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.

      yea I am on them.  Been taking them for about 8 months now.  I reckon they're good for general well being too, cause I am not as tired as I used to be and I didn't get the flu this year.  My blisters stopped after about the third month, but I really don't know if I am still positive or not, cbf doing a blood test and I am not dating so I don't mind not knowing for now.  But I am happy to stay on them for a while.

      "We predict that transmission is unlikely at viral loads less than 104 HSV DNA copies" https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4006256/ The above quote suggests that transmission can take place with 10,000 copies (104).

      See this article.  I would say that it is Herpes.   I have burning mouth syndrome and have to take a lot of antivirals.  Was valtrex then famicyclovir, then acyclovir.  https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.livescience.com/50455-burning-mouth-syndrome-herpes.html

      Sorry to tell you, but I have the same thing.  Probably HSV 1.  It was not as bad as before, but when I kissed certain people it would get worse.  The last person I dated had HSV 1 and now I have it as burning mouth syndrome.  So here is the article.  I get tingles everywhere if I get saliva on me no matter where you kiss me.  So trigeminal area and my skin.  When the I guess initial outbreak was happening, I was getting fever and skin irritations everywhere.  Now I try to be careful not to kiss my partner  anywhere or touch my eyes etc, I do not need to spread it anywhere. https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.livescience.com/50455-burning-mouth-syndrome-herpes.html
