Thanks for the support. I have no symptoms just found out from a routine blood test. Could the tests be wrong? I don't see the doctor till Thursday so my anxiety between now and then is super high.

I don't know what test it was and I was told I was positive for both HSV1 and HSV2.

Hmmm its difficult if your having no symptoms and dont know what the test was...Cant you contact your doctor and find out what it was as there are a few tests which might give false results. How long before you had your blood test was your encounter?

I don't know I dated 4 men that I've slept with who told me they were STD free and we didn't use protection. So I have no idea how long it was since my exposure and my test. I get tested every year and last year I was not positive.

Its hard, some people might have no symptoms and some might have blisters etc...If I were you I would get another blood test, ask for a western blot as people say this is the best test to get.

That is so helpful. I'll ask the doctor on Thursday to order that test for me. Thank you very much.

Panic Attacks

Is it normal to have panic attacks and trouble sleeping when you are first diagnosed?

      Your symptoms and photos match exactly what I've been dealing with on and off since October 2018 after I had a a really bad flu that brought about tingling on my lips. It felt like a cold sore was going to develop, but a bunch of tiny white bumps showed up that doctors have yet to fully explain what it is. I also have a constant feeling of a dry, chapped upper lip. A few weeks later the white tongue showed up. I'm also currently dealing with a change in taste in my mouth. I eventually tested positive fro HSV1 months later, but I don't know where on my body it is. I also have discoloration on my the tip of my penis. One dentist told me I had bacteria covering my tongue, and another dentist said nothing looked suspicious. I also get the cut on my tongue.  Prepare yourself for a journey of doctors telling you that you look normal when, in fact, you do not.

      @CheekyMunkey there is absolutely no way you, me or anyone has any chance of diagnosing what issues inside the mouth might be. There are simply too many issues that create similar looking outcomes. All I can say is that issues inside the mouth are way, way less likely to be related to herpes compared to if you were having issues on the lips.

      Hi mate.  Thank you for responding. I do feel better but I think the oral might be the issue. I was looking at my tongue and it looks white. Well whiter than normal. Also about 3 days ago I had a really sharp pain in my tongue which lasted like seconds. Later in the day when I saw it it had like a line cut into it. Is it a lesion? I have no pain in my tongue at all, no fluid filled sores but I noticed that Its shape isn't right. Like a bits missing on the tip of the right hand side. I've added two pics. It looks whiter in the pics then it actually is but I noticed red dots all down near the tip. Could that be something? Herpes? Also, where the tongue goes out of shape there is nothing on that side. I did burn my mouth on some pizza on the day I felt that sharp pain so not sure if that's got something to do with it.  https://ibb.co/zhphnMD https://ibb.co/G0pPRLh Thanks in advance.

      Personally, I'm still wondering how likely is it China will cure HSV before the States does ?...
