you are + for hsv1 as most adults are. typically it's the cause of oral herpes infections.

what led to your getting tested?was this just a general screening or had you had an encounter you were worried about or symptoms genitally?

Has your wife been tested?  If she has cold sores or fever blisters you could have gotten HSV-1 genitally.  

Its to bad the doctor didn't do a lesion culture on the blister.  

My advice is have your wife tested with a HSV IGG blood test so she knows her status and what precautions if any you need to take.  HSV-1 genitally doesn't have a high reoccurance rate so that is a positive.

Please feel free to keep asking us questions.
