Does this look like herpes?

The first picture is from Tuesday. The second picture is from today. The sores are almost gone already (2 days later,) but the one on the side is kinda tender.

Jeez, and heres another one! It's at the top, obviously on the outside. Almost looks like a canker sore? But none of these are "blisters." And all are singular and spread out? I'm so confused!

I've been very ill lately, 101-103 fever for 10 days straight now. I was told it was the flu and a sinus infection, and have been on several antibiotics. I think I also had a bladder infection. Could it be that these sores are just from being ill? I also had a yeast infection.

Yes they could be yeast or bacterial related.

What was your sexual activity in the week before these sores appeared?

Can you get to a doctor for a swab?

I've had sex with my boyfriend, and it was slightly painful due to having the yeast infection. I thought perhaps it was friction sores at first.

Well jeez, he didnt swab. But he said that is the absolute only thing it can be. Whatever buddy. He did order bloodwork, but I've been so sick they couldnt draw enough. I have to go back.

Anyone else take a peek and offer opinion? Hanging onto a shred of hope that perhaps I didnt just catch something I have to deal with the rest of my life.

This is what they look like today. The ones on the bottom are gone. The one on top is going away. The one on the side hasnt changed much. Sorry for the close crop job, of course I had to start my period through all this mess. Trying to spare yall.

My fever is back. I swear I just want to give up. This is day 12 STRAIGHT of at least a 101 fever. I've missed 4 days of work. I'm out of sick leave and into leave without pay. I have small kids that need me (thankfully my boyfriend has been helping me.) But I need some encouragement. Please tell me herpes doesnt kill. The sores are an annoyance. This fever is going to kill me.

Herpes doesn't kill.  If the doctor thought this was herpes did he give you anti-virals?   That should start to act quickly

Valtrax. Been talking it religiously ever since I picked it up. It's a lot of pills. The sores have turned very tender. I'm slowly accepting this as my new reality. It sucks and I don't want this. :cry:

So I've been on the valtrex for about 24 hours. My fever is better (lower) but these sores HURT now. They really were just a little tender before. How much longer til the valtrex works on that?

Sores can take about two weeks to heal.  Stay on the Valt Rex to prevent new sores from forming.  

Valtrex doesn’t really do anything for existing sores.

Oil of oregano.  Mix with fractionated coconut oil.  Massage onto the area that is an issue.  With me, there was immediate relief.  Lesions didnt make it to blister stage and quickly went away.  Quit eating sugar.  Take care of yourself.  If u need more, begin by researching this forum for the ideas that people have shared.

Me.

Hey sis, so the ones in your vagina look like mine did. I had two “canker sore” like spots on opposite ends of my vagina. The one in your pubic hair *to me* looks like an ingrown hair. The fever and you being sick along with the sores seem like it’s herpes. 

BUT, the good news is: you’ll be okay. You can’t let it consume you if you get a positive diagnosis. I struggled for a long time with it. I’m actually on suppression therapy and I get really bad nerve pain down my leg. Just breathe and everything will be okay, just have to power through the outbreak♥️

      hello all, update... so the white ulcer inside started around january 4... and today it is still there... no burning while i pee, just a constant mild irritation feel, no other symptoms i went back to get retested 2/12 so 2.5 months after exposure... including HSV, HIV, gon, chlam, everything came back negative... the doctor thinks it's some form of chlamydia, he gave my doxy for 10 days is it too soon to tell if i have HSV? is it possible to have an ulcer inside the urethra and be fungal or bacterial?

      Probably not many.  I'm going to change my twitter symbol to the copper ribbon at least.

      okay! I guess I will just start at the basic dosage of vitamin C and go up every week little ? I take 1500 mg of super lysine like the bottle says and it still gives me gas and diarrhea. hoping it will pass if not I'll drop down to 2 a day! I really appreciate the advice! i know we would all.do ANYTNING to not have OB  at the moment idc about stigmas od boyfriends or dating or sex....I just care about FEELING healthy in my own skin. this is my one and only life

      That sounds like a good place to begin.  The lysine worked really well for me for about a year and a half.  Then things got steadily worse for me and nothing worked until vitamin C.  My immune system is not that great even tho i take care of myself, so u may have good luck if u have a decent one.  With the vitamin c, u must 1) take it at intervals throughout the day, not all at once 2) dont increase the amount u r taking too fast 3) it will give u gas at higher doses and even diarrhea if u go crazy with it. These r signs to lower your dose!  If u can just control your OB's with vitamin c and lysine or anything else, maybe a cure will finally become available.
