Hello- cold sores are caused by certain strains of the herpes simplex virus (hsv). Oral sex can spread hsv-1 to the genitals and hsv-2 to the lips. Once you've had an episode of herpes infection, the virus lies dormant in nerve cells in your skin and may emerge as another cold sore at the same place as before. You need to consult a doctor for help immediately.
