Is it Allergies or Herpes?

Dear Dr. Rob:

I`m currently dating a woman who I think might have oral herpes.
She called me one day while she was on a short vacation and
mentioned that she had a fever blister. We talked about it a bit,
and she told me that the blister would be gone in about four
days, and it would generally come about when she tried a
new lipstick or lip-gloss. I could have sworn a cold sore remained
for about two weeks, and occurred a couple of times a year. She
refuses to see a doctor about this. I`m wondering if she actually
has herpes, or if she just misused the term fever blister for an
allergic reaction, which may be taking place. If she does, is
there anything I can protect her as well as myself.
Really wondering

Dr Rob’s Response:

Dear Really Wondering:

I can`t tell unless she is willing to get the test. It is possible
that the blister is secondary to an allergy to the lip products
she is using, but again the proof of the pudding is in the
Herpes Select Test.
