Hello and thank you for your question,
Based on what you described, it sounds like you have the herpes virus. Since you are under large amounts of stress
, your immunity decreases allowing yourself to becoming more prone to recurrent flare ups and infections. Therefore in all probabilities the sores are likely to be herpes.
If you have an eye infection
, keep your hands away from it. You can actually cause ocular contraction of the virus by touching the cold sore
, then rubbing your eye.
The best thing to do is to go to your doctor and be evaluated for the herpes simplex
virus. There are antivirals that can help prevent flare ups.
Hope I have answered your query. If you have any more questions I will be happy to answer them for you.
