Generally type 1 will be an oral infection, but it could be genital as well. Did you have genital symptoms, or cold sores around your lips/mouth?

Either way, if contact is made with your boyfriends mouth or genitals he is at risk. The amount of risk depends on several things though. e.g. kissing him would not give him cold sores if you had a type 1 genital infection.

It's scary at first, but several people have it. Many people don't even know because they do not routinely test for herpes, and some people have no idea cold sores are caused herpes.

Good luck, several other people around here can help if you have any questions

if you have a history of cold sores then you know your hsv1 is oral and not genital.
