Oral Herpes? (pictures)

9 posts in this topic

I hope someone can help calm my fears, although I'm sure I'll find out eventually...but maybe if I find out, I can get some OTC medication. I am worried that I might have oral herpes, or the start of them. A little over a month ago I had sex with a guy (and same guy once before that too, a couple weeks before that). Wondering if he happened to have oral herpes and if that's what I am experiencing on my lips now. Here are some pictures. Also inside my mouth too...I'm not sure what is going on. I'm going to see my doctor on Thursday because I am on some new medication so am wondering if I have the start of herpes or possible a side affect.

And I have no idea what's going on in my mouth.....

To me it doesn't look like oral herpes. Could it be something bacterial or yeast? If you go to the Doctors and show them your tongue, I believe they will tell you it's nothing and don't worry about it. Just my opinion. As for your upper lip, I'm not sure what's going on there. I'm curious do you have any burning or tingling going on? I'm not sure what the doctors would say about your upper lip though.

Let us know how your doctor's appointment goes on Thursday, I'm curious.

Hi Jewel, thanks for your reply. I went to the doctor's and she said she didn't know what it was.

Blah. I continue to have burning on my lips at times, and my sore throat feeling, as well as the bumps on my mouth.

I'm really worried that I have an std. I was tested right before I had sex with that guy for stds and I did not have any then. So now I'm worried that I may have something.

Those red dots on the back of your tongue are normal. Everybody has them.

Those bumps on your top lips doesn't look like herpes at all. It is probably fordyce spots or it may be a wart.

Oral Herpes

Have your doctor run a HSV culture on the spot and it will tell you if it is herpes or not.

Hi Marie, I don't know whether you still have the symptoms but I know that when I have a coldsore OB I don't get a single coldsore but the burning/tingling sensation you describe across the lips. Sometimes my lips get chapped and tight and then return to normal while other times it feels like the entire affected area is oozing. All I can say is that Carmex is my hero haha.

Hopefully it was all nothing :D

      St. John's Wort is really well studied.  There is proof of SJW enhancing the regeneration of nervous tissue.  There's a reason it's called a "nervine".   Herpetic episodes are hot and of the nerves.  SJW happens to cool the inflammation and help regenerate the nerves.      Dr.Halford has been studying HSV for 27 years and he acknowledges that herpes causes neuralgia.

      Im  very happy that ur disclosure went well. I was diagnosed 15 yrs ago when there was no info and Internet was just starting.  They armed u with a pamphlet. I got it from a long term relationship of 14 yrs. The person I lost my virginity to. We had broken up and I just met my now ex husband. I told him and he said he didn't care because he loved me. We were married for 15 yrs. He never had ob and he won't get tested now for his future partners. I did disclose to another person and he was also fine with it. I gave him information and he loved me also. After he and I ended things I got tested and asked for everything to be done. Everything came back negative. So I thought I might have been missed diagnosed. I had such mild ob that sometimes they were just irritation. I got involved with a very nice man 8 months ago and about a week ago I thought I was having a outbreak. I freaked out. The std test came back negative. I didn't tell my bf because there was nothing to tell in the beginning because I thought I was negative. Well I told my bf that I as possibly having a outbreak and was confused and the whole story and he said he cared about me but couldn't deal with it. I didn't find out until the next day that std tests don't test for herpes. I am devastated and heart broken. I don't know if I will trust anyone again. I feel terrible guilt if I gave this to him. I hope that maybe after some time he might see that I didn't mean to break his trust.  Good luck with ur disclosure to ur husband.

      I was diagnosed via IGG during routine testing 2 months ago. I've never had a traditional outbreak in the sense that I've never experienced a blister or lesion. I'm about 3 weeks into my first bottle of Valtrex 500mg daily suppressant because my current boyfriend is H negative and I want to decrease transmission risk.  I can't tell if its psychological or physical, but I have been experiencing a constant burning sensation similar to a UTI/yeast infection in terms of pain. I have no idea if this is H related or not, but if it is... fuck, I'd rather have outbreaks a few times a year than this constant burning. What do I do? Help me. My abusive ex gave this to me. He had it, and he lied to me. Didn't take any protective measures. He wanted to trap me or lower my self-esteem or make me less desirable to every man who he was convinced was going to steal me away. Toward the end of the relationship he raped me. I can't have this constant burning reminder. I will die.

      Yes it is all fine, you cannot autoinnoculate yourself. No need for concerns on that. As mentioned, hundreds of people have been here with the same query but it has not happened to a single person I can recall.

      can I spread it to myself if i currently dont have a cold sore and i havent had one in like a month? lets say i were to just touch my lips and then another object and then that object were to touch my private area, could i then spread it? at least what is the likelihood that ill reinfect myself, thank you for answering my initial question. ive only had coldsores for about 4 months, is that enough time to have an immune defense against autoinoculation?

      I think part of what is going on for you if the stress that you are causing yourself because he wouldn't have constant headaches purely from the herpes.  And it's important to note that not everyone has severe symptoms so if you pass it on to someone they might not even have any symptoms which a lot of people don't because if they have a really strong immune system and positive attitude towards it it really doesn't affect your life.   And if a person has oral HSV 1 anyway they have some immunity and if they caught it they would probably have no symptoms and there are many people with HSV 1.

      The way in which you believe that you may have spread it to another part of your body is simply illogical because you're actually in an environment where there is water so it is not direct contact

      I have been on this website for 7 years and have met thousands of Herpsters and I know that autoinoculation is a common fear, but please believe that it really never happens. Even if you did pass hsv2 to your mouth you will probably never have another outbreak and it is almost impossible for you to give it to someone else from that location. You WILL be ok, please believe that. JB

      Yes, that is the most updated thread on Halford

      I believe this blog is the precursor to this website. I just check to see if the site has gone live every so often. Crossing my fingers every time I do.
