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?

      Just read how Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez helped raise $340,000 for transgender youth. https://www.yahoo.com/lifestyle/alexandria-ocasio-cortez-casually-joins-171241889.html It sure would help if we had some celebrity or public person champion our cause. Maybe that should be our focus, to reach out to public persons and try to enlist them.  All it takes is a tweet from the right person.

      Dr. Iwasaki is definitely deserving of funding. I'd love it if we could do a fund raiser for her. I guess at the moment we are already doing the Fred Hutch Center.

      Hi, I’ve had HSV1g for 4 years and only ever had my first and only breakout. I’m super thankful for that. I still hate disclosing as it sets off alarms. Finally met a guy I really really like and disclosed last night to be clear about why I’ve been hesitant to be intimate.  We have for sure kissed and after telling he was in a panick about us having kissed. I’ve never ever had cold sores and have never passed it to anyone. Again in 4 years only my first and only genital HsV1 breakout. I’ve always been told kissing for me was fine....Can anyone help clarify? I’m resllt struggling as I like this guy a lot and hoping he can look past it.
