I recently baught a vape pen too help quit smoking

Patient

Q: I recently baught a vape pen too help quit smoking. It had a leak so I took it back up to the shop to get looked at. The man that sold it to me said he probably "over primed" it and then proceed to take it apart blew into one of inside components. He then put it back together. And when he was done set it on the counter and I grabbed it and took a couple drags to test it out before leaving. My question is that if breathed in his saliva mixed in with the e-juice vapor, or even just the e juice alone could I develop lung herpes? I didn't notice any outbreak on his face. But then again I wasn't really paying any attention while I was there.
