Hey @Frankman60

Similar to your other post, the most likely explanation is that you have HSV-1 and neither of your two recent partners do. Now there is a chance that an oral HSV-1 infection from childhood is missed by their tests, but this adds nothing or alters the thinking expressed here.

A primary infection with HSV-1 is not trifling matter. There are virtually always lesions and probably some other symptoms as well as the site where the infection occurred. Many people with oral HSV-1 do not experience outbreaks beyond a few months of infection. This hence means that there a lot of people who have HSV-1 from childhood and do not know it owing to no living memory surrounding their infection and subsequent months.

This all means that a healthy positive for HSV-1 antibodies and zero recollection of an outbreak of lesions anywhere on the body virtually assures that a childhood oral infection is present.

      Your symptoms and photos match exactly what I've been dealing with on and off since October 2018 after I had a a really bad flu that brought about tingling on my lips.  I eventually tested positive fro HSV1 months later, but I don't know where on my body it is.

      @CheekyMunkey there is absolutely no way you, me or anyone has any chance of diagnosing what issues inside the mouth might be. There are simply too many issues that create similar looking outcomes. All I can say is that issues inside the mouth are way, way less likely to be related to herpes compared to if you were having issues on the lips.

      Hi mate.  Thank you for responding. I do feel better but I think the oral might be the issue. I was looking at my tongue and it looks white. Well whiter than normal. Also about 3 days ago I had a really sharp pain in my tongue which lasted like seconds. Later in the day when I saw it it had like a line cut into it. Is it a lesion? I have no pain in my tongue at all, no fluid filled sores but I noticed that Its shape isn't right. Like a bits missing on the tip of the right hand side. I've added two pics. It looks whiter in the pics then it actually is but I noticed red dots all down near the tip. Could that be something? Herpes? Also, where the tongue goes out of shape there is nothing on that side. I did burn my mouth on some pizza on the day I felt that sharp pain so not sure if that's got something to do with it.  https://ibb.co/zhphnMD https://ibb.co/G0pPRLh Thanks in advance.

      Personally, I'm still wondering how likely is it China will cure HSV before the States does ?...
