Herpes or Cold Sores?

Recommended Posts


I have had canker sores and such all my life, the other day I kissed this girl, later tht night I noticed a white pimple like bump on the inside of my mouth, it was kind of sore and I picked it off cause it freaked me out. It came back later, and now I am getting more and more in my mouth, it has been 48 hours. I am freaking out, also I havent had any sick symptoms jsut the bumps.

well Cold sores are herpes...so I don't know what your talking about. HSV1 usually causes cold sores and HSV2 usually causes genital herpes. canker sores are different. if you are concerned you should go see a doctor and soon. good luck! Educate yourself read this site it really helps.

In agreement here with Gosh, cold sores are herpes. canker sores have nothing to do with herpes completely separate entities. i would see your General Doctor or try gargling with salt water for a few days, it will hurt at first but should clear the canker sores up fast. Hope this helped? Take care.

      PesPes, there is no cure. You can treat symptoms and try to prevent outbreaks, but you will always have the virus and be able to pass it along. There is NO CURE at this point.

      Based on the sheet below, it would be around 10% per year without condoms with no active outbreaks. With condoms, 5.2% and condoms and antiviral therapy combined around 1.5-2.5%  https://herpesopportunity.com/downloads/herpes-opportunity-disclosure-handout.pdf

      So is there anyone that has tried this for which Valtrex/Acyclovir/Famvir doesn't work and have constant symptoms and problems?   It's expensive but if like 1 pill a week would work it would be worth it.....Trying to figure out if this works for people that the current AV's don't...

      Hi just wanted to share someone I found on Youtube who I think gives really good and honest herpes advice. She is an STD life coach who has had genital herpes for 9 years: https://m.youtube.com/channel/UC8AkCfC9_bcCvI7-sixkLJg/videos   Also check out Ella Dawson if you haven't yet seen her videos or website. Cheers:)
