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!

      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.
