Hello there. I'm a 24F, who has had HSV 1 for 3 and a half years now. I got my first cold sore December of 2016 out of no where when I was 21. I was in school and working at a job that had me very stressed at all time. I came home one day and saw the bumps. Initially, I'd never thought anything of it as my dad always had them when I was growing up. Of course, you go on Google and after about 20 minutes of searching, you are absolutely devastated and disgusted with yourself.
The first year after my 1st outbreak, I'd occasionally experience some shedding, but didn't get another breakout until the following year. Since that outbreak, I've pretty much steadily had cold sores every month for the last 2 and a half years. I was told birth control would help, because I was noticing outbreaks begin about a week before my cycle. Didn't change anything though.
Earlier this year, I finally decided it was time to start suppressive therapy, given the fact that I had no success with natural remedies or hormone leveling using the birth control. I've seen no changes in the frequency of my cold sores since starting 1GM of Valcyclovior. It's been about 3 months, and I met with my doctor today to discuss the issue. She basically told me there was nothing she could do and to see a dermatologist. She also gave me the list of vitamins I already to take to try to include with my daily antiviral. I feel completely defeated. I don't know what to do now or if there is any hope. It hurts me so much because I'm so young and nothing has gotten better. Also, I don't think a dermatologist is the answer. Has anyone else experienced this?
I eat out a girl and then i had swollen tonsles with white sores on them i asked her if she had stds and she said no she gets checked. I got oral sex from a girl at a party that had a sore on her lip I wasent sure becuase i was drunk. I then started to notice small bumps on my dick glands and redness, Last time i had sex with the first girl was in july and the oral sex one was the start of this year new years. I went to my clinic to get std screen and turns out they dont do herpes test as part of it unless you have sores, i came out clean for all what they tested. So i went online a used the lets get checked test for herpies 1 2 antibody and i came out positve for herpies 1. I guess i want to know what i should do now i tried to find info on medication but all i can find is they need to do swabs on open sores but i havent had any herpes sores at least from what iv seen online i dont have sores like that so what do i do. How do i upload pictures here 0.1mb is too small
Does anyone have any advice about applying makeup and removing makeup if you have oral herpes? I'm finding it very difficult to not be wasteful with things like face powder, makeup brushes, tooth brushes and toothpastes, acne medications and moisturizers, and other items like that. I have a terrible fear of possibly spreading something all over my face, so any advice is appreciated. Thank you

I had dry lips which then turned to a black spot you could say pic attached. It was there for a few days painless but was quite hard.
I put some oregano herbs on it as it was getting darker and peeling hard skin and it started to react and get watery I guess you could say.
It now looks like this 2 days after applying the herb! The pharmacy said it’s not a cold sore and just reacted to what I put on it On top of a blocked gland or something
any ideas?? Please

Hi the above pics are of my tongue and bottom lip. I'm concerned that I may have some sort of allergy or virus happening. The tongue feels quite irritated at times and you can see the red dots visible on the front of it. Also my lip (bottom) is always dry and cracks if I open my mouth quickly without thinking about it. It has been like this for some time now and seems to be getting worse. Is this a sign of something bad or could my constant stress and terrible diet be causing this. I will be seeing my doctor really soon so I just want some pointers if possible.
I have been tested for sti and all was ok, I have no outbreaks of any sort, just tender lips and sore tongue.
The white patch on my tongue is the flash.
