Oral herpes always in same location?

Recommended Posts

totalregret

I was diagnosed with oral herpes - cold sores - in March. I have had four outbreaks always in a different location on my lips - top, bottom, left, right. Everyone I know always seems to get them in the same location. Is this normal? Do you always get your sores in the exact same location?

Right, but mine are always on a different location on my lips. Left bottom lip, right bottom lip, top right lip. Is that normal? My friends that get cold sores always have them in the exact same location on their lip.

For like ten years mine were always in the same spot on the right bottom corner of my lips. Then all the sudden they moved more towards the middle, and got bigger so when I get them now they go on to the skin too. It's gross. I think most people tend to get them in the same exact spot. But its not a big deal if you don't, it doesnt mean like the virus is worse or something. The nerves are close together so the OB's can move around.

Thanks. I was just worried that my oral was possibly caused by HSV 2 so that's why it was acting different? But, from what I read they both act the same in either location. I guess I'm just atypical...what's new.

      But you were probably also exposed to HSV-1,2,3,4,5,6ab,7,8. There are also about 80 other human viruses and you would have been exposed to a dozen of those. There are tens of different bacteria that also transmit during sexual activity. There are also hundreds of possible  causes generated with your body.

      The sad part is I was exposed to HSV 2 so judging by what information Im told, If I had herpes mine would almost definitely show up on an IGG test by now.  Supposedly I’d have less than an 8% chance of it not showing up on a blood test. All I can do is go off the information Im given.   My thing is this: I need to know what is causing this.  If the medical world wants to tell me that I dont have herpes, fine.  What is it that I have then? And how do I get rid of it? Otherwise, being negative for herpes means nothing to me.  Because Im still positive for something, and they cant even figure out what the hell it is! Because my body definitely changed after I was exposed to it.

      That’s incorrect for recent infections where it nears 100%. Those people have a positive swab.

      Herpes is not some default magic rabbit that comes out of the hat and makes sense out of the irrational.

      @RainyDay2 i am about to pull out the big bht guns. Hey if i can get rid of the symptoms forever and never blow positive, ill take it. My other thought was hpv but i know i was exposed. The last clinician i saw definitely thought my lip things looked herpetic and sajd she's seen urethral herpes before too.    Igg can be forever negative in some, i have heard hsv1 has less accuracy with igg
