Risk of herpes after unprotected oral

Hi I am a male in my twenties and five days ago I received unprotected oral sex from a girl on Tinder. I noticed afterwords on her tinder profile picture that she had a cold sore but I don't know if she had a cold sore at the time I received oral because it was dark. This was my first time receiving oral sex and I had not previously done anything sexual so I do not have any history of STIs. About four days after the unprotected oral I got a runny nose for part of the day. It is now day five and I have a dry throat and a cough. I also noticed some very small scab like dots on the area right where my penis and scrotum connect but they don't hurt and I don't have any pain while urinating or any discharge. What are the chances I got an STI or more specifically oral herpes

Also, my scrotum has been a little bit itchy today. Another thing that is weird but may be unrelated is that I washed the towel I used for showering two days ago and dried, but today it smelt very bad and moldy. My roommates towel which sits next to mine also smelled moldy and our bathroom also smelt moldy so I also wonder if maybe I got some fungal infection but I think this is probably just from not ventilating our bathroom enough

1) symptoms doesnt sound like herpes
2) if you have blisters then u might have herpes
3) if not, highly likely u dont have herpes as most ppl have symptoms.
4) oral sex is a risk for herpes. Go get a test if u want

Do you think it could just be a cold then or do you think it could be a different STI?

Sounds more like a cold.
Your risk for any sti is very low, some are zero.
