Our expert says:
Herpes labialis is a common herpes virus that you can pick up when you kiss someone or use a contaminated sample of lipstick in the shop or someone else's lipice. It only is contagious when you have the blisters and if you treat with antiviral as soon as the blisters start ( within 12 hours) there's a good chance that you can eliminate the virus.
