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.

      Has anyone tried Longdanxiegan (LDXGFG) as a treatment? There seems to be scientific evidence of great results in animal trials. This is the link to the study https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1028455916000322. It is a Traditional Chinese Medicine formula that now has won some scientific attention. I have previous experience using Traditional Chinese Medicine for improving symptoms of another rare diseases I suffer and, seeing this has been backed by some research, I am considering giving it a try. Thanks to all contributors to this forum for all the valuable information shared.

      Wow this is very sad that this man committed suicide from hsv. We've all been there with depressive states. I think the numbers are accurate...no more than 15% have hsv2. Every forum I join, its low numbers compared to other diseases.

      Me either. I got it from someone I truly cared about and in my experience it’s been hell because I was so hurt over the fact that he put my health at risk without even caring of the consequences because I was so good to him. He was in college starving so I would offer to buy him groceries, I would always be there when he was having a tough time and give him encouragement, and in the end he ignores me but still can go out and party. So maybe I was better off catching it from someone I didn’t care about. Maybe then i wouldn’t be as emotional over it. I feel like if I would’ve just got it from a one night stand I could be like oh yeah well shit happens, but getting it from someone I would’ve done anything for just ain’t fair because I was good to him and I know some people may not know they have it but he was sleeping with multiple women but acting like he wasn’t. If we’re having sex you should care about me enough to let me know what’s going on so I won’t sleep with you anymore if you’re wilding out that crazy but whatever.
