In brief: 2 strains of HSV

2strains of herpes simplex virus, can get either one as oral or genital infection.
Had one, not immune to the other. Can get either without obvious flare up (cold sore)-can still shed virus. Both immune to same strain: immune. Both immune to different strains: can infect each other by seapping fluids.

In brief: No

A virus is an opportunistic organism. Any sore or trauma is an open invitation to relay the virus.
Be selfish keep your viruses to yourself.
