I'm 26 years old, and came into contact with someone who may have had a cold sore, right under their bottom lip, 2 weeks ago.. 1 week later, I got an itch under my lip, and noticed an ingrown hair at the site, and popped it and straightened the hair out... Since then, this yellow fluid bubble has kept forming, and I have kept popping it. The skin around it is a red scab, probably from the friction of popping it. But even when left alone, like at night, I still feel a stinging.... This has gone on for a week. To add to it, in the last 3 days I have been feeling sick. I've been feeling very hot and feverish but no actual fever, getting bad headaches at night, and have felt slightly tingly around my palms.
Could this be my first outbreak of hsv1? And is a yellow fluid bubble a characteristic of a cold sore?
Thank you very much for the opinions, I'm trying to figure out why I'm sick, and very scared of the fact I may have contracted hsv1.
