how does genital herpes (that would be the herpes that crops up on your genitals, not the gentle herpes you refer to) get on your lipgloss?
don’t answer me, the vision alone is quite disturbing.
but anyway, you can catch herpes only by contact, but the contact can be secondary such as by sharing toothbrushes, lipgloss, lipstick, etc, or whatever. kissing and oral sex can spread herpes to otehr palces too. it has to touch your mucosa, ie soft wet tissue like vagina, penis or lips or eyelids to gain access to the nerves underneath, where it hides out from the immune system and occassionally comes out to play, usually when your immune system is a bit stressed out.
be aware that many herpes carriers can shed active virus even without any noticeable surface lesions. this is a problem with genital herpes in particular.
