PHG: You have many of the classic symptoms of primary herpetic gingivostomatitis. In short, that is how the herpes virus (the cold sore virus) manifests itself for the first time in your body. I would go see your physician, who can prescribe medications to help you manage the symptoms. Unfortunately, you can count on getting cold sores in the future!
