Patient :Hello. The other day my lips felt dry and at times I would feel a burning and I'd apply my chapstick. I ended up having sex that night and had oral as well. I woke up this morning and my lips were dry but, the burning feeling is worse. I've had cold sores in the past and I was told that I could only spread that to the genital region if I had a open wound on my lip. I didn't see nor feel a bump with the burning feeling the other day and I don't see a bump now. My lips are irritated though because I pick the dead skin off. My question is should I be worried because I had sex last night?
