How long must you be restricted from donating blood aftter you no longer get cold sores?
More than twenty years ago I was restricted from giving blood because I had a cold sore on my face.They said some baby might receive that blood and their breathing would be impaired. So obviously I refrained from donating blood. But I wonder about how long I need to do this.
You need to refrain from donating blood until all symptoms of the cold sore(s) or whatever health condition is an issue, have ended.

If you have cold sores from the herpes virus, they will never really "go away". you have it for life, like a fourth of the population.
