my partner has never been diagnosed with herpes, although she has had small sores in her mouth, nothing like some of the pictures ive seen, but irritations, that are tiny with a little white spot in the center and soemtimes barely noticeable, however i am unsure if i have gotten it from her. When I go to get check ups, which are quite frequent, i come back neg. for everything, including herpes, does that mean i dont have it? I have had an instance where she thought I had soemthing similiar to hers, but it did not hurt and i had no symptoms, nor was it like hers. I have really sensitive gums, esp. after two surgeries and any time i eat soemthing too hot, like burn my gums or bite on to it, they get irritated and the skin obviously will get a mark from either. how can i tell if my gums are irritated are torn from soemthing else and it is not a sign of herpes?

Hi luchadora,

What you are describing sounds a lot like what my daughter would get in the tonsil area and a doctor had told her it's like a filtering system that collects the bad bacteria before it goes down your throat or something to that effect. She didn't experience any pain at all with it. Maybe a doctor or dentist could help you with that.

As for sensitive gums, anything too hot to eat or bite down on will most likely traumatize that area and you should be able to associate the symptoms with something you have just recently done in situations like that.

This doesn't sound like herpes and since you do get tested you should feel quite confident that this is not.

Hope that was helpful.

      Thank you. Yes, I was on Positive Singles and met someone I was with for 2 years. We recently broke up but may work things out. Truth be told, dating is touch. With or without a virus.

      A possible problem is that it will possibly be overshadowed by emails regarding other health problems such as cancer which carry no stigma and therefore have a more massive amount of requests.

      @nydb1 I feel you can be quite confident that you do not have genital herpes here.  Please return to your doctor for further diagnosis and treatment.

      Maybe this has been asked already, but is there way we could get everyone on the site to write emails to the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation?  If they got 1000s of emails about this issue maybe they would fund people like the researchers at Penn?????????

      Hey Folks. I have been taking Acyclovir 400MG 3 times a day orally since 1/17. It seems to have helped the burning, but the pain stills comes and goes. Should I continue to take the antivirals? Is it normal for a burning pain to last this long? I think I may continue to take the prescription until I am out of pills, but I am concerned that I am still in pain.
