Our expert says:
Steven, type 1 can’t change to type 2, but it can infect the genitals. There is treatment available like Famvir® that will suppress it, but at this stage there is no cure. I wrote something on genital herpes a while ago, so if you’re interested in a copy, mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Good luck.
