      Thanks God I found someone’s throat and tongue like me! I have the exact tongue( with the exact color change on the tongue) and the exact throat with white dots on it!!! I am very scared of it and sometimes I feel like I will be sick bc of my throat it makes me feel like hard to drink water, eat, talk HOWEVER the feeling goes away within 4-5 five days. Please someone help if knows anything abut this tongue and throat type!!!! I believe that throat lesions gives this color to our tongue :(

      Has anyone tried taking 2LHERP? Produced in Belgium  currently in clinical trial phase 4  medication is meant to improve immunity against HSV1 and HSV2

      Well, that's unusual, but not impossible. I've had HSV1 since childhood, and my IgG results will vary based on whether I'm taking anti-virals, but always have come out positive. I've known someone though who definitely had a cold sore, but never tested positive, so it's rare, but happens. It's possible he just carries a low count and transmitted to you via saliva but without direct oral sex, or that he doesn't have it and you had been a carrier for a long time and randomly had an outbreak right after having sex (unlikely), or some other random scenario. There's a reason why such a large part of the population is HSV1 positive - there are a lot of ways to get it, it's often asymptomatic, and most adults already have it. It's frustrating that we just don't have the resources to look deeply into these questions today. It seems like he's been pretty open to getting tested and hopefully educating himself along the way - that's at least something.

      It is so easy to stress over all kinds of symptoms, but generally speaking I'd say to trust your GP. They have the training, and they were there, so it's reasonable to believe them regarding your oral symptoms. I'd follow their advice and try to take care of yourself to be comforted and heal. In terms of your concerns about having Ghsv, a type-specific test for you and your partner can at lest tell whether either of you have a type I or II infection *somewhere*. The symptoms for hsv can be pretty variable and sometimes so mild that you wouldn't even notice, which holds true for men and women. If you don't have it, you can be thankful! If you do, you can be thankful the symptoms are so mild the possibility never even occurred to you until now! Remember that even if you have a positive test result of some kind, it's not conclusive where/when/by whom you might have been exposed. Just use the information you get to make informed decisions going forward. You're not alone no matter what the outcome, and every outcome is manageable. Be well

      normally for most people hsv is lips and genitals, not tongue. fear can make you afraid of every little thing that you did or did not ever notice before and now you have an excess of fear. tongue irritation can occur for many reasons, none of which i am qualified to discuss. i suggest not shaving genital areas, trim hairs, don't upset the skin.

Has anyone experienced hsv2 on the face/lip/cheek? 

I know everyone is different but does it look the same as hsv1

I'm also interested in this... I am HSV2 diagnosed and noticed an increase of pimples on face. Specially on girflriend (who should hopefully still be hsv2 neg but not so sure judging by those signs)

It is possible when you have hsv2 to have more signs on other places than on your genitals?

I am wondering this too as I have started getting way more acne in concentrated spots on my face. They are painful and don't go away as quickly as normal acne I've had in the past.

same. I was just diagnosed with hsv2 and I'm freaking out because I started feeling like I was getting a cold sore even tho I have it genitally and I also got another sore on my face different from ANY other small acne I ever even get and it made my whole face hurt and looked different too :(

Recently diagnosed with HSV-2 and I have had an outbreak on my mouth and my skin in general just looks bad. The outbreak in my mouth just involves many cold sores and when one starts to heal a new fresh one pops up further along

Can you describe how your skin looks bad? What does that mean exactly?

I've just found I have gotten more pimples around my forehead and chin with this outbreak, Also before I got symptoms I noticed by skins condition (grease, bumpyness, pores) all in general looked bad. My body has always been very expressive over anything out of the norm so if it's related I wouldn't be too shocked. When one part of me suffers another bit seems to as well. Very well could just be stress related

I have the exact same problem! My acne now takes way longer to heal, leaves scars, and hurts badly.

I keep testing negative, but various people on this forum with confirmed cases of HSV also suffer from what I am dealing with.

I now also get bad acne on my neck and behind my ears. It's always in the exact same spots and hurts like hell. No Dermatologist has been able to explain it.

What’s the relevance of this to herpes? You don’t have herpes.

If you are having issues with acceptance of this, please see a psychologist, maybe that’s a good path.

Just shut the fuck up already. What the fuck is wrong with you. Herpes CAN be in different location.

Of course it CAN, the issue that is always under discussion for an individual is what IS.

It means you don’t live your life on the basis of what’s possible, simply what has truly happened to you, beyond reasonable doubt.

Okay yes true. But the possibility is scary.

But scarier is driving and having a bad accident, being struck as a pedestrian, being told you have cancer.

I don't agree. Herpes is pretty bad. And i would die knowing i gave him herpes. Especially on his face or other unusual body part. Tbh i should just stay single. I dont think he knows what he's really getting himself into being a lot younger than me.
