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

      @fixme1Correct. He is creating a preventative. Sure could've used that about six months ago. What I'm praying for is a cure for the already infected. I want this thing out of me.

      Hi all,  Any fellow hsv2 suffers experience constant prodome (tingling in penile region) and pain in (right) testicle also feels hot/warm there ?  Not sure if this is herp related or something else?  Any advice ?

      I directly relate my sciatica to an impending OB as that is the only time I have a problem. If I am fighting the OB the sciatica will stick around until either the OB flares up or disappears. Makes sense as that is the area where the virus hides out. I have learned from my own experiences if my body is stressed because it is working on another issue the HSV will become the predominant problem. I used to believe HSV was the root of the problems. Now I understand it is the indicator that my chemistry is off balance or dealing with something else. Good reason to keep myself on track to keep my body in a position to fight back so I don't have to. HSV is my health barometer! It sounds like your body is dealing very well with the HSV under normal conditions. Nasty to get poison ivy with such similar symptoms to HSV you get a double whammy! I truly Hope that resolves quickly for you!

      Hopefully if it comes out in one country it will get licenced for use in other places too? I think the main thing is that someone somewhere develops the capability as that's the starting place.  Can someone just clarify for me: Is this for use for HSV1 initially?  If so will that be both oral and genital? Thanks Lucy

      Yea, but... this is in Germany. How does that help us here in the USA?

      It's great to have this site to ask these personal question though! i hope it has rested your mind Hayitsmay, I have always been cautious about passing my friendly H on from a dirty towel. It makes me panic if a friend needs a shower and wants to borrow a towel, I start worrying in case I never washed then at a high enough temperature to kill the H virus. These posts have helped me on my understanding, thanks WilsonInAus

      Put it this way the way people contract genital herpes is thru sex or oral sex ie a person with a cold sore give you oral sex and infected you with genital herpes.  You can however contractor infections through contaminated toilet

      Hes developing a preventative vaccine too isnt he. That will effectively stop the spread. If that is achieved then it will be like many other vaccines we get to stop us getting.illness which is what will irradicate hsv
