In brief: Possibly

Blister-like lesions in your throat may be herpes, but more likely to be due to coxsackie virus infection causing a condition known as herpangina.
Herpes simplex has the potential to produce lesions anywhere in the respiratory tract, but outside of the mouth it would be very unusual in a person who is not immune suppressed.
