Herpes 1?

Ever since I was a child I have always gotten fever blisters on my lips - like multiple at a time. My mom always said they were blisters from the sun, I am very fair skinned - but then we found out I was citric acid intolerable - and we then noticed I would get them whenever I would eat a strong amount of citric acid.
However, I am now wondering if I have Herpes 1. I have never had the blisters anywhere besides my mouth - not on any skin or genital area, but I looked up citric acid intolerable symptoms online and they said that you would only react on the inside of the mouth.
Is it pretty certain that I have Herpes 1?

Re: Herpes 1?

The best way to find out would be to ask the doctor for the IgG herpes type specific blood test. This will let you know if you have it or not
