Hi! I have had HSV type 1 (herpes on the mouth but dormant) since I was a kid. I'd like to ask.

(1)Although I didn't have cold sores at the time of the intercourse, will HSV increase my chances of contracting HIV? I read online that having another STD increases risk of getting HIV. I don't have the genital herpes type, though. And I only engaged in oral sex as the insertive/active larger (I was the one getting "sucked")

(2)Can anyone recommend ways to treat cold sores on the mouth? Do they always require medication?
