Canker sore & swollen lips

Hello everyone,
Few days ago , A prostitute kissed me on lips and few hours later I started feeling tingling/itchy lips .A week later I had canker sore in my mouth and my lips are slightly swollen . Do you think it is a case of herpes ? It appears to be healing but I am extremely worried . Any ideas  ?

odds are it's from something she had on her lips. lip plumping lipsticks can cause reactions in folks as can cinnamon flavored gum and such.

Hi

If you do have HSV-1 then you probably had it before this counter.  Swollen lips aren't STD related.
