ehm question

Hi everyone,

well this is probably a ridiculous question, but I got diagnosed with hvs2 little over a month a go and so far have been asymptomatic ehm I think anyway. Well I guess like with everyone when they first find out, it has been hard, feeling stressed and crying all the time. Don't think I have had a good night sleep and apparently being stressed is the last thing you want to be.

Anyway so my question... early last week I developed a light stinging pain on my tongue but did not think to much off it, I only sometimes felt it when I ate or drank a hot beverage. Now I developed what looks like blisterlike red flat small peasized thingies for lack of a better word on the back of my tongue and on my temple, they are quit distinctive. Not alien bursting out of chest distinctive but hard to ignore they are there.

Now I will freely admit all this has left me feeling a bit paranoid and I do like spicy food. I know hsv2 is majority genital and oral lesions will be on the lip, rarely inside of the mouth, but apparently it is possible, maybe? They are really distinctive and it is uncomfortable to swallow. could it just be my love for spicy Indian food? I made an appointment with the doctor for tomorrow to get it confirmed but I don't really want to go as they have proved to be so clueless about it all.

So could it be a herpes outbreak? I can't believe I'm even asking this question, a month ago I would never even have considered that I would one day be wondering whether I was having an herpes outbreak on my tongue. Life is a constant journey I guess.

Thank you for your help.

It is uncommon within the mouth. And we do have to let the doctors sometimes stumble through their diagnosis of things. They don't always get it right the first time.

How were you diagnosed with HSV2? Was it a type-specific IgG blood test (very reliable), or just some nurse / doctor looking at it and saying "looks to me like herpes" (not very reliable).

Also bear in mind that it's possible you've had HSV for years and not known about it (some people don't experience symptoms for years, and many don't experience any at all).

It's also quite likely that these "thingies" you describe are nothing to do with herpes at all (their locations for one thing lead me to doubt it).

      @WilsoInAus thanks for the clarification. I am currently taking into account all possibilities that i might encounter, since my fiance is positive HSV-1. I am preparing myself for the future, if I however eventually get infected from him. Im on the brink . We will have an appointment with a Doctor on friday, to justify more about this and I am so anxious of knowing what the Dr will say. I am scare it might effect my decision of marrying him. How I wish this virus could be kill, how I wish life hasn't be this cruel to us. The day for us to tie the knot is just around the corner, everything had been prepared and we are tested with this news. Im showing my support to him right now but deep down, Im sooo scared. It's truly an adventure

      Note that it’s not an infection as we know it the eye, these are caused by bacteria. Sometimes though the virus will attack the cornea and cause issues. It is estimated about 1 in 50,000 people per year will suffer some vision impairment from HSV-1. However these people are almost always not treated with antivirals where success appears to be over 90% for preventing permanent damage.

      Hi @patpat I encountered same situation like yours. I really want to know what is your next step. Did you finally get married? How is your life now? Any advice?  I know this is an old thread but this is related to me. Would be so much relieve to be able to talk to someone in the same shoe. Hope you still buzzing around honeycomb

      BHT has helped me soooo much! When I first got infected my outbreaks were constant .. one would heal up and there comes another ... it was terrible . I was so fuxking depressed and miserable. I cut out the “trigger foods” took vitamin c and lysine .. drank apple cider vinegar .. nothing worked until BHT!!! Now that I take BHT i rarely have Outbreaks. If I do it’s because I sometimes forget and skip taking it .. or I eat some trigger food + forget the Bht .. but even then my outbreaks are SOOOO a mild compared to before . I’ve had outbreaks that have disappeared in a day . Sometimes I up my dosage on BHT when I do have a mild outbreak , and apply topically. It really has been such a blessing to find out about BHT
