I had a outbreak in my vaginal area but got tested for herpes came back negative is it possible I had it before with no outbreaks or did my boyfriend now cold sore cause it. So my boyfriend at the time frequently had mouth cold sores (never said anything to me) and he was the only person who gave me oral sex. All the results came back negative. I just noticed a few blisters on the back of my tongue and sides they bother me when I eat or drink.

I’ll post my results but just be honest with me here there is no mistaking he has herpes. We figured if he had an outbreak it should be in his blood versus me who hasn’t had anything as of yet Could you get a chance to also answer my above question regarding if we both have it the chances per year that i would get it genitally.

Cold sores are caused by infection with a virus called the herpes simplex virus, commonly known as herpes. Not everyone who becomes infected with a herpes virus gets cold sores.
