Recurrent herpes redness on my lips? ?

So I have been using a lip balm that works really well against herpes. Whenever i get some redness or tingling I put some on and the symptoms go away, no sore appears. 

However my questions is this: would it still be safe to kiss my boyfriend after i apply said lip balm and the redness goes down? Or would it still be highly contagious? Although the lip balm seems to be working, I get this redness often, even when not exposed to my common triggers. Any solutions regarding whether it’s safe, and ways to decrease this redness?

    Once you get herpes you are always contagious
