Common Questions and Answers about Tongue sores viral

tongue

Avatar m tn ve been tested back in January and June for oral herpes, and both times came back negative. I keep getting what seems to be a canker sore on the side of my tongue, and it appears in the same spot. It's happened 3 times in the past 4 months. I'm afraid it's herpes, what do you think? Is it typical to see recurrent herpes IN the mouth/throat as opposed to the lips/face? Please help!
Avatar m tn They start and take about 10-15 days to heal and typically occur in same areas, back of tongue and tip of tongue. My tongue also feels hot and burns. My dr said she was pretty sure it was herpes virus that caused my cold sore, so i guess spread to the tongue. I did a swab and it came back normal but my dr said thats bc the sores had been there for several days and the swab would need to be done in the first 48hrs. Problem is, in the first two days theres nothing really there.
Avatar f tn Hi there, I'd be careful using L-Lysine ointment on your tongue. It's meant for sores and ulcers. How long have you had the sore on your tongue? Is the sore on top of your tongue or underneath your tongue? Just wondering.
Avatar m tn Underside of my tongue and bottom of my mouth under my tongue are sore. No visible sore but it looks like the salivary glands are red. Is it some viral thing or something else? Kind of has me worried. I've made an appointment with my regular doctor but wonder if I should be seeing a dentist instead.
Avatar m tn Inflamed papillae can sometimes cause small, painful bumps on the top surface or upper sides of your tongue. Tongue sores are usually caused by trauma, physical injury, bacterial or viral infections, vitamin deficiencies and tonsillitis. If sores are large, painful, or persistent, it is best to consult a doctor. It is best to avoid citrus fruits and acidic vegetables and spicy foods till it is cured.

Avatar n tn it could be a yeast infection or a viral infection. Or perhaps canker sores. Try gargling with Salt water...maybe they will heal. It can be painful. If they persist, I would have it checked out. Best wishes.
Avatar f tn read what i wrote well kissing i mean smack no tongue u on ur lips will not transfer herpes or drinking after u moreover if u french kiss with tongue with open sores yes they will contract it no matter what ur using
Avatar n tn Fever swelling tongue, gums, roof of mounth, fever 100-101.3, sore throat, canker sores on tongue, roof of mouth just returned from Europe 5 days ago. What could this be? Took a strep test at quick clinic/neg.
Avatar n tn s still probably nothing to be concerned about. Alcohol can trigger canker sores if these are that. It also could be another viral infection causing mouth sores too. Yes it could be oral herpes but until you are seen monday it'll be too late to get an accurate culture to find that out. Avoid acidic foods, sour foods and alcohol for the rest of the weekend and see if that helps.
Avatar n tn Hi, getting herpes sores on the tongue is not common all for recurrent out breaks and to get one from kissing as a first time infection would not be possible really as if the other person has hsv oral it would be on his lips and the first time outbreak would be on the lips also as was the point of contact. Also oral sex is a risk but with no lip sores at the time its really nothing to be concerned about.
Avatar m tn Do cold sores on my tongue automatically make me HSV 1? what about the negative test. Can cold sores on the tongue be anything else?
Avatar f tn The other night I was making out with this guy who I like, and I noticed that he had something that felt like a sore on his lip. Later on that night, I gave him oral sex... The next morning I woke up and found that I had a sore on each side of my tongue (they rub against my bottom molars). They hurt and look a little bit like canker sores, but I've never gotten a canker sore on my tongue, so I'm trying to find out if it's something I should be worried about...
1474604 tn?1287028129 I have been getting big sores on my tongue that realy hurt and sometimes bleed a little. I haven't tried anything much to fix them, but I would like some advise.
Avatar m tn Many times my lymph nodes will get huge and sore, and I will often get huge painful sores under my tongue. It all lasts about 3-4 weeks and is very, very painful and brings me down tremendously. I also get white, rough patches on my scrotum, I think from scratching it. And I almost always get conjunctivitis. I have Ig H 6.34 for HSV-1 according to my blood work. I have been given 500mg/valtrex a day to take.
Avatar f tn Thus, a risk of transmitting Hepatitis C via cunnilingus, fellatio or analingus exists if there is any menstrual blood, bleeding gums, a throat infection, cold sores, canker sores, genital warts, hemorrhoids or any other breaks in the skin in any involved body structure – vagina, clitoris, labia, penis, testicles, anus, perineum, lips, tongue or anywhere else on the genitalia or inside the mouth.
1170277 tn?1412274753 I can't go to the doctor.. I don't have health insurance. So I kinda need to figure out an at home cure or something.
Avatar m tn t know when to go get tested I have read posts so I have to wait another 3 months I guess I had no fever the hospital never called me back no cold sores my tongue just cleared up today like no more weird feeling on the tip I never got ulcers on my tongue just on my soft palate my gums were irritated but I can't tell if it could have been because the morning I started feeling food was spicer than usual a couple hours later I used these crest whitening strips for the first time and they like b
Avatar f tn m not on treatment and am 3a since 84 low viral load. I did have a tongue pimple thing happening a week before xmas and now I have a mouth ulcer. I have been eating pineapple and stone fruit and other Xmas fare non stop and think that might be the cause rather than the HepC. I'm thinking the joint and muscle pains might be from all the extra physical work I've been doing round the house for the holidays instead of my usual office captivity.
Avatar m tn You are presenting with a few of the b symptoms but the mouth sores, swollen tongue and dots on the tongue does not sound like lymphoma. My guess is that you are suffering from some sort of infection. The only way to know for sure if you have lymphoma is with a biopsy of a swollen node. You could request blood work to be done and have your WBC count and LDH levels checked. It's not a definitive test, but if they are looking into lymphoma it may be a good start.

Avatar n tn i worry because 10% of cases are not caught by blood test and hsv1 can be delayed in building antibodies.
Avatar m tn I also see red spots on the tip of my tongue. I have been getting night sweats and feeling generally ill. I went to the doc and they told me it was just a viral infection and they did not test or swab my throat or mouth. I have a daughter and i have avoided kissing her since that encounter, but I fear somehow she may have gotten it too. She also has the red spots on her tongue and chapped lips that wont heal. she says she feels ok but I'm still very worried.
1070312 tn?1255304260 so far this is what is going on with him, he has had a fever that ranges from 99 to 103, he has been throwing up every now and then, he cant eat, he has white sores in his mouth that resembles canker sores but its not he has a white coat on his tongue with the white bumps on his tongue, inside of his lips, down his throat and into his sinuses, he has have headaches, body aches and chills,he has been very nauses.
Avatar n tn I very very rarely see herpes on the tongue, and with first infection, I would not expect to see that without sores somewhere else in the mouth area. I have no idea what the doctor meant by that comment, that doesn't even make sense to me. A culture doesn't do much for herpes on the tongue? A culture doesn't do any thing for herpes except diagnosis it, so this doesn't make sense to me.
