Angular Cheilitis or Cold Sore? (urgent)

http://imgur.com/RkSspNs,QDDPYw9,pzXHaoH#0

I have a date with my girlfriend tonight and I need to be absolutely sure that I'm not going to infect her with herpes virus. I've definitely had this before but surprisingly I've never looked into diagnosing the condition, that's why I was scared when I found out cold sores often reoccur in the same place they've showed up before, In my case only on the corners of my mouth. I don't think I have a cold sore, I'm 90% sure that this is Angular Cheilitis, but can someone please confirm?

Its impossible to confirm based on that picture. The only way to be certain would be to do some lab tests.

I think you are correct in assuming that it is only cheilitis, but like I said its impossible to know from just a picture.
