Half the adult population in the US has oral herpes, including those without known cold sores. See a doctor ASAP for testing -- the sooner the better for accurate diagnosis. But don't worry much about it. Even if it's herpes, this probably won't be a big problem. Recurrent outbreaks are uncommon. ...Read more

There are other possible causes, like impetigo (bacterial infection of skin), Herpes infection, etc. See a Doc if persists. ...Read more

I have 3 sores on my chest that are red and are about an inch in diameter and have a crusty centre bit?

Also if you've been inside a hospital or other health care facility recently (we worry about MRSA infections). ...Read more
