is it spreading?

Recommended Posts


I recently had my oral herpes spread upward a little off of my lip and onto my face. I had never had it spread off of my lip but it did the breakout before this one...it didn't go up very much though...maybe halfway to my nose.

I didn't think too much of it--just a bad break-out I thought.

This outbreak I'm experiencing major itching inside of my nostril above that side of my lip...and my eye above that lip is itching too.

Is it possible it's spreading there too? Coincidence those parts are now itching? Is it just the nerves being aggravated? :(

It is possible - I have seen pictures with HSV OBs in a few places on the face...However, please do not worry about these just because you feel some itching...When we worry and become obsessed with herpes, we can feel itching or tingling everywhere....These nerves are connected - it's like when you have a toothache - all teeth hurt. I wish you that your OB doesn't spread any more and goes away and never comes back (this happens very often with HSV1)

It is possible that you have spread but I have also heard that just because you get it on your lip, the virus doesn't sit in the one spot on your lip. It can travel from the spinal cord where it houses itself to an area on your face. Alot of people can have it primarily on their lip but it can go on your cheek, notrils lips and so forth. So technically to have a sore in your nose you didn't "spread" it.

It can definitely spread. I have a huge one on my lower lip right now and this morning when I woke up I had a few tiny blisters below it going down my chin. :(

      So ur saying the herbalife was the key?? Olive leaf extract and pro biotic are good? How many mgs of Lysine did you take a day?

      hello all, update... so the white ulcer inside started around january 4... and today it is still there... no burning while i pee, just a constant mild irritation feel, no other symptoms i went back to get retested 2/12 so 2.5 months after exposure... including HSV, HIV, gon, chlam, everything came back negative... the doctor thinks it's some form of chlamydia, he gave my doxy for 10 days is it too soon to tell if i have HSV? is it possible to have an ulcer inside the urethra and be fungal or bacterial?

      Probably not many.  I'm going to change my twitter symbol to the copper ribbon at least.

      okay! I guess I will just start at the basic dosage of vitamin C and go up every week little ? I take 1500 mg of super lysine like the bottle says and it still gives me gas and diarrhea. hoping it will pass if not I'll drop down to 2 a day! I really appreciate the advice! i know we would all.do ANYTNING to not have OB  at the moment idc about stigmas od boyfriends or dating or sex....I just care about FEELING healthy in my own skin. this is my one and only life

      That sounds like a good place to begin.  The lysine worked really well for me for about a year and a half.  Then things got steadily worse for me and nothing worked until vitamin C.  My immune system is not that great even tho i take care of myself, so u may have good luck if u have a decent one.  With the vitamin c, u must 1) take it at intervals throughout the day, not all at once 2) dont increase the amount u r taking too fast 3) it will give u gas at higher doses and even diarrhea if u go crazy with it. These r signs to lower your dose!  If u can just control your OB's with vitamin c and lysine or anything else, maybe a cure will finally become available.
