Can my kids get infected if they drink from the same straw? I dont think i have a coldsore but the inside of my upper lip burns, i had left my drink next to the bed when i noticed my two year old drinking from it, i panic and took it from her and i yelled at her why did she get it i wanted to cry. Should i take her to the doctor?

If you're not having any cold sores the risk of transmission from a straw is very unlikely and a doctor generally will not do any testing on anybody unless they have symptoms. And as I said before children are more likely to get oral herpes from kissing a relation or a friend or a kid at school and you can't monitor that to the nth degree.
