can I catch genital herpes from my fever blister

I performed oral sex and remembered the next day I had a small fever blister on my upper lip. It was pretty dried up. I take Valtrex for fever blisters and had taken it earlier that week /fever blister was asymptomatic. I also later that same night had intercourse. Can I get genital herpes from this? It has been 9 days.

You should avoid oral sex when you have active cold sores.  You could transmit HSV-1 genitally to your partner, even though taking the Valtrex probably reduces this somewhat.  I highly doubt you could acquire genital HSV-1 from this exposure.  Since you have HSV-1 orally, you are pretty much immune to getting it genitally and it is unlikely in the manner you describe anyway.  Hope this helps.
Best,
Em
