Herpes on tongue? Picture attached.

5 posts in this topic

Hello,

Just tonight I noticed lots of little "blister" looking bumps on the very back of my tongue. In the photo you can see the few big ones I'm talking about, and then there are lots of little ones that seem to go right down into my throat until I can't see anymore.

What do you all think? I'm going to see a doctor tomorrow but just wondering if you think I've caught herpes (or some other STD) in my mouth? I'm pretty upset about it. :(

Thanks.

Sorry, for some reason I can't see the photo....

But if they are BUMPS on the very back of your tongue, it sounds to me like they are your taste buds. I would recommend you Google "taste buds" and it will show you the placement of them on your tongue. Some are bigger than others.

See if that may resolve your question? I hope I have helped.

Thanks to the both of you for replying. I went and saw the doctor today and he wasn't concerned at all, just gave me some doxycycline saying it looked a little inflamed and he didn't want it to get infected. I guess this is what happens when you don't know the interior of your mouth and then go looking inside in the mirror.

Happy that it all worked out for you! No one is able to diagnose anyone over the internet so happy you went and seen your doctor, awesome!!

      Yeah, it's so funny how people think/feel.  My boyfriend used to mock people openly who had it.  He then contracted it from me, and had to become tolerant and educated.  You never know what life is going to throw at ignorant people.   You're awesome for trying to break the stigma.  I'm with you in spirit.

      It gets stranger. I've had four Iggs. First 1.77. Second 1.50 but I'd taken suppressives for a few days. Two other times while on suppressant at 1.30 and 1.65. Never had an ob and can't get swab. My doctor who is an infectious disease specialist wants me to take western blot as does Terri Warren.

      1) you know that condoms don't always prevent transmission. 2) you cannot assume the other people already have it based on statistics. That's unreasonable and unfair.  "It seems dumb to subject 'myself'..." Key word there "myself". You're only thinking of subjecting yourself to harm and not the other person involved during sex. You know why you're not wanting to disclose, and it's because you fear rejection and the end of your sex life. Rejection is hard and sex is fun. Tough shit. Man up and deal with your situation first. Even if you do have it doesn't mean the end of sex dude. Get real. If you truly believe those statistics you mention, then statistically you will find someone who knows they also have it, or even someone who doesn't give a shit that you do. The first person I met afterwards was positive for hsv-2..and super hot. The second person doesn't care. To be honest, if a hot girl told me up front she had it i might keep my distance for a while until I got to know her, maybe until I fell in love, but it wouldn't stop me from pursuing her. That's the way everyone should be about sex and relationships anyway. Instead, people these days are going around f*ckn everything in sight and then complaining about having a kid, or being single in their 30s, or divorced in their 20s, etc. It's because they're not entering relationships like they should, and because everyone is so focused on sex first.  Yeah, you're in a shitty position. But the right thing to do is abstain from sex until you have a difinitive answer. That's it. Very simple concept. No sex, no worries of transmission. Work to get a diagnosis first man. Bang it out later. You don't wanna end up tied to any of those college girls anyway. You may end up having to spend time with them outside of sex and thats a nightmare. They're clueless about everything except...nm, it's just everything.

      Having a conversation with someone and trying to provide information to break the stigma. Referred to as deadly, tough day for this gal.

      Hmm. Interesting. 1.77 is low so probably really reads like a negative result. My IGG was >5. Eeek. The blood tests are confusing. What I've been told and read seem to be different. Igm I was told  my doctor's office is the history of the antibodies in the body of both HSV 1 and 2. Igg is when the antibody is most recently detected or exposure has taken place. I was tested over 12 weeks after my so calle exposure so it should be accurate. My doctor said I could be retested again which I will likely do in December.

      SureWhyNot has it right--look at your diet, alcohol/coffee intake, sleep, stress factors, excessive sunlight, and exercise routine.  Whole body healing, mind, spirit, and body, may be your answer here.  Probiotics for the yeast issues (I had issues with yeast since my diagnosis, probiotics worked wonders).   I have had HSV-2 for a while (I think, lots of anti-bodies when diagnosed) and have only had one true outbreak of one lesion.  Just made it through a menstrual cycle with no issues.  I make myself and my health almost the number one priority in life, along with school and family.

      @second_chance, this is more of a suppresent than a "cure". Its supposedly better than current crop of.meds - varients of Acyclovir - at inhibiting the viruses to multiply thus reducing the days u shed virus and OBs. whatever i said is in layman's terms and I am no way qualified (no way near that smart) to answer in scientific way..
