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.

      That’s why I’m seeing a specialist who can do that. Not every doctors office have swabs available, so maybe that’s the case here. I’ve called urgent care clinics before to ask if they swab for HSV and many around here said no.

      I doubt this. If the doctor had ANY suspicion that you had herpes around the eye a swab would  have been taken. Gross negligence otherwise. This is totally insulting to the intellect of our readers. Mate, it’s time to leave the delusion behind before you do yourself or anyone else real harm. What do you have to fear by believing you do not have herpes?

      Would you like to call my eye doctor and tell them this? The cornea is fine, but there is damage to the outside of my eye. Damage she has seen in other patients with herpes of the eye. I am not making this stuff up.

      Do you have any photos? Sounds similar to me.
    • WilsoInAus
      Hang on that’s not the case. The doctor knows full well those symptoms align potentially to long term HSV-1 infections. You cannot do a swab for eye herpes. The diagnosis involves inspection of the cornea. I am not sure why you feel the need to spread misinformation. Of course you have tested negative for HSV more than three months post possible infection. It is DANGEROUS to both yourself and others to assume your symptoms are herpes related when they may actually be serious. Please reflect upon your need to attempt to erroneously validate other people’s symptoms in order to support a baseless interpretation of your own symptoms.
