I was diagnosed about 2 years ago and never really had a bad OB bit always little pimples and sometimes burning. It never goes away and I always aware I don’t feel normal. Has anyone ever switched drugs from Valtrex and noticed a difference with something else?

How was the diagnosis made? Did you have a swab of the pimples you describe or another type of lesion. Maybe you had a blood test?

They just swapped a cut that was inside to detect. Never took a culture of the pimples because didn’t have at the time. I just can never really tell when I am having an OB and the pimple seems to get red then almost go away but never a blister.. I just want to find an antiviral that clears me up, so was thinking maybe Valtrex didn’t work for me

I think you may need to consider that these pimples may not be related to your herpes infection. The fact that Valtrex seems ineffective in this regard at least lends a little further weight in that direction. Might be best to consult your doctor when you have a set of these pimples maybe for a swab and examination in case another cause is at play.

      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. It felt like a cold sore was going to develop, but a bunch of tiny white bumps showed up that doctors have yet to fully explain what it is. I also have a constant feeling of a dry, chapped upper lip. A few weeks later the white tongue showed up. I'm also currently dealing with a change in taste in my mouth. I eventually tested positive fro HSV1 months later, but I don't know where on my body it is. I also have discoloration on my the tip of my penis. One dentist told me I had bacteria covering my tongue, and another dentist said nothing looked suspicious. I also get the cut on my tongue.  Prepare yourself for a journey of doctors telling you that you look normal when, in fact, you do not.

      @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 ?...
