What does it mean to be positive for hsv-1

Patient: What does it mean to be positive for hsv-1. I know its the herpes cold sore simplex, but how traumatic is this? Is it normal, problematic or curable? My sisters has had cold sores around the cold season since we were kids, and I’ve never had a cold sore in my life. How bad is this?
