It's quite possible, especially if she was on the verge of an outbreak. It could also be a zit. Someone got HSV-2 orally from me before I knew I had it. His symptoms were the flu and an extremely sore throat. No sores outside his mouth.
yea I didn't have a sore throat or any flu like symptoms just a thing on the outside of my face, but now I have this pimple looking thing on my gums it doesn't hurt or anything could that be herpes also?
