It may not be from herpes, it could be a dental issue, a gum infection, abscess
, anything. Try to go tomorrow and ease your mind. I do get herpes on
my gums and palate
. I also have had genital herpes for years. I don't even think about it anymore. Gone are the days where people say "I have herpes". You get herpes now and then, just like people get a cold sore on their lip. That's all it is, not the stigma it was 30, 40 years ago.
