Did I get oral herpes from oral sex?

Yesterday, I performed oral sex on a man. Today, I have what look like little pimples on the corner of my mouth. They’re sore, so I’m wondering if they might be herpes.

Are these peach-colored bumps inside my mouth herpes?

I have peach-colored bumps on the inside of my cheeks that were diagnosed as herpes. I’ve had them for over five weeks, and they haven’t gotten any better or worse. Is five weeks an unusually long time to have open herpes sores?

I think I have genital herpes...can I treat it with my oral herpes medication?

I’m a 21-year-old female and I’ve only had one sexual partner my whole life. We have been having sex monogamously for about a year now and we use a condom about 90% of the time. I get herpes outbreaks on my mouth and sometimes my nose when I’m sick or under a lot of stress. I haven’t had an outbreak for about six months. Today I noticed a very small pinkish bump on the inside of my vaginal lip. It only hurts when I press on it really hard, but I’m scared it could be herpes. I have a prescription for acyclovir for my oral herpes. Would this work to get rid of the bump on my vaginal lip?
