Common Questions and Answers about Lip sores not herpes


Avatar m tn I continiously get lip sores on my bottom lip only. I have been getting them for years and have been prescribed many diffrent courses of creams tablets etc. There has never been one any better thanthe other and when the blisterring is at its most venemous the need to pick is almost un-bearable. I keep away from lip balm etc as I find them to only feed the bug opposed to helping.
1758222 tn?1312816600 It is especially important to avoid touching your face and eyes after you touch your sores and do not use any creams or ointments on sores unless prescribed by your healthcare provider. Cold sores are caused by the herpes simplex virus. The first symptoms of cold sores may include pain around your mouth and on your lips, a fever, a sore throat, or swollen glands in your neck or other parts of the body. Treatment may include skin creams, ointments, and antiviral drugs like acyclovir.
Avatar n tn Another one just popped up on my lip, right after the two just healed. This is getting so frustrating. I just have a feeling it's not herpes, because my mom used to get herpes breakouts and this looks absolutely nothing like it. Plus, every time I have an outbreak it is also on my tongue. Could I be allergic to something?
Avatar n tn How do I treat open sores on my bottom lip? My lip is raw and open like raw meat, I can't even eat it hurts so bad. I have put some cream on it from my doctor (Triamcinolon cream) but it burns so bad. I keep putting the cream on but they are not healing? What is it and what can I do?
Avatar n tn It is a cream color now and is joined by two other similar sores all on my bottom lip where it meets with the top lip. They have not blistered. They are surrounded by a faint halo. I have not kissed anyone in over 3 weeks and no one different before that then a girl that i have been with for a while. Is this a cold sore?
Avatar m tn I had a lump on my upper lip and the skin and so I squeezed it and some stuff came out it didn't hurt and i've had them on my skin before with no problems just not my lip and it was fine it was just chapped in that one spot and then healed in 4-5 days. now i have another one popped up and i'm just confused if this is normal or not. because i have never had a cold sore before. and i have a boyfriend of 8 months. And it is just now showing up right this week.
Avatar n tn Although I did not perform oral sex on her, I am worried that I may have inadvertently touched my lip (cold sore) and then fingered her. Would it be possible to spread my cold sores to her, resulting in genital herpes? Any feedback on the subject would be appreciated.
Avatar n tn What is the difference between Canker sores and herpes? How can you tell which is which? Are they both contagious?
Avatar f tn I thought HSV1 cold sores only appeared on the outside of your lips? Is it possible that this is not herpes related and I just have chronic canker sores? I am terrified to kiss someone because I don't want to infect someone if this is herpes related. Do I need to go to the doctor and get a culture? Thanks so much in advance for your help.
Avatar f tn give you herpes simplex 2. Condoms do not protect against herpes. Also do not kiss your baby ever have a cold sore. As a baby's immune.system. Is not mature enough to fight the disease, and they could become. Seriously ill and.require hospitalisation.
Avatar n tn I have a few very very small blisters (much smaller than the point of a pen) on my lip.. they are not painful and do not appear to be crusting over. However, they are not going away. Here is my situation: I currently have strep throat and have been on penicillin for the last week and a half. I got these blisters after I gargled warm (well kinda hot) salt water.. the weird thing is they havent gone away.
Avatar m tn I suspect I might have herpes but am not sure. Are there any other signs/symptoms I should look for? If it is Herpes, how long will it be before I see blisters. Currently I don't have anything on the surface, only a small white dot on the border of my lip.
Avatar f tn Lysine doesn't do much for cold sores to begin with. This sounds more like something non-herpes going on. You've had cold sores enough now to also recognize that this is different. Next time it's there, try to see your doctor or dentist that day and have it looked at.
Avatar n tn * Is my condition indicitive of Oral Herpes? * I thought canker sores only developed inside the lips, not outside, but they appear to look like canker sores (grayish white, small)- if this is not Oral Herpes, then what is it? *Could my condition be related to my sexual encounter, and if so, what are my possible issues? * Is this Oral Cancer? I am a smoker, and am extremely nervous about this. *I have a doctors appointment for next Thursday, April 6th, should I try to see someone sooner?
Avatar f tn After kissing and having oral and vaginal sex with my boyfriend I noticed I had a tingly feeling which soon after became a cold sore blister on my lip. He was concerned that I had given him both oral and genital herpes. He did not get a blister. I was tested for HSV-1 and 2 and was positive for only HSV-1. He also got tested and was positive for HSV-1, however, he has never had a blister anywhere at anytime. He says he was tested before we met, and was negative.
Avatar f tn I get cold sores on my lip once in a while...but does tat mean tat I cant ever kiss ne one or do oral sex even if I dnt have it in the moment?! Please help!
Avatar f tn Also, this causes considerable swelling of my mouth/lips? I DO NOT HAVE HSV/ HERPES/ COLD SORES!!!! (Doctors have tested me ike a million times, and I have had 4 lip biopsies that have had no clear results) History: First began when i stabbed myself on both sides of my bottom lips with the hooks on my braces 3 YEARS AGO!!! Keeps reccurring, and the sore ususally begin inthe same spots... : ^( Please help me if you have heard of this, or know of someone who this happens to.
Avatar n tn As for the sores inside the mouth, most sores inside the cheeks (as opposed to outside on the lip) are not herpes. Primary herpes is associated with high fever, swollen glands, and other symptoms you don't seem to have had. In other words, I don't think your symptoms are likely to have been herpes--probably just an unrelated virus. Best. Dr.

Avatar m tn Mammo is right , and also canker soars can appear when you are stressed out, immune system is down. Don't sleep one night, not only you'll get canker soars, a cold , and herpes can show up too. In your case, herpes is not in your body, at least you don't have to be worried about that. Also check for a sharpness on a tooth, a filling , or a crown , that can at times hurt your tongue, and then cause a canker in some people , since you said it appears in the same spot.
Avatar n tn 1-2 weeks (one lasted about 3 months) and they do not change they just go away. They are painful to the touch, but do not itch, they also do not become open sores or scab over. Some are like boils and have a hard middle, but some looked just like pimples. I stuck one with a needle(stupid, I know) and a little blood came out. From what I've read about herpes(and believe me, I've read A LOT)it doesn't really sounds like thats what they are. SOOO...
Avatar m tn (I say this with compassion and not criticism.) Your fear of herpes may not go away, but you can learn coping skills for living with anxiety to make things easier for you.
Avatar f tn I also had a cut on the top lip that would not heal until I got off treatment. Be careful with certain medicines for Herpes. They can affect the liver. Read and ask your doctor...
Avatar n tn Why do people mostly get cold sores on the outside of the mouth lip area? Is blisters on the lip inside the mouth a different type of HSV? I only see posts that talk about cold sores outside of the mouth..
Avatar m tn Ive had unprotective sex june 13 2014 i was okay after that my body was normal a month later in august the second week i started itching the sulcus of my penis was and the buttocks around the anal was to so then it lasted for 2weeks but it stopped so a week after that i had a pus sore on my sulcus and two small bumps on the head of penis then two,more grew,in a line ten they turne in to sores but now there not there anymore ive gave her oraƧ but didnt have any lip sores i did not have blister ju
Avatar f tn If they appear on my lip, the entire lip is painful and swollen, can't eat or drink normally, I'm also not comfortable going out in public because it looks like I got really bad lip job done. I even tried to go to doctors to see if there's something she could help me with, like shots or anything, but she told me to put toothpaste over it (tried that numerous times, it helps only when it's almost over, to dry the sores).
Avatar m tn Most often contracting herpes from oral sex or even kissing, the sores would be on the lips not the roof of the mouth with a primary outbreak. If he did not have any penis sores or lip sores at the time, the risk is quite low as well. Really does not appear herpes related.
Avatar m tn I have never had any form of STD or lip problem prior to this occurrence. I went to the doctor and he thought it was herpes and put me on acyclovir.....that did nothing....I took another round of acyclovir and again nothing. I went back and saw a different doctor who wasn't sure if it was herpes or possible a cancer. I was referred to a dermatologist who did not think it was herpes but rather cheilitis as the spots were somewhat red.
Avatar f tn Either way, a couple of outbreaks six months apart is not relevant or an indicator of much. He is immune from spreading his cold sores to his penis. If this sore is herpes (why do you think it is?) then it is most likely HSV2. If that turns out to be the case, then yes the question of cheating could be raised.
Avatar f tn Blisters near your lip and in the corner of your mouth sure sound like herpes simplex cold sores. Valtrex should shorten the length of time you suffer from them. The one in the corner of the mouth could also be superinfected with staph, if it's not getting better go see your doctor since bactroban or altabax can help if that's the problem.
