Does your outbreaks on your lips or face ooze or pus?

8 posts in this topic

Does anyone here have outbreaks (OB's) that ooze a clear pus that turns yellow or goldish and crust over? Is that normal or do i have impetigo? That is what is going on with me. Soars that are oozing like that. They never hurt, but man do this ITCH!

Any feed back?

Sounds like it could be either, you should have it looked at by a dermatologist. Impetigo should be cleared rather easily with treatment.

It sounds like you should have your doctor take a look at it. It's possible you have a secondary infection.

Yup, thats exactly what mine usually do...and I've had oral H for 16 years so I think I would know, haha. My mom has it too and thats also what hers looks like. The sore should dry up within a few days, kind of scab over, and then fall off. If it's still like that for a long period of time (maybe 9-10 days) then I would get it checked out.

I was diagnosed with contact dermatitis most likely from poison oak. The stuff on my face never scabbed and actually is almost gone now in 4 days. I have it all over my body too. torso, legs, arms, foot, hand, fingers even. My dermatologist gave me prednisone to take for 1.5 weeks to stop my allergic reaction. I am taking benadryl for the itch and to help me sleep. I should get my blood test back tomorrow to verify I do not have herpes, but my Derm was insistent that I do not. Thank you all for advice and feedback. This is a very positive site. You are all doing a good thing here.

I am in the clear. I have poison ivy or oak or sumac. Not sure. It is already much better. Can't even see it on my face now. They gave me Prednisone, 40 mgs a day to combat my allergic reaction to it.

      I get acne in that area and around my thigh like this if I wear my compression shorts or dirty underwear after exercise with hard sweating for awhile. How old is your daughter and does she play any sports?

      Ok thank you Wilson, you have some what eased my mind so unless anything big  really happens for the time being will try to forget abt it.  I do know the mind is pretty powerful and can do crazy things.

      No cause for concern at all. HSV-1 is simply too common to worry about, what are you going to do if he has it and you don't for example? Those infected with HSV-1 genitally are usually left in little doubt, at best its a patch of sores that itch pretty badly!

      Otherwise u feel i shouldnt be concerned abt it in this moment and time?

      research halfords vaccine please, youre not up to date with whats available.

      Inside the mouth will more than likely not be herpes, just usual canker sores. This doesn't preclude you from having HSV-1. There is no real issue here. Without a desire to mutually test, then you are best putting it out of your mind. If you want to understand risks, then you need to mutually test, may as well for a range of STDs and explicitly request HSV, type specific for HSV-1 and HSV-2.

      I have never had a cold sore on the outside of my mouth that i can ever recall but have had them inside my mouth.

      There is no real reason for you to suspect genital herpes at all based on what you describe. Your partner has an oral HSV-1 infection most probably, it is very common. As such, he is immune from a genital infection so there is no need to be concerned on that front. Do you get oral cold sores?

      Im not even sure where to put this topic, i thinki may have genital herpes not exactly sure when i got it but my fiance of two years gave me oral sex abt 5 days after that he got a cold sore on his lip and i started getting vaginal irritation to my knowledge of what i can see i have had a red pimple like sore 2xs on the inside of my labia but off and on it feels tingly and burning sensation i honestly cant tell if i get myself worked up believing something is there or not, but can be there 1 minute and gone the next which goes on for a few days sometimes it feels sore but there is nothing there i have nvr seen an actual sore or blister ever.  This all started in may this year so i am not sure wat to think.  My fiance hasn't had any kind of symptoms on his genitals as of yet.  He says were sticking thru this and everything will be fine.  Wat do u all think. I can go to the dr. But im embarrassed and ashamed and if it is herpes i dont really want to take the antivirals. Please help or would like some good advice.

      Again him getting ghsv1 is low probability.  You already indicated your awareness of this in previous posts.
