I have hsv2 but can I get hsv1 too?

Recommended Posts

I have genital hsv2 but I also think that I have it orally as well. I develop small bumps on my lips and chin that never really turn to sores... but the bumps come with tingling and burning sensation so I have reason to believe that it I have it orally.

Question is - if I kiss someone who has hsv1, will I still contract that or will I already be immune to the virus? Or am I more susceptible to contracting the other type since I'm already positive for hsv? I thought I read someone's response a while back stating that it's not likely to contract the other string if you already have one of them.

Anything is possible but I've read that it rare to contract hsv1 on top of hsv2.
