Can I give my boyfriend type 1 herpes by performing oral sex on him while i have a fever blister?!

Question: Can I give my boyfriend type 1 herpes by performing oral sex on him while i have a fever blister.?
I do not have types 2 herpes, but every few years I get a fever blister, I wasn't aware that you weren't supposed to kiss and perform oral sex. Well.... now I'm scared to death I've gave it to him, what do we do.? Is it possible that it didn't spread to him, or at least his penis.?Health Question & Answer

Yes! Herpes type 1 is more common with cold sores and herpes type 2 is more common with genital herpes but they are both contagious through oral sex. Statistically you're probably looking at somewhere around 5% chance of having transmitted it to him.

If you're having problems with cold sores then see you doctor and ask for a prescription of Valtrex. I used to get terrible cold sores, since going onto Valtrex 5 years ago I haven't had a single major outbreak (and by major I mean something that is visible to other people).Health Question & Answer

Yes it's possible.

Herpes simplex virus 1 is usually responsible for cold sores (fever blisters), but it can also cause genital herpes.

Herpes simplex virus 2 is usually responsible for genital herpes but it can also cause cold sores.

If you have a cold sore and you give your boyfriend oral sex then it is possible to transfer the virus to his genital area and he could end up getting genital herpes. Question & Answer
