Oral Herpes

I have always gotten cold sores on my lips at least 3 times a year since I can remember. About two weeks ago I had oral sex w/ a man. It probably lasted less than a minute. For the last week my lips felt really chapped and burned. Now I have a breakout of blisters on my lips. I think I have had this condition before, but I am not sure. Could this be herpes? Like I said, I have gotten cold sores before. If you think it's herpes, do you think it's the same type that I used to get before, or could it be caused by the contact I had weeks ago. Thanks.

No reason to suspect that this is hsv2 orally from performing oral sex on someone if that is what you were thinking. You have a history of cold sores and the irritation from performing oral combined with chapped lips very well might've triggered a recurence of it. If you aren't sure if this is a cold sore or not, see your provider today or tomorrow for further evaluation.
