What are your oral symptoms?

Recommended Posts

What has everybody's experience been with oral hsv??? Symptoms etc???

I know I have genital hsv. I did not have oral sex with my giver. However, this past week I have been experiencing symptoms that make me believe I have oral hsv as well:(. It started with a rough patch on my upper lip and I thought it was chapped due to the winter weather. When I looked in the mirror I notice some tiny bumps. The following days it seems as if both my upper and bottom lips have gotten these spots in difference areas, and my lips feel really chapped. The bumps aren't blistery and did not scab over. They aren't noticable (for the most part) unless I examen it up close in the mirror.

I don't know if it was a rash, or oral hsv. BUT I've never had anything like this before!!! I've done nothing new, tried no new foods, use the same moisturizer.

If it happens again I'm going to go it it swabbed. I am so terrified that I may have it orally now too. It seems like I really cannot catch a break with anything in life these past 2 years. As horrible as this sounds, I just really want to crawl in a corner and lose all contact with everyone. Well work to pay bill and just move to a place where I know no one. I can't deal with this! I already can't deal with having it down below, but if it turns out to be oral too and eventually causes large oral blisters I will JUST. DIE!!!

I wish I could go back to Decemeber 2011. Life was so much better then.

Hi and I've got the double yammy - oral and genital.

My oral breakouts vary alot; small almost papercuts to massive "third head" growths. I get breakouts on my top lip and around my nose. I use tea tree oil on them.

Thanks for your responses. I am so worried about it. I am in a new city for school so I have no idea where to go for testing. Oh...and my insurance gets cut off in a little over a month because I turn 26 so I will be w/o daily suppressive meds grrr. Of course my pt job won't give me insurance. Tests cost alot of money, that I don't have, and I just don't know what to do. I wish there were more accurate tests so I could know right away if I have it orally too! I would have went in to PPH or something when it first started bothering me, but I had no idea this "rash" or whatever would actually last this long. I mean it's not really noticeable, but I notice the fine bumps because it's my face and I'm overly paranoid about this. I can't see paying for a tests that may not even be accurate now because I waited so long. Guess all I can do is pray for the best.

Now I have to worry about kissing too, grrr. This is THE most frustrating disease ever! At least with other diagnosis you can know where you're infected, exactly how it is spread, etc. This thing you don't have any certain answers. Ugh!

      No I’m sorry the only person that needs to be reported is you. Your posts are unacceptable by societal standards, that’s plain to all readers. Your damage to people with HSV is reprehensible. The only person bashing is you, until your attitude changes and you grow up, there is no place for you on this website.

      Okay,  here's an update... the new site that was bothering me this morning looks clearer and is no longer raised but it's still red.  I've started using tea tree oil mixed with coconut after someone suggested it.   I didn't take an extra dose so I don't know if it was the oil or the medicine.   I'm driving myself nuts with all of this.

      @WilsoInAus 

      The truth of the matter is that you have no idea what you're talking about.  You seriously have issues trying to tell someone about how they suffer, what their test results are.  You apparently suffer from HSV-1 oral based on your profile and you're here for who knows why...sure you must suffer a lot or possibly none at all.  Either way most of the population is okay with someone have HSV-1 orally.  HSV-2 Genital & Oral is a different ballgame for obvious reasons. 

      You think that by my symptoms which include 5 oral lesions since exposure and test results aren't good enough.  I don't need to post my results online to let the world see.  In fact I am done explaining myself. 

      THIS IS A SUPPORT COMMUNITY NOT A BASH COMMUNITY. YOU THINK IT'S OKAY TO BASH PEOPLE FOR LORD KNOW WHAT REASON.  You attempt to manipulate my character with your slander of my character.  The only person proving them self of poor character here is yourself.  

      I have reported you. You have no reason to be here, you are the classical keyboard warrior-troll. I have every right to be pissed off and trust me if I could. I would beat the shit out of you, bc you need lessons learned.  You're alien trying to tell another human being his/her symptoms and feelings.  FUCK OFF. I will never reply to you again. I don't care how much you try to stir the pot. You have lost all credibility and you have nothing better to do than try to demoralize other people. You're a shitty human being.

      @Tone123 could of points. A person with genital herpes is already infected through their entire genital area as marked out roughly by a pair of boxer shorts. Once your immune system is in full swing (a few months from infection) then further infection of the same type, regardless of any sub strains, is of negligible chance.

      You can have HIV for many years without developing AIDs, if that is what you're asking.
