How can I prevent transmission of herpes simplex?

You can protect yourself against herpes simplex by some very simple, basic common sense things. Don't kiss someone with a large fever blister--while they have an active fever blister. If it's you with the fever blister and you put salve on your lips, wash your hands before you go to the restroom. As far as sexual contact with herpes, we do know that it can be transmitted whether or not there is a blister present and for that reason, protected sex is recommended.
