Can you catch herpes from someone accidentally spitting on you?

Question by WastedSushi: Can you catch herpes from someone accidentally spitting on you?
I have a 20 yr old friend that has herpes Simplex 1 and while she was talking, her spit accidentally flew right above my lip! Twice! I asked her if she was having an outbreak, and she told me that her tongue feels a little tingly. I am so afraid if I caught it! That wouldn’t even be fair, because I’m an 18 yr old virgin!

    No herpes isn’t passed through saliva. She would have to kiss you on the lips while she has the cold sore. When you have skin to skin contact with a blister or sore like kissing, you would be morel likely to get oral herpes.
    50-80 percent of the population has cold sores (which are caused by oral herpes) so they are very common to have. Most of the time the are contracted during child hood by innocently kissing or being kissed by some one that has cold sores. You an get cold sores while you are a virgin, you’re not likely to get oral herpes from having sex.
