Can enteroviruses mimick herpes?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone here thought they had herpes outbreaks that turned out to be something else, like a recurring enterovirus? I heard those can cause blisters and rashes too.

After making out with a guy at a club, I started having weird cystic things grow on my chin with a bunch of little pustules (my skin was totes clear before) and the doctor said it was herpes. He gave me acyclovir but they didn't work, and he wouldn't do a swab because he said I have to go to a dermatologist for that which is ultra expensive. Now the pustules are gone but they come back whenever I eat vinegar or carbs or sugary food. I don't get it....

Hi there, I know someone from the boards who's long gone now... however she was told she had herpes. And it definitely turned out to be something else. (needless to say she was incredibly relieved) I'm not sure why they would tell her she had herpes without doing the test first... but yeah.

I get these crazy twitches in my face and a day later this red bumpy patch comes out on the lower right side of my chin, like an inch under my lip. I tested for herpes thru a blood test but it says I'm negative and its been 6 months. I heard some people never test positive so I'm really scared I have it cause it all started after I kissed that guy.

The funny thing was that 2 days after I kissed him I had this awful infection, headache and a huge swollen jaw on one side of the face that the dentist said had nothing to do with my teeth, he said it was parotitis and it could be caused by a virus. Then after it died down the pustules started showing up.

I asked lots of doctors and checked online but I couldnt find anything... except herpes that match all the weird stuff that's been happening. Has anyone else gotten an experience like this after kissing someone?

      Have you received any clarification on these signs and symptoms? I have been experiencing the same thing with the nerve pain in the same approximate locations and was wondering if you had found anything out about it being related to HSV-2?

      Hi all  thanks for getting back to me. I had a swab and it came back negative . But I’m still not convinced. I’m gonna see a specialist I think . I’ve taken photos and to me there look like scabs healing.    I am now freaking out more because I have started a new relationship and the other day she broke out in 3 cold sores. She said this is the first time this has happened. I feel ashamed I may have given this to her . I have spoken to her and told her my fears and this may have now ruined my relationship.  I don’t know if it’s ok to share pictures on here but if it’s ok I would like to do this and get peoples thoughts

      Hey @K1009 I can report that this is entirely consistent with a recent infection. Your body can take a few months to generate and stabilise the immune responses. The outbreaks can be a bit unrelenting during this period. Your body will get in top of it. Is this a genital outbreak from oral sex?
