I had oral sex last week. 5 days later I got a cold sore on my lip and a sore throat. Should I be worried or is this just another HSV-1 outbreak?

In brief: Sounds like HSV-1

common cold sore- usually localized only to the mouth and lips area.
If you have genital sores you need to be screen for STDs.
