Sores on Tongue

Recommended Posts

4everHopeful

I may have Herpes on my tongue but still not truly diagnosed. The nurse practioner I saw said it was (but that everyone had it- so this is untrue, not sure how much I believe her) and then my Doctor said they didn't look concerning but some of us probably heard that before just to find out it is Herpes. Anyway did anyone else get sores on their tongue? Mine are at the back of my tongue and don't hurt although I do feel them, and its been about a week and they are not going away although I've done a round of 2mg of Valtrex 2x for 1 day... This is torturing me, I just don't know how I got it, and I want them to start healing as I'm so terrified on spreading it elsewhere - am I still contagious if it is Herpes....will I continually have these outbreaks on my tongue?? so many unaswered questions that are playing on my emotional well being(which i know isn't helping!)

has anyone had similar experience and can share a thread of hope???? please......

if it is herpes in your mouth then yes, your mouth will always be contagious, but you wont know when this is happening, except for sure when you see or feel the sores. Oral herpes can manifest in this way, especially if you performed oral sex on someone who was contagious(with or without any symptoms) it is very likely that is how you got the sores in your mouth, especially in that area. I have read multiple posts on here where people have gotten it in the exact same location as you. Also, you might have it below but be asymptomatic, if you happened to have sex with the same person who you performed oral sex on and got it orally, if you do in fact have the virus.

thanks BoxofRain. The last time I performed oral sex was beginning of May...and questioned was it him? do I call him up and ask? He probably will lie right?

Update

Went to an ID Doc (Infectious Disease) lst week and it turns out that I did not have sores on my tongue!! It is papilla which everyone has (go ahead check out the back of your tongue in the mirror) these contain taste buds. I am furious at the Nurse Practioner who so blatantly called it Herpes!! Be aware that not all docs are educated, search for the knowledgable ones!!

A lot of medical professionals are just totally ignorant, but amazingly they think they are so knowledgeable. Some are wonderful. If any doc/nurse seems to know it all that's the first sign (to me at least) that they aren't so good!

Many people assume because someone has a MD that they are really smart, but let me tell you, that is not the case (my grad program shared classes with medical students and some were blathering idiots). Some are brilliant and helpful and caring, and some only got into medical school cause their parents were doctors and went to the school and paid for them to get princeton review and tutors so they could barely score well enough on the MCAT to get in.

      In my case, the symptoms of keratitis appeared suddenly, while I was waiting for the bus on a bus stop. I had a feeling like something burst in my left eye. The eye immediately became red, very watery, painful and I couldn't look at the light. There was a hospital nearby, so in half an hour I had an appointment with an ophthalmologist who diagnosed keratitis and gave me a prescription for some eye drops. The instruction for the eye drops mentioned that this medicine was used against keratitis caused  the herpes virus. That's how I found out that my keratitis was a viral one. For the next 15 years I had relapses of the keratitis. I was lucky that the corneal clouding was far enough away from the pupils and didn't affect my vision. Since I started using the garlic solution 18 years ago, I've successfully been preventing any keratitis relapses which sometimes try to come back. In case of viral keratitis there's no discharge from the eyes. If you have some discharge, it may possibly mean that you have a bacterial infection which should be treated with antibiotics. The problem is in finding the right drug for your particular case, the particular antibiotics that can kill the infection in your eyes. Garlic has both anti-viral and antibacterial properties, so you can try this method, it won't do you any harm anyway. Make the garlic solution with water as described in my post above. Apply it to the closed eyelids every hour during the day and every 2 hours during the night. Two days will be enough to see if garlic has any affect in your case, whether it makes their condition any better. Try this and let me know how it goes, write to me at  vasilenko.igor@inbox.ru Kind regards, Igor Vasilenko

      Man, I think you need to meet people before you disclose to them. Having said that, I've disclosed via text and that worked for me with my ex girlfriend. We were together almost two years. Gotta get out there and take a few hits, to iron out your approach.

      Shit now I'm worried.   My partner had no symptoms, and never has and does not know status.   Has gone to be tested too.  Recently cleared of other std's but honestly we never discussed HSV.
