HSV1 questions. please answer!

So, I've just had a phone call to say I have hsv1. My first outbreak has just finished and it was on my genitals.

Does this mean my future recurrances will only happen on my genitals? Or could the next one come as a cold sore?

Well there's q chance you already had it on your mouth. If you're asking if it's going to travel from your genitals to your mouth and have an OB, then the answer is no. Had you got it on your mouth at the same time you contracted it down south and hadn't previously been exposed orally, you'd likely had a primary OB at both places at the same time. That's at least what I've seen from others who didn't have it on their mouth before and got it at the same time in both places. I wouldn't fret over it.
