Is this a cold sore via HSV-1?

I don't get cold sores and this is what I got 21 days post exposure

Can someone tell me if its a cold sore please.



Thank you in advance

We dont look at pictures because we cant diagnose here but herpes lip sores are blisters that scab over. what was your exposure?

exposure was deep kissing with someone then 2 days later very sore throat and conjunctivitis. then 21 days later after exposure  I get the blister on lip.

21 days is outside the first time outbreak window and 2 days is too soon and the sore throat would not be a symptom but the lips.

" and the sore throat would not be a symptom but the lips." please clarify this statement?
