Soon lymph nodes in my neck and groin became swollen
, and several days later I developed a fever. I then awoke one morning unable to swallow without severe discomfort, my gums were tender and red, and I discovered one small lesion near my left tonsil and one on my hard palate. These symptoms faded over the next few days. I then developed what appeared to be two cold sores on my inner lip
. Days later, I found one painless yet ulcerated, small lesion on the inside of my labia.
