Is this herpes?

Recommended Posts

I was diagnosed with both types, but it started in the genitals. Now I have three pimples around my mouth but they aren't together (one is above, one is to the side, and one is below), and I already popped them. Could it be herpes? I've never had that many pimples around my mouth.

Hey Butterkup , yes this could be a oral h1 outbreak. You say you have not had many pimples on your mouth? Have you had these before, just maybe you didn't know they were h? My daughter is non h, but her acne stays close to mouth and chin. Take care. Are you taking meds or Lysine? Just an after thought question. Truly, Ace :)

I'm taking Valtrex, but I'm concerned I passed it to someone I kissed after the bumps went away because he now has bumps. He thinks it's a canker sore and said he's had a cold sore. Can someone reinfect someone who's already had HSV-1?

      Hello, thank you for your generous donation. I donated on Monday after finding the amazing work that has been done. I got a lot of answers from this forum and I hope more people get involved.  Donation send a great message of the interest that we have for a cure. Thank you and I really believe the cure is in the next couple of years.

      I’m bringing us to 20k; I really believe in the research the Jerome lab is doing and want it to cure everyone.

      I think people are discouraged by past failures but remember in failure, new things are learned and the progress on understanding hsv is increasing. Up until Jerome’s lab devised a way to attack the latent virus in 2012 there was never a way to potentially cure it; now there is. Couple in the advancements in technology and I think there’s more hope now than ever that it can be cured in the near future.

      That's actually a comforting statistic

      Because it is still a non curable threat in community. Whether it's a small group of people who experience the most severe symptoms, they're still people, just like you. Hsv prevalence will only grow due to lack of effectiveness of treatment and eventual resistance of virus. The virus will infect more and more people and this virus will and may affect your quality of life and in some rare cases it may lead to severe complications and blindness, meningitis etc. Last time I checked by 2025, US will have half of its population infected genital herpes. Do you think WOH and health community will like that?
