Can you get type 2 herpes from drinking from the same water bottle
Geneviève Duperron Pharmacist owner affiliated with Familiprix

Yes it can happen.  Once you drank in the bottle of a person who has type 2 herpès lesion (or is about to develop it), you can carry the virus, but it doesn’t mean you will have lesions now:  some never do, some other develop it when they get fever 

The pharmacist is solely responsible for the answer.

Geneviève Duperron suggests meeting with your pharmacist.
