I think you are not on line at this time. I am sending this response based on your primary description. Considering the location of bump/sore and its onset after fever is suggestive of the possibility of cold sore. The cold sore is also known as fever blisters or oral herpes which is caused by Herpes Simplex Virus type 1 (HSV-1). It is a very common infection and can be transmitted by a direct contact of blisters, kissing, or oral-genital contact. As far as the transmitting to other body parts is concerned, it is possible to transmit it to other areas such as eye, genitalia, or hand, but this is not that common. Also, the risk of transmitting this infection to other body parts is higher during primary outbreaks because antibodies that developed after primary infection, in most cases, are able to present this kind of infection. If you are thinking about transmitting it to other person, then the risk is higher during the outbreaks. In asymptomatic phase, the risk of transmitting it to other person is very low but not zero. You can read more about it from these link:
