About 2 months ago I noticed a white-ish small bump on my bottom lip, this bump has barely changed in size or appearance. About 5 days ago my upper lip developed little raised white bumps that were grouped together, only noticeable to me. These spots have not changed in appearance over the last 5 days.

Today there was the smallest blister on my bottom lip and 2 tiny red spots as well.

I went to planned parenthood to try to get tested and they did not test for oral herpes. I can not get into the gynecologist until Dec. 30 and am not sure what to do until then. I am freaking out and can't seem to think or worry about anything else. Does this sound like herpes to you?

You don't say if it hurts/stings or not. If it doesn't, then it's obviously not herpes.

Lucie, i'm not sure it's quite that cut and dry. Not everyone's outbreaks hurt.

Whatnow, the grouping actually sounds similar to a herpetic outbreak, however the length you've had them without change doesn't. Getting it tested is the only way to know for sure. Let us know, k?

      When I broke out/ shed it usually was on my backside left side, my  upper crack or back right below the belt! Doggy style is my absolute favorite position which makes him very vulnerable! I think there definitely is an advantage to wearing some sexy clothes or latex! Or even the liquid gloves. I think the biggest problem is that people shave now and they nick and cut themselves! That leads them open for infection on any part of the boxer area!

      I’d build on this to say that the volume of virus is critical. It has been observed that shedding instances where there are 10^7 virions are required for a pragmatic chance to actually get through the skin and it’s natural defences. Most shedding instances are well below this threshold. I’d also suggest that for many asymptomatic transmissions, most of the virus comes to the surface during the sexual act itself. So little point testing beforehand.

      Thank you for sharing that. Very resourceful.

      I wasn't following the conversation closely, but yes, all that matters in terms of being contagious is if the virus makes it to the skin.

      @Cas9 isn't that a "technicality"? From the sound of it this means that on a cellular level there is a daily battle but at the end of the day the virus can't transmit until it is present on the skin... right? I mean the question will still be: how many days is the virus present and transmittable. The mechanism (the technicality) is important but also not important... but I could be wrong, just trying to interpret.
