Cold sore virus: It could be herpangina or gingivostomatitis. Herpangina is often caused by the hand-foot-mouth virus (coxsackie virus) & can cause a lot of pain from sores at the back of the throat usually have a high-fever with this. Gingivostomatitis is most often caused by herpes type 1 virus, and these sores are more often around the lips and oral mucosa closer to your mouth. Strep is a possibility as well.See 2 more doctor answers
See below: Cold sores are caused by the herpes simplex virus 1. Over half our population gets cold sores. Another 25% of our population has this virus but never gets the symptoms. They appear on average about a week after exposure and can last up to three weeks. This virus stays in the body even after the acute outbreak is over. Once the virus enters the body, it never leaves.

Should I take a friend that's been sick for a few days to a clinic or er? Cold, sore throat, back pain 4 days.
Yes: If you feel your friend needs to see a doctor they probably should. Try to avoid the er unless the symptoms are a lot worse than you seem to suggest. Your friend will certainly not feel better if they have to wait for hours to be seen while more urgent problems are being dealt with.See 1 more doctor answer
Hi Doctor. When I swallow the right side of my throat hurts and nowhere else, just right side. I have herpes 1 but no cold sores. Can it be that?
Started with cold sore on cheek, sore on roof of month, feel like sores in throat now painful red dots on tip of my tongue.
Could be serious: This sounds like an innocent disease called herpangina from a virus that mostly affects children. And it is possible you have it, if you are exposed to children. However, you are 62. At this age some other more serious things could be happening and I would urge you to see a clinician soon. Meanwhile for comfort you can use warm salt water gargles and Tylenol. Good luck!
First cold sores they are covereing my bottom lip and half the top throat hurts, gums hurt, cankor sores, all over. Can't eat. I'm miserable. Help?
Stomatitis: If this is your first time with cold sores, this initial phase is called primary herpetic gingivostomatits. It is usually accompanied with a low grade fever and will last 10-14 days. I would recommend seeing your dentist for information about this and the chance of recurring cold sores. A prescription for an antiviral medicine could also aid when the tingling begins at the onset of a cold sore.See 2 more doctor answers
