Little or no risk: Self-infection of a new area of the body with herpes (auto-inoculation) is rare. Once someone has had herpes for more than a few months, the immune system prevents new infections with the same HSV type. To be maximally safe, try to avoid similar events in the future. But probably no harm will come this time or if you make the same mistake again someday. ...Read more

My cold sore is scabbed up, but I picked at it and it bled. I forgot to wash my hannds, and then touched my boyfriends penis. The cold sore isn't a lump anymore, its even with my lip and all that's left is a scab.

It is hard to know whether you had active virus in the scab or not, but the germ occasionally sheds even if you have no sore. Your BF can contact his doc & see if he has a preference on how to handle such an event. If he already has genital herpes it may not be a problem. ...Read more
