Yes, you may. As a matter of fact, more than half of genital herpes are caused by Type I herpes simplex virus, same virus causing 'cold sore' or 'fever blister.' In other words, genital herpes can be induced by auto inoculation (accidental touching of fever blister and genitalia). Your description, however, does not fit well to genital herpes.

It is unlikely that you have genital herpes. Why not go to the clinic and get checked out properly so that you can put your mind at rest. We can not diagnose this on the internet.
