Very unlikely: If truly your initial oral HSV1 infection, there could be a small risk of auto-inoculation of your genital area. However, if your cold sore is typical, i.e. only one blister or sore, or a small cluster of them, your oral herpes probably is not a new infection but recurrence of chronic, previously asymptomatic oral herpes. Longstanding herpes is almost never auto-inoculated to new sites. ...Read more

Cold sore on lip. If i unknownly touch my vagina, would it pass it down?

It happens sometimes during an initial HSV infection, but after a few months the immune system prevents it. If you've had recurrent cold sores a long time, there's no chance you will infect your genital area. This is also why couples with genital or oral herpes in both partners do not pass it back and forth. ...Read more
