only infect another person by direct contact.
    I used to get cold sores also, and we're always VERY careful when I have them.

    What the hell are the chances that I'll be getting a pimple on my LIP, the most random of places. GG life.

    I don't think it's a pimple, but I don't think it's a symbol of any type of STD/STI/whathaveyou

    Well it's day 2 and it appears to be a damn cold sore.

    From what I've gathered, it's safe to finger and have sex, but no kissing or oral.

    Last question: can she safely give me oral?

    Again, why wouldn't it be safe?

    NO CONTACT WITH YOUR COLD SORE AND ANYTHING ELSE and you'll be fine.
    Wash your hands thoroughly also (after putting on your medicine or touching your cold sore).

    Just don't let the cold sore (or whatever it is on your lip) touch any part of her. Cold sores are only contagious through direct contact. But make sure your hands are clean, too.

    Could go to the Dr. They can swab it and test so you know for sure.

    you're asking if it's safe, the short, and correct, answer is NO

    if you have an outbreak, you are able to infect others
    even if you don't shows signs it's still possible to spread it

    So the answer is: do not touch her directly with my cold sore, keep my hands/etc. clean, and I'll be ok? Understood.
    Final question: is it ok for her to give me oral? I know that I CANNOT give her oral under any circumstances.

    YES
    How hard is it for you to understand that as long as your cold sore does not have contact with anything else (or if your hands have had contact with your coldsore you need to wash them first) it is perfectly safe.

    How the hell did you think it was a pimple and not a cold sore?
    Cold sores are open, pimples are... small bumps.

    Cold sores are generally also tingly as they are coming up while a pimple certainly isn't.

    Cold sores can also be smallish bumps Improvolone, they are all different.
