Have you ever in your life had a cold sore on your lip or in your nose? If yes, then that is why your HSV 1 is positive. it is normal to test positive, as half the population has HSV 1 infection. If you’ve not had a cold sore on your lip ever in your lifetime, then we cannot know if your infection is oral or genital and because of that, I don’t know how to answer all these other questions that you pose. Let me know.
