I posted yesterday about oral sex and cold sores.
Thank you for your help on that, by the way. [Smile]

Well, I did some research about what cold sores are and where they come from, and I read that people usually get multiple cold sores. I also saw some pictures and what I have on my lip doesn't exactly look like the sore on my lip. The one on my lip looks like a little pimple actually. And the thing is, I keep getting them, one at a time. One will go away, and then like maybe a week later, another one will show up at a different spot on my lip.
Is there any reason to worry?

As always, Thanks for your help. [Smile]

If you don't know for sure if what you're seeing are cold sores -- and thus, oral herpes -- then you'll need to have your doctor take a look and let you know.

Obviously, you'll need to see him or her when you have an active sore, so your best bet might just be to call in, let them know you suspect you've got oral herpes, and have them prepared to see you for a very brief visit the next time you have an active sore.
