i currently DONT have a cold sore but i know i am still contagious, so when i woke up earlier i noticed i had fallen asleep on my arm and that means my lips were touching my arm and there was also drool so i got up amd wiped my arm and used a little soap and water, should i expect to see herpes on my arm now? and i also had been taking valtrex for only a couple days now if that help

Usually autoinoculation occurs in areas where there is a break in the skin (torn cuticles for example) or there are mucous membranes (eyes, nose, genitals, mouth). You aren't always contagious when there isn't a cold sore present. I do not think you have anything to worry about.
