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. :(

      OK sir, let me explain so even you can understand. When I speak of inaccessibility, I'm referring to the immune system; i.e. In general, the immune system does not enter cells and kill viruses. Further, because the herpes virus resides in the neuronal cells, the immune system wont kill those cells (for obvious reasons) to clear the virus. The end result is that the virus is inaccessible by the immune system and the virus remains for life. My statement is/was accurate.

      Well guys, i had the talk... and it went even worse than I thought. He refused to talk to me in person, so I had to do it through text. He said “well I’ve never had symptoms, so I’m not getting tested. You work in the medical field, you probably paid someone to fabricate those test results to try to trap me into a relationship. I will have no further contact with you” ... and then he blocked me from everything. And THEN less than 24 hours later, messaged my old room mate asking her to come over for a beer and movie night.  HES DISGUSTING!! I was considering taking legal action against him, because with his total lack of sympathy, and the fact that he tried to sleep with my friend less than 24 hours after I told him, I think he knew he had it and just didn’t care... so I messaged his ex on Facebook to see if She knew he had it. She wasn’t sure but she is definitely going to get tested now... she told me he is an extreme narcissist and emotionally manipulates people. ... after doing my research, it all makes sense.    So since hes not sorry, I decided to do some type of revenge. I reported him for fishing without a license, and having a trailer with no tags. I’m not sure if he got cited or not, but the cops definitely investigated... because about an hour after my complaint I got 4 consecutive calls from a blocked number less than a minute apart.... he was angry and trying to reach me.    Im just devastated that he did this to me and doesn’t even care. He lead me to believe he cared about me

      Well you’re nearly there. As you say you can’t patent a natural substance such as vitamin C. Anyone can use it and develop their own product.  Nothing stopping this with your mushroom then!

      @WilsoInAus Another display of ignorance, here’s an example, vitamin c is found in nature, you cannot patent vitamin c, but you can make your own mixture of compounds where vitamin c is the pertinent substance and patent that mixture,  regardles though, the main ingredient is an extracted compound found in nature, or perhaps they synthesized a very close mimicking compound so yes you can patent naturally occurring compounds if you know how to make it original like the example I gave above
