Valtrex mouth ulcers

Common Questions and Answers about Valtrex mouth ulcers


Avatar n tn As far as the mouth ulcers i'm not quite sure, maybe a nutritibackground-color: #dae8f4'>onist would be good, i know sometimes those things can be caused from certain things you eat and drink including over the counter vitamins.. My husband gets HORRIBLE mouth ulcers from over the counter vitamins and when he eats a lot of tomato based food.
Avatar n tn I also have ulcers in my mouth as well as acid reflux. Yogurt really background-color: #dae8f4'>helps my oral ulcers, because it has live active cultures, acidolphilous, (I have now clue how to spell that word). But this doesn't background-color: #dae8f4'>help the ulcers down below, go figure. The first thing that the doctor was suspect to is called BECHET'S. I'd suggest that you look this background-color: #dae8f4'>one up, symptoms can occur rapidly and can affect things you wouldn't put together to make this background-color: #dae8f4'>one disease.
Avatar n tn Sounds like you are very acidic. I get the cold sores, cracks in sides of mouth, and tbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ongue ulcers as well. As SObackground-color: #dae8f4'>on AS I FEEL THEM COMING background-color: #dae8f4'>on, I immediately take 1,000 mg of Lysine (500mg in the morning, 500mg at night). I starts to thwart them off by the next day. It is truly amazing. (Get the GOOD kind at a place like the Vitamin store or a reputable health food store - - - make sure it has NO yeast in it!) There seem to be certain foods / chemicals in the food that instigate mine.

Avatar n tn I did not have the disease before, because i was tested and everything came back negative. I have been getting these things called canker sores in the mouth. They are background-color: #dae8f4'>on the gums and background-color: #dae8f4'>one was background-color: #dae8f4'>on the lip, but the background-color: #dae8f4'>one background-color: #dae8f4'>on the lips seemed to heal in a little less than 2 weeks. I now got background-color: #dae8f4'>one background-color: #dae8f4'>on the inside cheek. could these be a canker sore or a fever blister. i have read alot of informatibackground-color: #dae8f4'>on, but i can't determine, maybe you could clear this up for me.
Avatar n tn They were small and I thought they were ulcers since I am under some stress at work and then worry about my mouth so often. Right now Tuesday morning they look better still two small ulcer looking things barely noticeable a little red. NO puss or anything. IS the HSV-1 or HSV-2 in the mouth? What does HSV_2 in teh mouth look like? Would a new case of it show up in the mouth so many days after the exposure?

I had cbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ontinuous mouth ulcers and throat infectibackground-color: #dae8f4'>ons and small wounds took weeks to heal. A mbackground-color: #dae8f4'>onth ago I decided to go off background-color: #dae8f4'>valtrex.
Avatar m tn Can you elaborate background-color: #dae8f4'>on what the sores in your mouth look like? I'm curious because I was under the impressibackground-color: #dae8f4'>on sores or ulcers inside the mouth usually indicate a "canker sore" which is not related to HSV. I get sores in my mouth as well, but I assume they are canker, please describe. Besides the sores background-color: #dae8f4'>within the nostrils, I would have a doctor cbackground-color: #dae8f4'>onfirm if those mouth sores are indeed herpes. Preferably a swab.

However, I have taken <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>valtrex</span> daily for the past 3-4 years as I have always gotten cold sores. My 2 questibackground-color: #dae8f4'>ons are: 1) Should my taking background-color: #dae8f4'>valtrex cause me to doubt the accuracy of my negative result at 12 weeks? 2) Is it possible that I could have acquired HSV-1 background-color: #dae8f4'>on my penis even though I already have oral HSV-1? I thought that I read that having oral HSV-1 provides some immunity to cbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ontracting it background-color: #dae8f4'>on the genitals. Thanks for your background-color: #dae8f4'>help.
Avatar n tn A few weeks to a mbackground-color: #dae8f4'>onth later I had a sudden attack of swollen lymph nodes, tbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ons of ulcers in my mouth and down my throat, and blisters all over my lips. My throat was swollen, my gums around my teeth were unbearably sensative and chewed up. I could hardly brush my teeth or eat anything. I waited a few days then went to the doctor. I was background-color: #dae8f4'>on vacatibackground-color: #dae8f4'>on and went to the hospital there. The doctor said it looked like a herpes outbreak, gave me some background-color: #dae8f4'>valtrex and told me it would get better.

Avatar n tn I haven't seen an ENT about it, but I know they aren't mouth ulcers or thrush because treatment for those cbackground-color: #dae8f4'>onditibackground-color: #dae8f4'>ons haven't worked. The background-color: #dae8f4'>only treatment that has worked has been background-color: #dae8f4'>valtrex, if I feel background-color: #dae8f4'>one coming background-color: #dae8f4'>on and I take an acyclovir tablet it background-color: #dae8f4'>will retreat. I have been tested for celiac, and I was negative. Is it possible that it is some other virus that background-color: #dae8f4'>only respbackground-color: #dae8f4'>onds to acyclovir? I still get heaps background-color: #dae8f4'>on the outside of my mouth, but they are background-color: #dae8f4'>only small.
Avatar m tn When I was dealin background-color: #dae8f4'>with complicatibackground-color: #dae8f4'>ons of the initial background-color: #dae8f4'>onset of herpes infectibackground-color: #dae8f4'>on I got a mouth infectibackground-color: #dae8f4'>on, it was white and thrushy background-color: #dae8f4'>with ulcers that would come and go. They never prescribed me anything for the mouth. I just deal background-color: #dae8f4'>with the ulcers that come and go that I was told was harmless and "they happen." Just got a bunch of blood work dbackground-color: #dae8f4'>one even though its to early to tell for anything but just another starting point I suppose.
Avatar m tn Id listen to Grace background-color: #dae8f4'>on this. I'm negative for both herpes viruses, but also had tbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ons of recurrent ulcers in my mouth, inside cheeks, background-color: #dae8f4'>on gums, under tbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ongue and side of tbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ongue, and I swore it was herpes. My blood test has been negative through 22 weeks and the ulcers were swabbed negative for herpes. Doctor stated they were canker sores caused by stress or a virus. Herpes typically does not present itself like that.
Avatar m tn Approximately 3-4 weeks later I started having rough patches, burning, tingling and swelling all over inside of my mouth then tiny red ulcers that would pop up and then disappear almost in the same day. This occurred inside my mouth, but never outside of my mouth. This went background-color: #dae8f4'>on for 2-3 mbackground-color: #dae8f4'>onths background-color: #dae8f4'>without stopping. I saw my Dr. and Dentist who both told me it could be HSV1 but very doubtful. It never stopped so I went back and my Dr.
Avatar f tn I wbackground-color: #dae8f4'>on't know for another day or two but she prescribed me <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>valtrex</span> for the background-color: #dae8f4'>one ulcer. Since taking <span style = '<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>back</span>ground-color: #dae8f4'>valtrex</span> (2, going background-color: #dae8f4'>on 3 days now if I decide to take it today) I have had two more ulcers (no blisters or fluid filled background-color: #dae8f4'>bumps) appear background-color: #dae8f4'>on my labia exactly opposite each other, and I have also developed canker sores in my mouth as a reactibackground-color: #dae8f4'>on to background-color: #dae8f4'>valtrex (or penicillin which I am background-color: #dae8f4'>on because I was just diagnosed background-color: #dae8f4'>with strep (background-color: #dae8f4'>with a strep test) for the first time ever).
Avatar n tn Infectibackground-color: #dae8f4'>on and stress may also cause the sore spots in your mouth. Canker sores or aphthous ulcers, are small sores that occur inside the mouth and may also show up in small clusters. A small red bump rises and may bursts, leaving an open, shallow white or yellowish wound background-color: #dae8f4'>with a red border. The sores are often painful. Most canker sores background-color: #dae8f4'>will heal background-color: #dae8f4'>on their own in a few days to a couple of weeks. If it persists, have this evaluated further for proper management.
Avatar f tn Currently 40,, diagnosed background-color: #dae8f4'>with hsv 2 over 15 years ago. About 7 years ago, regrettably had unprotected oral sex, and since then have had multple times per year background-color: #dae8f4'>with general sore throat, ear pain, headaches, flu like symptoms, and nver have had any hsv lesibackground-color: #dae8f4'>ons outside of my mouth. Have had "ulcers" in the mouth, cheek area. This year albackground-color: #dae8f4'>one, have had "autoimmune" type issues background-color: #dae8f4'>with eyes, now a mild hearing loss.
Avatar f tn Didn't really background-color: #dae8f4'>help, although it reduced the fever and headache, the swollen glands were still painful, and I had developed a whole mouthful of ulcers/sores (top of inside mouth, gums, lips, tbackground-color: #dae8f4'>ongue). I thought this may be an allergic reactibackground-color: #dae8f4'>on to the amoxycillin suspensibackground-color: #dae8f4'>on I had been taking. My doctor said it was a virus, and prescribed background-color: #dae8f4'>valtrex.

Avatar f tn I have had mouth ulcers since I was little. Was married 13 yrs now divorced. When I was married I remember being "careful" about oral sex when I had mouth ulcers. My bf and I have been together 4 yrs and have not been as careful about oral sex when I have mouth ulcers. As far as I know, he doesn't get mouth ulcers. Sept 4 (thurs) I suspected he was dishbackground-color: #dae8f4'>onest w me and may have cheated. I do not know to what degree ie nothing at all, oral sex, or sex.
Avatar n tn background-color: #dae8f4'>valtrex is valacyclovir which would be a very effective preventative medicatibackground-color: #dae8f4'>on to block herpes simplex 1 which is the most frequent cause of cold sores (aphthous ulcers) and sores around the mouth. It sounds like cold sores, and you could find our for sure by having the open sore cultured by your doctor. If it's not blocking forming these sores, it could be something else.
Avatar n tn I have chrbackground-color: #dae8f4'>onic mouth ulcers that seem exactly like recurrent HSV1, except that for the last year, they are ALWAYS there -- I always have tiny pinprick blisters background-color: #dae8f4'>on the roof of my mouth (hard pallet) that never go away, and sometimes they'll break out more and/or I'll get sores background-color: #dae8f4'>on my gums.
Avatar f tn I have gotten ulcers in the past in my mouth and tested positive in 2009 for hsv 1 at 5.0 and negative.
Avatar m tn I seen the oral pathologist today. My mouth ulcers had cleared up and he wasn't to cbackground-color: #dae8f4'>oncern background-color: #dae8f4'>with them. When I told him I have had no relief of the gential herpe outbreaks even thoough background-color: #dae8f4'>on daily background-color: #dae8f4'>valtrex he was cbackground-color: #dae8f4'>oncerned. My next stop is at my gyno but can not seem him for two weeks. He (pathologist) said it could be from something as simple as yeast infectibackground-color: #dae8f4'>on(I had taken several Diflucan for my mouth) but would not comment much more. In my reach search it always goes back to HIV.
Avatar n tn Since your cultures came back negative, it would be a good guess. You can also get ulcers in your mouth. Hang in there. Hope your appointment goes well background-color: #dae8f4'>on the 9th.
Avatar n tn No sypmtoms of herpes what so ever. I do get mouth ulcers inside my mouth, never background-color: #dae8f4'>on the out side. I had a yeast infectibackground-color: #dae8f4'>on background-color: #dae8f4'>with a cut, like normal.. Went to the dr. for meds could not get it healed up, he swabbed the cut for herpes it cam back positive for type 2. In very much shock, 10 days later had blood work dbackground-color: #dae8f4'>one, PCR test and IGG type specific, all came back negative or nbackground-color: #dae8f4'>on detected. My husband igg came back negative. How can this be and witch background-color: #dae8f4'>one do I go by.
Avatar n tn I had 2 biopsies taken from my mouth and the biopsy report indicates that it's likely erythema multiforme. I talked to the pathologist who read my biopsies and he believes I'm having an autoimmune respbackground-color: #dae8f4'>onse to a herpes virus that is dormant in my system. The recommended treatment is background-color: #dae8f4'>valtrex for 4 mbackground-color: #dae8f4'>onths albackground-color: #dae8f4'>ong background-color: #dae8f4'>with high doses of pred for 20 days. If lesibackground-color: #dae8f4'>ons reappear after 20 days treat topically until through background-color: #dae8f4'>with background-color: #dae8f4'>valtrex. If still no improvement, move forward background-color: #dae8f4'>with allergy testing.
Avatar m tn I mean for it to go away, be symptom free for a few weeks and then have the symptoms return again background-color: #dae8f4'>with a blister outside my mouth? I've never had blisters around my mouth in the past (no HSV-1 exposure). 2. I've read that oral HSV-2 doesn't re-activate as often and people are usually symptom free. Yet, I seem to be having a tough time getting a handle background-color: #dae8f4'>on this...does this mean my body is having trouble fighting the virus and I can expect to have cbackground-color: #dae8f4'>onstant problems in the future? 3.
