Question: Is HSV-1 contagious without an outbreak?

Prevention. HSV-1 is most contagious during an outbreak of symptomatic oral herpes, but can also be transmitted when no symptoms are felt or visible. People with active symptoms of oral herpes should avoid oral contact with others and sharing objects that have contact with saliva.

How contagious is HSV-1 asymptomatic?

Asymptomatic Herpes May Be More Contagious According to research, at least 70% of people experience asymptomatic shedding of HSV-1 at least once a month. Many may even shed the herpes virus without symptoms more than six times per month.
