I'm having one at the moment, and I've been trying not to wash my mouth
by traditional means, but last tuesday, the scab came of, and i though I could finally wahs it normally. SO i used my hand, water and soap, and i washed it thoroughly, with the necessary friction. Today, the area aroung my mouth is quite red, and a pimple like thing is growing, right next to the lip, and hurts when i touch it. it doesn't feel like herpes, but my doubt remains.
