About a week ago I bit my lip very hard

Patient: About a week ago I bit my lip very hard. It bled and eventually scabbed over. The scab healed nicely and soon almost disappeared. Not thinking anything of the scab, I performed oral sex on my boyfriend last night. Later on I felt a tingling on my lip. I woke up this morning to a swollen lip and a cold sore. Is my boyfriend at a serious risk for genital herpes? I am worried sick.
