no, it's not a silly question, and no, I do not think that you need to tell anyone that you had a cold sore on your lip when you were a child. there are other causes of cold sores than HSV.
if it has not recurred I would let this be, but it recurs it would be worth getting it looked at, but as for now, rest easy.
does this make sense?
what are other causes of cold sores?
apthous ulcers for one
though HSV is very common
oh okay. But you don't feel its necessary to disclose this or bring this up when dating someone?
impetigo is a bacterial infection that can cause mouth sores/lip sores.
