cold sore in new places on lip.. does virus migrate?

2 posts in this topic

Usually have outbreak on upper right side of lip, last winter started having them on bottom right side for the first time.. today i got a ob on the bottom left side of lip..

They are painless tiny blisters... Does the virus migrate? How after 5 years of remembrance do i have cold sores for the first time on the right side of my mouth?

I'm using the Herpotherm (hotkiss) and i'll let you all know how it works out.. It totally stopped one of my obs that i could actually feel the tingling of.

I wonder if, when you stifled that outbreak, the virus got slick and decided to pop up in a new spot? Given that HSV travels down nerve bundles and the outbreaks occur at nerve endings, it is logical that a sore could pop up at a different nerve ending than the usual one. But I see your point about it not following it's usual pattern. Just goes to show this virus is tricky. I know for me I get sores in the same spots usually, but every now and then a sore will pop up on a different spot on my vagina or anus.

    • Some Things I Wish I Knew When I was First Diagnosed
      THANK YOU BEYONCE!!! Now in December will be a year and it's just been a roller coaster full of emotions for me.  You not only educated me but brought tears of joy and hope.  I have not been able to build courage and open up to ANYONE to talk about my condition.  I just found this forum a few days and decided to write today.  My case it that I get really extra itchy before my period and I think I'm gonna have an OB.  I've been moody lately and I think this is not helping me. I've been taking Valtrex daily and started lysine.  I'm definitely trying the free oil today.  Anyway, I want you to know that I value all your information specially knowing that the chances of transmitting H to my partner is minimal.  I didn't know this.  I just have been avoiding sex as much as possible and this has been hurting my relationship.  After reading your post I have high hope that my life will sooner rather than later be back to normal XOXO

      I have a doctors appointment on Thursday and i will try to get them to prescribe me Gabapentin or Amiptriptline, see if either of them work. Knowing these stupid doctors they will just say "ibuprofen" like last time..
    • Numbness??

    • oral herpes?
      Thanks for the replies guys Eh kinda yeah, sometimes the tips of my tounge get little red spots while inside my upper and lower lip will get like non painful blisters but theyl have yellow heads? Don't think there canker either! They come and go too. My top lip also heats up anytime I grind my teeth along it (without noticing I do it) small bumps then start to form but go down after say an hour? Pretty strange the way it activates then goes again? I aslo have this sane blister I spoke about with the yellow head on my inner top lip since late September, its flat there's no raise from it, doesn't hurt hasn't changed shape nor colour but its still there, I check almost every day and its never disperad! Anyone any ideas or advice? Constantly worked about oral or kissing my bf because its never left my inner lip after months!
