There is a chance: If you are are experiencing an oral breakout and in a contagious stage, kiss him, then have him perform oral sex on you then it is possible to contract HSV1 genitally. All the herpes viruses are similar to each other and can occur in areas where they traditionally do not. Fortunately medications are available that can help control breakouts. Ask your doctor about Valtrex (valacyclovir)
