Answer

If you are not infected with herpes simplex virus, then you cannot experience lesions (oral/genital) associated with HSV infection. Regardless, I can't tell you what is going on with you. You need to rely on a medical professional, in person, to explain test results and symptoms that you experience. There is little reason to make a visit to a doctor if you are experiencing cold sores (or something like it), but that is ultimately up to you.
