In brief: Possible...

The described scenario may transmit HSV-1 if its virus meets and enters the injured skin.
But most of times, the second line of defense with humoral immune ability may fight off such invasion for average healthy persons but few may not good enough so resulting in manifesting HSV-1 related symptoms and skin lesions in weeks after exposure. More? Ask Doc timely.
