In brief: Cold sores

Initial symptoms may be more severe than just cold sores.
Fever, lymphadenopathy, malaise, and rash of the affected area. This is usually more common in children and infants and sometimes is mistaken for a bad teething episode. Secondary infections are almost always cold sores.
