Avatar n tn Is it possible to have a cold sore above your mouth? it is only one single sore about 1/2 inch away from my lip, just wondering if I need to be worried about herpes? I usually get cold sores around my lip, but this is unusual. Any help would be greatly aprreciated.
Avatar f tn Thank you! I dont know if he has it...he said hes never had a cold sore before. If it did transfer to below....does it always come back there? Ive heard it that true? I dont get them too often, and this was the first time I had it on my nose...Im not even for sure thats what it was...I am just worried.... My question is....If it does transfer down below....does it always come back? I am so worried that I gave it to him...and he will always have outbreaks down there...
Avatar n tn Hi All, Quick question. I'm 25 years old and have NEVER had a cold sore. I was actually given a blood test last year for HSV-1 and HSV-2 and both came back negative. I did however, since then date someone who had cold sores. Here's my question, I am actually just getting done with being sick (i.e., slight fever, extremely swollen glands, etc.). No cough or stuffy nose but just a really bad sore throat.
Avatar n tn I don't have a temp anymore, just a running nose, coughing up mucus and blood from the nosebleeds. I also get sharp pains in my throat after swollowing.
Avatar f tn What can I take to get rid of a cold while pregnant and my son which is almost 11 months has it now too. I dont like medicine but I really dont want to be sick anymore.
Avatar n tn After 3 days I began to develop also a sore throat, combined with light coughing, which eventually after one-two days practically disappeared. But the sore throat stayed. Pain at swallowing, mostly, plus yellowish stuff from my nose. The head "cold" feeling diminished, I never developped high body temperature, but the soreness of the throat stayed, until yesterday I began my first attack dosis of 500 mg of Azythromycin which will be followed by 4 days of 250 mg.
Avatar m tn Hi, I have a painful sore in my nose and am not sure what it is/is from!? I was really sick last week with flu/cold symptoms, and now I just have a cold, so I have been blowing my nose a lot, but I do not know if that would cause this sore (because I get colds a LOT and this has never happened). It is very hard to see the sore due to its location, but it it appears to be partial scab-like and partially "raw" too. It is just right inside my nose on the inner side.
Avatar n tn My 3 and half year old son has sore nose (inside part), he hardly can sleep at night. His behaviour has worsen and has develop dark circle around his eye. Please help.
Avatar n tn Hey ladies this is my 6th pregnancy & I am 19days from having my C-section. Well I am really sick with chect conjestion, runny nose & a sore throat, not to mention I have a fever of 100° & this is only day 1. What can I do to help maje me feel better?
Avatar n tn My first question is, is there a way to effectively block cold sore transmission between outbreaks? My girlfriend usually gets cold sores in her nose but occassionally has them under her nose. I have avoided kissing her at all but desperately want to. We have occassionally used a bandage or scotch tape between her nose and upper lip. Is there anything better/less intrusive that you could suggest (e.g., liquid bandages or are they pourous?). Am I being overly cautious between outbreaks?
Avatar n tn Right now it looks like its in the healing stage, no more blisters just light scabbing. I've been using alcohol to dry it and keep it clean, also took some cold sore medicine for it. I feel like the alcohol has killed the virus that was present. But i'm not a Dr. or health professional so I wanted to ask you something. The cold sore is on the bridge of my nostril, if its mostly healed by friday, can i kiss my girlfriend while were on vacation?
Avatar n tn Very very small. I wouldn't worry about it, even if it was a cold sore. It may have been just a pimple. The incubation period for catching herpes is about 5 days, so if a week has passed, I wouldn't worry at all. Take care. Dr.
Avatar f tn Just like you can spread cold sores to other parts of your own body (I've only had them on my chin and lip, but if I touched a cold sore and then picked my nose, you can bet I'd get one in my nose some day). That's why I wouldn't risk kissing him with a cold sore even if he had HSV1. As for HSV2, we have been together for 10 years and neither one of us has ever had an outbreak.
Avatar f tn Basically, I'd like to know the odds of me actually getting a cold sore and if this warm sensation is attributed to a cold sore. I've looked up the tingling, but my situation seems to be different. It doesn't hurt, it isn't numb, and the sensation goes away the minute I put some sort of medication on it. And it's been over a day and nothing has happened. Thank you! I'm probably worried about nothing. >.
Avatar n tn This cold sore is not the same as my other familiar friend that I have been getting very random visits from for the past 13 years; this new cold sore is huge, very painful and in a different spot. This "new" cold sore is on the opposite side of my face and is on the upper lip instead of the usual lower lip. I know that the HSV travels along the same nerve pathways and that's why it usually appears at the same site, so it got me thinking.
Avatar f tn Exposure to allergens causes a runny nose with a resultant post nasal drip where secretions from the nose go backward into the throat and irritate causing cough. Cough is a protective mechanism by the body as it helps to prevent infections. You will need to consult your primary care physician for proper clinical assessment. In the meantime for relief from your symptoms you could do warm salt gargles and take OTC antihistamines. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar n tn My post above is in no way a diagnosis just an explanation about why you cant seem to stop the fluid from running out of your nose. Everyone has similar symptoms but this is common in flu, cold, sinus and other bacterial infections its usually a good sign that your immune system is working to fight the infection when mucus has green or yellow colouring to it.
Avatar m tn What are my risks of getting genital herpes from that exposure? He said he didn't know it was a cold sore because he had never had one before. I have had cold sores from time to time all of my life but never genital herpes. I had a blood test before we had sex confirming that.
Avatar n tn Hello! I have a question about cold sore transmission. My husband has been getting sores on his nose over the past couple of years. He works outdoors and finds that they appear when he has a runny nose and rubs it a lot (his hands also get very dirty from work). The area on the tip of his nose gets a raised red area, which is raw. There was one time when he had very noticeable yellow ***** scabs on his nose. Other times, it just gets raw and sore and responds well to polysporen.
Avatar n tn It didn't occur to me that the lesion might be a cold sore until I looked in the mirror the next morning and saw it looking all flaky and dry under my nose. I've never had a cold sore right in the opening of my nose before, so I wasn't as careful as I perhaps should have been. So I guess I'm asking if this encounter sounds like I have given this guy I like herpes. Do I just have to wait for two weeks and hope for the best?
Avatar n tn I'm worrying because if they ARE cold sores due to HSV 1, I don't want to pass them to my boyfriend (who I'm supposed to be seeing tomorrow.) Assuming from what the internet says, a cold sore seems to always be HSV 1. So, I'm seeking some advice, hopefully some that will put my mind at ease about all of this. How do you tell the difference between HSV 1 and a cracked lip? Is a bump or dry spot on the lip definitely a cold sore? These are some things I'd like to know. Thank you.
Avatar m tn It has the same color as the rest of the skin only when i purse my lips is when i can see the scar clearly. Anyways. When is it safe to touch the area where I had this 'sore' if it is cold sore I understand that it could spread. Which worries me. Luckyly if it was cold sore it didnt spread, but now I'm paranoid. So when is it safe to touch, the area which was once there was this "sore"?
Avatar f tn My girlfriend gets cold sore on her nose sometimes ( rarely ) only saw it two or three times in the past 6 years. How risky is her performing unprotected oral sex on me with no cold sore . ?
Avatar f tn Doctor, Sorry for the long post, but I wanted to include a bit of a timeline, to help assess the situation. - Mid-December - Cold Sore and flu with a lot of coughing - Cold sore cleared 5-7 days later - Mid January - Cold Sore, it cleared in 5 days - Cooked homemade sauce and may have splashed left hand while filling jars with hot sauce. - 3 days after the cold sore healed, 1 day after cooking - itching on my left thumb - worried it may be herpes, I covered it with a bandaid.
Avatar m tn It's always either dried or almost dried... which is a drag because it is a hard to get it out by blowing my nose. I don't have sore throats or fevers or headaches or anything like that, but I do find myself snorting to feel comfortable pretty often. For the most part I can live a normal life... it just really bugs me that I am constantly snorting or feeling uncomfortable because of my nose being so congested. I am 22 years old... and this has been going on since I was 7. Please help!
