Avatar m tn I have gotten cold sores before, though not very often and last week while I had recently got sick I felt a bit of tingling and saw some redness. I immediatley applied cold sore medication and started taking 2000 - 3000 g of lysine. Now 5 days later, there is a bit of barely visible redness on the top corner of my lip, which Im guessing is a barely formed cold sore? Also, a white head just appeared on it. Is it most likely a cold sore?
Avatar m tn (I may have blood tested positive for cold sores years ago but I can never recall having an obvious one that blistered with pain)
Avatar f tn Its not herpes/cold sores ive seen pictures and i looks nothing like it ,i wouldnt have a reason to have gotten it
Avatar m tn In case the symptoms persist then oral antibiotics may be needed. Please consult a dermatologist in that case. Also cold sores are often preceded by tingling and numbness and then a cluster of blisters appear. So it is less likely to be due to cold sores or fever blisters. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor.
Avatar f tn I am not sexually active at all but lately i have noticed open sores on the inside of my labia. I have been sick for a few days and didnt shower so that may be the cause but im not sure.

Im embarresed to tell my mom but mabye i should? Im not sure but they look gross and i get disgusted even thinking about them.
Avatar f tn Hello, From your symptoms the possibility of cold sores due to herpes 1 needs to be ruled out. Pain, burning, tingling, or itching occurs at the infection site before the sores appear. Then clusters of blisters erupt which break down. You need to get some investigations like sample from the sores to identify the virus, culture analysis, Tzanck smear, antigen and antibody studies and blood sampling for antibody studies done to confirm the diagnosis.
Avatar m tn I think its herpes or cold sores and i got it in the exact location lik in the third picture here. I've been using b complex forte capsules and riboflavine 10mg tablets since yesterday morning upon medical practitioner's advice. I have no idea if its curing the thing or not [img]http://www.coldsorefreeforever.com/images/coldsores.
Avatar n tn Avoid any kind of cosmetics. Topical antibiotics such as mupirocin or neomycin containing ointment are also useful. In case the symptoms persist then oral antibiotics and incision and drainage may be needed. Please consult a dermatologist in that case. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps.
Avatar m tn If you had your blood test within a few weeks of symptoms first appearing, it may have been too early to detect antibodies for HSV1. Hence for the second test, your body may now be making the antibodies. The level is somewhat low, in the range of being a false positive where things other than the antibodies react with the test.
Avatar m tn If there is any itching, tingling or scabbing of the bumps, then the possibility of cold sores has to be explored. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.

Avatar n tn Our dachshund/chihuaua has black sores on the bottom of her ears. We took her to the vet and she didn't know what it was. She gave her a shot of some kind and Mupirocin ointment but it didn't do anything. She also suggested that it could be her food so we changed her food and the lady at the pet store recommended Calm Coat (a natural topical spray) but it still isn't healing. How do we find out what it is without spending a lot of money we don't have?

Avatar f tn So, I usually get one cold sore a year. It's always in the same place on my upper lip and they usually come when I'm under great stress. I'm now 20 weeks preg and I've had 3 cold sores in the duration of my pregnancy. They are painful and annoying. Are cold sores a symptom common during pregnancy? Anybody else have this? Am I crazy?
Avatar f tn So I have oral herpes. But I ever get cold sores, and I'm talking to this girl I like, and the other day when we went on a date I noticed she had a cold sore on her bottom lips that have lasted for a little over a week. It doesn't bother me too much cause I know she has the same virus I have,but it kind of makes me nervous to kiss her, I'm wondering if I kiss her while she has a real cold sore on her lip, then will I start getting cold sores?
Avatar f tn No cold sores are present it's just the person does get them
Avatar f tn Cold sore fx and polysporin patches they make for cold sores cause then you can put a small dab of cover up on it. I rarely get them now.

Avatar m tn I have become very confused lately, I am 24 years old a mother of three and I HAVE NEVER HAD A COLD SORE IN MY LIFE...till now.. My boyfriend and I have been together almost 3years and one of my kids is his... so those who have had kids know that you get tested for herpes and all that other non fun stuff... and I have never had a positive test. My boyfriend doesn't get cold sores. Why is this happening to me now? Is he messing around and got something? Or have I always had it?
