Avatar f tn I described these symptoms to my dentist 1) happens every 1-3 weeks 2) numb pain behind right eye and right cheek 3 pain on gums.... He told me it was a recurrent cold sore???? Now when I look or feel in that area I see white blisters/cuts all the time like in never goes away.... Is this cold sores or something else?
Avatar m tn slightly a bit more relaxed, but still have much anxiety since I know I can't test for HSV for awhile. Yesterday I had soreness INSIDE my mouth on inside of cheek, under tongue and gums (felt like canker sores or like maybe I burned my mouth with hot coffee or something, but could not see any visible evidence, other than a bitten bottom lip). Soreness almost completely gone this morning. Currently: Minor but lingering scratchy throat for over a week now, and persistently dry/chapped lips.
606417 tn?1220302738 When I am done I look at my gums and they are bruised. At first I thought they were bleeding but they are just bruised and really burn. The day before this started happening I noticed swelling under my tongue. I do not have a sore throat, nor am I sick. I just feel like I have swollen "glands" under my tongue. If there even are glands, I assume their are salivary glands there but not sure what I am looking at.
Avatar m tn This morning i woke up and my lips are red and quite sore, it got me quite paranoid and i ended up searching on the net and things like herpes was popping up. Is this a possible sympton?
Avatar m tn My mouth does not seem dry at all and there are no strange tastes. Lips/gums appear to be normal. I cannot see the upper gums behind my front teeth but they feel normal to the touch. Over the past couple of days the juncture of the lips on the right side also aches abit. I do sometimes bite my cheeks when under stress, like when the burning worries me, and usually push in my cheek with my finger when cheek biting.
Avatar m tn Each time I stop Valtrex, it seems to take longer for the virus to reappear but it almost always reappears in the form of swollen and painful gums. I had this same symptom (although much more severe) when I initially contracted the infection together lesions on the penis and testicles and one strange lesion on my lower stomach. At the time of initial infection, I also ran a fever for a couple days. Prior to contracting HSV1, I never had problems with my gums.
Avatar n tn Chills, mild fever that came and went; still bottom gums inflamed and now spreading to upper gums. SORE THROAT developed quickly. Days 4-5: Noticed white bumps on inner bottom lip and then most recently 2-3 tiny painful whit bumps on tip of tongue. STILL inflamed gums, top and bottom. STILL sore throat. What do I have? I've been told by doc I have mild pharyngitis, but this was on day 2 so he didn't see any white bumps in mouth.

Avatar n tn I also took them both to the pediatrician two days ago and the dr. said her cold sore was scabbing and I did what I was supposed to do, good handwashing and keeping the older child away. Yesterday I noticed an irritation on my lip, near the corner, on the bottom lip. There are three tiny cracks/fissures that stung when I put on some Vaseline. My lips had been chapped postpartum and I've been waking up with night sweats so am thinking that the cracks are due to that.

Avatar f tn My mouth is sore, everywhere! My gums, cheeks, tongue, throat, lips are all swollen. I have red spots on my palate. I had a white sore on the tip of my tongue that swelled, then split open from top to underneath my tongue. I am very fatigued and have an awful headache. I have been cleaning my mouth by gargling hydrogen peroxide as a mouthwash...this keeps it from getting worse, but other symptoms are increasing, such as , my lungs are getting tight.
Avatar f tn It started with a broken tooth that got sore, then the gums, then my cheeks and tongue swelled up nd inside of mt lips, I developed a white sore on the end of my tongue and it split open from top to underneath. Really bad headaches nd now my throat is sore and my lungs are tight. I gargle and brush with baking soda and hydrogen peroxide, which keeps it somewhat under control. What do you thinK? O, and I am extremely fatigued. I almost forgot to mention that I have red spots on my palate.
5432782 tn?1368810556 I remember having a painful sore on the end of my tongue, and an unbelievably painful lil sore on my gums, and maybe even one onthe inside of my cheek sometimes. I was finding it so painful to eat. Then I tried Desert Essence Tea-Tree Oil Mouth-wash, but I bet any natural product that had quality tea-tree would work, but this one has worked the best for me, I tried one other similar. I liked this company, it was only natural, and didn't sting at all.
Avatar f tn For over 3 years or so I've had this recurring burning lip episode that comes and goes at random intervals. My lips swell and get bright bright pink/redish. They burn and tingle, and then get dry and crack. I feel tingling/burning in concentrated places on my lips but never see any visible blisters or bumps!! I've never had any cold sores or fever blisters. I've been tested via Herpeselect IgG 1&2 blood serum tests and the results have come back 0.3 for both!!
Avatar f tn Hello about a month or so ago i had performed unprotected oral sex on two different women. A week or twp later my gums became really sensitive and sore as well as my inner lip. There also seems to be soreness on my tongue that comes for a day and then goes away but comes back sometimes. The gums between my front two teeth are the most sensitive. Could this be herpes? It hasn't gone away yet but ive noticed no outbreak externally.
Avatar m tn I started with them on my lips at the age of 19 (now in 40's) after kissing someone with an outbreak on his mouth (stupid me). Have had them for years on lips and around lips. Just 2 years ago the dentist first confirmed an outbreak on my gums behind my canine tooth.
Avatar n tn Today I received laser surgery to get it removed as I was told (after seeing a physician and two dermatologists) that the procedure was my only option. My lips are a little swollen and kind of sore but I'm glad to finally have it done. According to my plastic surgeon, the oil glands are because I am naturally oily. He also says my excessive use of lip ointment could be a reason as well. He says use lip ointment scarcely on specific areas. Hope this helps.
Avatar n tn It starts with tingling at the edges and goes on to look like clown lips, red and chapped from nose to chin. I develop tiny little bumps at the rim of my lips and they ooze and crust. Last year when it happened, I went through everything possible from food to cosmetics to laundry detergent, toothpaste... you name it, I changed it. Finally, when I stopped eating papaya, it went away! Back to a normal life for me without papaya... until this year!
Avatar n tn I recently have experienced the same symptoms of the weeping, yellow crust on lips. It started with cracked, chapped lips, and applied Blistex to help heal my lips. Only my lips did not heal. They started appearing swollen, with reddness on inner lips, yellow crust on tops of lips, no pain but about as uncomfortable as a badly chapped lip. On the 4th day I went to go see a doctor; he diagnosed me with a condtion called Impetigo which is a bacterial infection that is very contagious.
Avatar n tn I got a pimple on the upper edge of my lip on day 24 which healed in a week. Around the same time, the inside of my nostrils became red and sore, and it has progressively worsened. It is much more pronounced inside the right nostril. There is not a lot of pain but they are definitely tender and red and make breathing slightly difficult esp. on the right side. The tenderness also radiates outside sometimes.
Avatar n tn but is back and now the right corner of my lip is sore and peeling.....I did figure out that our chlorine level was high here 1.87 ppm one day, and then 1.80 ppm the following day. Burning eyes, red eyes, my throat closes off sometimes also. I have been to urgent care twice, the ER once, Family Physician once. Cannot figure it out? Any ideas? I am beginning to wonder if I will have a mouth come morning..............
Avatar m tn NO Despite the billions of kissing events in the AIDS era, not one case of HIV has been known to be transmitted that way, even though millions of those kisses undoubtedly were with cuts in the mouth or on the lips. DR HANSFIELD We get many questions about kissing and oral exposure and whether or not the presence of a cold sore, bites to the lip, gum disease or other wounds in or around the mouth changes the answer to the question. The answer is no.
Avatar m tn I didn't brush my teeth or eat chips before the oral sex. And I am quite sure there was no sore, open cut wound or broken skin on my lips. The following information is about that day's oral sex. 1. I performed two time of oral sex but each time was not so long. I could taste his precum at that time. I retained his precum and my saliva around 10 seconds after he pull off his penis from my mouth. And I swallowed his precum twice. However I tasted blood taste after performed the oral sex.
Avatar n tn My Doctor says my sore lips and tongue are an allergy, but it is not getting any better with the allergy pills. I am afraid my throat might swell up. This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/422261'>small white spot on tongue, dark sore on lip, swollen gums, sore throat</a>.
Avatar m tn Thanks everyone for your reply, I am very grateful to you all for taking out your time & answering the query. One doubt is coming in my mind due to my ocd (obsessive) nature, Eventhough I did not taste any thing from her nipple nor did i see any cut on her nipple.
Avatar m tn i also have some other very small pimple like bumps on my upper and lower inner lips. i have braces, which might have triggerd the bumps and sore bump. i have been rinsing with salt water 3 to 4 times a day, which intially made the bump go way down. then i smoked the cigar, which made it inflammed again. PLEASE someone offer some advice as to what i am experinceing, whether it be herpes, an odd canker sore, or a cyst of some kind. please freaking out..
Avatar n tn My daycare called one day and said my 18mont olds lips turned blue, hands and feet were cold. It lasted about 10 mins and then it cleared with them putting more clothes on him. Made a doc apt for the next day and they said to put more clothes on him. SO I DID!! Next day it was over 20 mins till it cleared and I took him to the ER. They looked at me like I was crazy because he was himself running around having a good time. They did all the bloodwork and and EKG. They couldnt find anything.
