Is it HSV 1?

Recommended Posts

phoenix79

I have had HSV 2 for about 3 years now, with fewer than 3 outbreaks a year.

I recently kissed a new guy. 8 days later my lip swelled, and I got a little bump. It never turned into a full blown blister. It went away quickly, but my nose felt very itchy for days after.

I have gotten another serology test to find out if I have now gotten hsv 1 as well, but am waiting on the results. I have not had any other sores, but my face has been itchy for all the while now. Not just my lips. My chin, and my nose. I am also highly concerned I spread it to my eyes.

Any insight form anyone would be greatly appreciated. I'm struggling here, feeling like a walking herpes virus.

if you have hsv 2 first i doubt if you would get hsv 1,, type 2 is stronger strain of the two and i would think it would protect yu to some degree of getting type 1,, but i guess anything is possible..?

I wouldn't say type 2 is stronger, it is just different. I wouldn't expect the antibodies for type 2 to protect you from type 1 much better than the antibodies for type 1 protect against type 2. I would expect you to have a less severe initial outbreak if you get an oral hsv1 infection following a genital hsv2 infection however.

There is still the chance, though slight, that you have HSV2 in the oral area, rather than HSV1. It is possible.

Of course in that case, a blood test could be misleading.

Thanks for your answers. I have thought that I may have spread type 2 to my face, but I don't think so.

I barely had any "sore".

I guess I will know more after the blood test, but I am convinced it is type 1. What I don't understand is why my mouth has been hurting pretty much non-stop since the occurrence, but I have not developed any sore. Does anyone know if it is normal for pain to ALWAYS be present?

      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 ?...
