OK... short answer:
Don't worry about it
. Don't kiss someone (or use your mouth in any other way) while you have sores. Other than that, live your life.
The only significant damage caused by herpes (of either type) is the stigma and fear caused by this over-hyped skin rash. No one even cared about Herpes (either kind) until the 1970s when drug companies hyped it up to sell newly invented anti-viral medicines.
1. In the majority of cases, the Herpes virus does nothing. In the majority of the remaining cases, it causes a rash once in a while. It is very rare for herpes to cause any other complication (except for people with HIV or some other health issue).
2. The CDC recommends people NOT get tested for either kind of Herpes (oral or genital), because the stress caused by the stigma of the disease is worse than the disease itself
. If you get tested for STDs, most likely you will not be given a herpes test unless you have symptoms.
3. Most adults in the US have at least one type of Herpes (oral or genital). Over 20% of women and over 10% of men have genital herpes. Most people who have the virus are happily ignorant of their condition.
It is just stupid that people make such a big deal over this. Live your life.
