Cold . Cold sores or fever blisters are caused by herpes simplex virus type 1 (hsv-1) and are extremely common. Most people become infected as an infant or small child when kissed or by sharing eating utensils with an adult who has the virus. The virus is most contagious when someone has a cold sore, but can still be passed along by someone who does not. Many people do not even know that they are infected because the virus can "hide out" in the nerve cells for very long periods of time - for some people it hides out forever and they never get a cold sore. For others, the virus can "wake up" and that's when a cold sore happens. No one knows exactly what causes a cold sore to appear - sometimes stress, illness, fevers, colds, sunlight, cold weather, menstruation, certain foods, allergies, you name it! they usually last 7-10 days and are more of an annoyance than a danger unless you have a weakened immune system or contract a bacterial infection on top of the cold sore. Genital herpes is typically caused by herpes simplex type 2 (hsv-2) and can only be spread via sexual contact with an infected person. The bad news is that you can get an hsv -1 infection in the genital area from oral sex. The good news is that 80% of the population have been exposed to it and have antibodies to hsv-1 that will help protect them. Your girlfriend has already been exposed (by kissing you) and you already have hsv-1, so both of you likely have antibodies and so have a low likelihood of causing genital infections with hsv-1.

If I have a cold sore thats going away and I performed oral sex on my girlfriend for 8 seconds, will she get genital herpes?

She can. There's no way to tell now if she will, but it is possible, even if the lesions are "healing." i would suggest that she contact a health care provider right away and request a rx for acyclovir. This interferes with viral replication, and could, at least in theory, prevent her from developing herpes. Always abstain from contact until your lesions are entirely healed, just to be safe.
