Sore lips outbreaks

Common Questions and Answers about Sore lips outbreaks


Avatar n tn I had harpies on my lips and everywhere in my mouth but after i got over it the bump keeps appairing in the side on my lip I don't know what it is. Can you help me?
Avatar f tn Never had any symptoms of herpes or have had any outbreaks. Last night I had sex and used protection. The next morning I had a hard bump on the left lip of my vigina and both lips were swollen. Ive swelled before but the bump is new. It doesnt feel like a sore just a lump. Kinda worried and not sure if I should immediately take it to my gyno. Should I be worried?
Avatar m tn I was almost certain I had HSV1 due to reoccuring outbreaks on the lip, lifecycle of the cold sore, etc. Blood test came back today that said I was negative for HSV1 and positive for HSV2. This leaves me more confused than ever because I've read how rare it is to get reoccuring outbreaks on the upper lips with HSV2 and I've never had a genital outbreak. I'm not sure if I should see a speacilist regarding my lip issue or not. Any thoughts or guidience would be apperciated.
Avatar m tn Anyway, my question to you all is...why would I be having such recurrent outbreaks on my lips - even with using all the natural remedies that everyone else swears by? I think there has only been one week that I have been cold sore free since I found out in December. What next step should I take towards getting this virus under control? I have tried reducing my stress/anxiety and take natural St. John's vitamins to help when I feel very under the weather. Please help.
Avatar f tn This is more of a statement & sharing my experience. When I was diagnosed I googled everything & couldn't find someone similar to me, so I'm hoping to help. I caught this "lovely" disease off my ex partner 4 years ago. I was devasted.. Started as a sore in my vagina region.. Then it got a lot more intresting!! Well in a matter of 12 months I think I had a outbreak every 2 weeks, at different locations!!!
Avatar m tn this question is for someone i know who has what a i presume to be hsv1,who always gets those fever sores around the lips after having a fever,this person has never been tested for hsv.but is there and OTC medicine to control or help with the sores untill the go to their doctor?
Avatar n tn A few months ago, my partner kissed me for a long time then performed oral sex on me. The next day, I realized that I had a cold sore inside my nose. I had my first cold sore seven years ago on the underside of my nose and have had less than one per year since then inside my nose. Valtrex has worked to suppress them if I take it in time. When I realized I had a cold sore inside my nose, I took the Valtrex.
Avatar m tn I posted this question a few weeks ago in the free section but no one was able to help. I am hoping an expert can provide me with some clarification. I have had recurrent HSV outbreaks orally since childhood (I assume type 1 because of the period of initial infection). I am now in my mid 20's and outbreaks reoccur roughly every 1-2 years when I am ill or getting ill and they are quick and mild - unnoticeable to most others unless pointed out.
Avatar f tn we are not exactly sure what causes outbreaks but with the lips Sun light has been listed as a cause. If your referring to a herpes outbreak from putting the active herpes virus on your lips, no it does not act that way.
Avatar m tn Hi This is my 3rd or 4th cold sore in lips in the past 6 months. Is this normal? Will this mean I have weak immune system?
Avatar m tn Also I forgot my lips have been pretty chapped but I have been drinking plenty of water and that is been the biggest symptom so far.
Avatar m tn if you have a history of cold sores, odds are that you have a false negative hsv1. the only way to know if you have hsv2 orally would be to get your next cold sore cultured and typed. typically hsv2 doesn't reoccur very often when it's oral . your hsv2 needs confirmed with a herpes WB at this point. 2 low positives doesn't mean it's your final answer unfortunately.
Avatar n tn So basically my question is, if when the virus is active in the body do people often have outbreaks in in both the genital region and the lips, (supposing they had the virus in both places), or if it doesn't work like that, and a person who had herpes on both the lips and genitalia would usually have outbreaks on separate times for the different parts of the body.
Avatar n tn My 1 year old cat develops canker sore like lesion at the lips. I have taken him to the vet 3 times. The vet said he has allergy. He had received 3 cortisone shots with no improvement. Has anybody had similar problem with his/her cat? Any suggestions how should I treat this condition. By the way, my cat has no symptoms. He seems to be playful and has good appetite. Any help would be appreciated.
Avatar f tn Six or seven months ago I started to get a very painful rash on my lips. It begins as sore tiny bumps. After a day the bumps become very raw, and with in the next few days they become what I would describe as scaly or scabby. Often, the skin around my lips itches, but no rash anywhere but my lips. During the worst out breaks the little bumps ooze a clear fluid. This rash is quite painful, causing discomfort when talking and pain when eating.
Avatar f tn I am very concern, just in case I tested for everything else and I am negative but I am worried since my boyfriend is negative HVS2 - Positive HVS1 only gets minor cold sore on lips one every 2 yrs. I do not want to pass this on to him and I want to have kids in the future. He tells me that he wants to just assume I am negative and move on but it’s mentally affecting me big time. If I have it maybe it’s mild for me but I don’t know what it could be like for anyone else.
Avatar f tn Ive always gotten cold sores on my lips before and I think I just had cold sores on my nose. I went down on my parter and he also went down on me. Now I am worried that it could have spread. My nose didnt touch him or me, but we did kiss. If so when would it show, and does it always return on your genitals once it gets down there. If its HSV 1 does it always come back down below? I am so worried....please help!
Avatar f tn So a couple weeks ago I had a cold sore and then it healed. A few days later on the other side of my mouth I felt a bump and it hurt when I touched it. I thought it was a pimple and tried to pop it but nothing came out. The bump just got really sore and swollen. I squeezed it really really hard because I was so frustrated that it might be a cold sore even though I had literally just had one go away. The reasons I think it is a cold sore is because it's so close to my lip, it's almost on it.
Avatar n tn What is the general time frame for it to evolve from a red bump to a blister if it is indeed a herpes sore, and don't herpes sore(s) usually come in groups, or more than one. I'm not letting my mind get the best of me here, it's the timing that is a bit scary to me (incident with escort to "showing" of the red bump) - I'm sure it could be something else as well, but I want to properly monitor it, know what to expect, and what time frame (general) to watch out for.
Avatar n tn Age - 19 Non-smoker History of eczema, but not on or around the face, and not seen for years I don't lick my lips, I use Chap Stick quite a lot because I do get chapped lips easily Iron deficiency runs in family, but is usually not a problem for me because I include lots of iron and Vit-C in my diet As far as I know, I'm perfectly healthy otherwise and haven't been ill in months.
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 Anyway, I went to the doctor this morning and she said swelling like this (tongue, lips) is called angiodema. She said if I continue to expose myself to this allergen (whatever it may be) the next stage could be anaphylaxis. I'm really scared. I have 2 little kids and I'm terrified of something happening. I can't avoid the allergen if I don't know what it is.:( Please help.
Avatar m tn I have been getting herpes cold sores for years on my lips(a few outbreaks a year) and the last few times I had what I beleive to be w whitlow on the side on my middle finger(next to the finger nail). Is it common to all of a sudden get whitlows when oral outbreaks occur?
Avatar m tn I was in the sun for 8 hours a day for 3 days last weekend. On sunday my lips felt burnt and very sore. My face is a little pink too, minor sun burn. And I woke up today with localized swelling on the right side of my bottom lip. There are no visible sores, no white spots but just localized pain on the right side of bottom lip, ice reduced the swelling. Since I had a herpes scare a month ago (I had itching and one lesion on my vulva....
Avatar m tn I get tingling lips and dry lips with no cold sore appearing. Have had it since late May. it comes and goes, and now just recently have tingling and burning sensation on my tongue especially the tip of my tongue. I dont know if it is herpes causing this as my doctor wont swab the affected area as there are no visible signs of cold sores. it is so frustrating that I always am careful when I eat or drink that a family wont take a bite or zip of what I have and I am afraid to kiss my S/O.
Avatar n tn I was recently exposed to a herpes positive lover through protected vaginal sex though I never experienced any symptoms. My current girlfriend recently complained of a sore tongue after giving my unprotected oral sex a week before. Is this a symptom of herpes? Is it more likely just a cold? I'm slightly concerned and obviously need to get teste but I'd like a quick answer for peace of mind.
Avatar n tn I've had one cold sore more than 6 years ago, or i think it was a cold sore. I'm not sure. Is it possible that if I have HSV 1 and i have like chapped lips or something, and the ureaplasma wasn't completely cured, that maybe the bacteria got in and maybe triggered the HSV?
Avatar f tn When I was younger I frequently experienced the HSV-1 cold sores on my lips. I have not had one in about a year. My boyfriend said he had discovered what we expected to be a cold sore just last night. He said he had not been sharing any drinks or utensils, and was not in mouth to mouth contact with anyone else. However, he gets blackheads on edges of his lips, and we are hoping this is a small white head. Anyway, the day after he discovered it, he performed brief oral sex on me.
