Recommended Posts

postivelove30

Me again...what a rollercoster this is....so i finally figured out how to stop the itchying with benedryl and baking soda...and all the lesions and wounds are healed over...but I still LOOK a mess! The sores are healed but I dont remember any "crusting". they just kinda turned red and it looks like scars everywhere. AND NOW I have little red DOTS everywhere even down my thighs a little bit. Theyre not raised, just little red dots - ive had these before in other places and my mom has a lot of them....am i having another outbreak or is this beacuse I'm on my period or is it still healing or is there something I should be doing?? I dont want to be left scared and gross looking! PLZ help.....

I'm also starting to get a little burny....OH I'm on day 3 of suppressive meds, 400mg twice a day....

I'm going to try cough medicine and baking soda like you have - after my current dressing of tea tree oil and honey has seemed to run its course.

I hope you figure out what those spots were and that they aren't herpes virus breaking out in new places.

I never said cough meds - i said benedryl tablets - its just an allergy pill. I take one or two of those, then put the baking powder and water mixture on the skin....

Oh I see.

I'd heard elsewhere that cough mixture mixed with baking powder was effective. - First stinging a bit, then numbing down and permitting a night's rest. I thought your plan was similar, so upon hearing it the second time I thought it must be a good thing to try.

I thought Benadryl was an American cough syrup.

So allergy tablets work as well? Excuse my ignorance.

Oh - right, I forget different countries post here...yeah im american and i meant benadryl, which are tablets taken orally and they are just an anesthamine. They help.

      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 ?...
