Hi, I recently went for a check up and I noticed the nurse, performing the physical examination on my genitals, had a coldsore. She mentioned she was feeling poorly and often coughed throughout the examination, she was wearing gloves but still put her hands over her mouth whenever she coughed and reverted back to the physical examination. I didn’t say anything but could I now catch genital herpes from her coughing on her hands (with gloves on) and then her touching my genitals?

Plus if you've ever had a cold sore, you already have at least one of the two strains of HSV and you can't catch what you already have.
