Recommended Posts

InNeedOfAnswers

Hello everyone,

I have posted a few times now and am now 5 months post exposure and experiencing lots of symptoms. However, the main one which is stopping me getting on with my life atm is a consistent white tongue with bad odour (see picture on link below)

Forgetting all my other symptom for now, has anyone got any advice on treatment for this?

It has only happened to me once that I know of.  I am wearing a new night guard, and I think breathing through my mouth is causing a bacteria build up.  It did concern me at first, as it was all over the top of my tongue and very rough, causing a sore throat.  The peroxide seems to help.

Stay away from Blurnie for starters. He is certifiable.

White tongue is not suggestive of Herpes.  Try brushing your tongue and gargling.  Everyone gets that from time to time.

If really bothers you, check with your Dr.  He may have a recommended treatment or some type of antibiotic.  Otherwise.  You are ok.

@Muscha yeah it doesn’t go away I’ve tried mouthwash.

My doctor gave me anti fungal drops and they only worked temporarily before the white coating reappeared 👎🏽 I’m no doctor but I feel as this is due to damage to my immune system? I have no idea though am just here for guidance

Sounds like you have oral thrush which is caused by candida albicans.  It's a fungus, a pathogenic strain of yeast.  Your doctor gave you anti fungal drops, so that's probably what he or she is thinking you have.  If you are prescribed the antifungal medication, make sure to take it for the entire course prescribed by your doctor. If the drops you're taking aren't killing it entirely and it comes back, you may need a stronger fungicide, perhaps one that works systemically.  Go back to your doctor.

It's possible that you are re-infecting yourself. It's important to disinfect any dental appliances you can remove from your mouth.  Also, get a new toothbrush. 

People who have weakened immune systems are susceptible to it.  So, do whatever you can to bolster your immune system with rest and diet and cutting out behaviors that compromise it.  Yeast typically feeds on sugar, so I'd avoid it for at least the entire course of treatment.

@CookieSC thank you that is the most insightful advice I’ve had so far!

I’ve been taking the drops for 7 days which was the prescribed duration and I’ve seen improvement but the fact it’s reoccurring is bothering me. I’m going to go back to the doctor tomorrow. 

Thank you again 🙏🏼

You're welcome 😊.  I'm glad you are following up with your doctor tomorrow.  I hope you get relief from it!

      Hey, @WilsoInAus thank you for replying.  Just those symptoms and this thread and some other thread on medhelp, I am so regretted and afraid. Thank you for your kind reply. When such sores come out again, I will definitely have a swab test.  It was so hard to get back to normal life.

      Hey @AlexUobby you have a 16 week test result that is conclusively negative. You have not had lesions at the possible site of entry to your body for the virus.  That does add up to a closed case, no genital herpes (or soup) for you!

      Hey, it has been a while. I have posted before and received great help. But I got a new situation here.  1. A few days ago, I found 2 round scabs on the right side of my butt cheek. And then it occurs to me that I have the similar scabs in this area in January. I can't get a swab test because it has developed scabs.  But to be honest, it really looks like some pictures of herpes. I was very confused. And I noticed some marks of dried blood nearby. Can we say it was not herpes because lesions caused by herpes don't bleed? I have the obsession, always want to use my hand to scratch my butt. Last time it showed up, I thought it might be the cause. 2. Several days ago, I found some cut-like lesions on my right groin, too. The same lesions have showed up on the 21 day of my exposure, but it healed on the 24 day. And I have seen the same lesions showed up on March 24. They were always on my right groin. Never see one on there left. I sent the pictures to 2 doctor online(because of the pandemic), they both thought it wasn't herpes.  The hospitals in my city don't offer swab test,  so I must go to the city nearby. When such lesions show up next time, I will have a swab test.  1) Can we say the first lesions were not herpes because it bleed?  2) Can we say the second lesions were not herpes because the initial outbreak was so short?  3) I know recurrent herpes can show up in the box short area. But is it possible it changes its place in just 5 months?  3 week Capita HSV I and II Igg negative 6 week Capita HSV I and II Igg negative Roche Elecsys HSV I and II Igg negative HSV II Igg = 0.06(0.5~1.0 grey zone) 12 week a test produced by a company call Dia.pro HSV I Igg negative  HSV II Igg positive I did the same test 3 times, the value is 1.2, 1.4, 1.9 16 week Capita HSV I and II Igg negative Roche Elecsys HSV I and II Igg negative HSV II Igg = 0.073(0.5~1.0 grey zone)
