So to clarify, you are saying that if what he had was a cold sore, it is more likely he either had it before or I have HSV1 on my face and kissed him? I thought my hsv1 had come back negative but sometimes I do have little cracks in my lips where it is dry. I may have gotten that from him though. Is it more likely that it is oral HSV1 vs oral hsv2 since that is rare? Do you think I have to worry about having transferred something genitally to his face?
Is it possible that something that looks like a cold sore isn’t actually a cold sore?
I will get the western blot for clarity. Thanks.
