I would be somewhat more concerned if he is at particularly high risk for HIV
, i.e. bisexual, injection drug user, immigrant from an AIDS
-endemic country, inner-city African American, or recently released from prison. In the US and other industrialized countries, very few men without those risks have HIV.
Having HSV-2 does increase HIV risk, but you have HSV-1 -- and that does not increase the risk, even when the infection is genital.
