Blood Blisters Mouth Herpes

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    What is this blood filled blister in my mouth?
    I noticed a tiny bit of discomfort in my mouth, to discover a sort of large, about 1/4 inch diameter red fluid filled blister in my mouth behind my molar #18 where my wisdom tooth would have been. (They were removed 9 years ago). I have never ever seen or had anything like this in my life. It is alone, no others, and I did pop it with some q-tips to find a bloody sticky fluid that came out. I very well could have burned my mouth last night on a piece of chicken, but I just noticed it 24 hours later, and am hoping it's nothing more than some sort of trauma that will heal. One thing I thought was strange, is that I have had two recurring styes in the same eye 2 weeks apart, which I also have never had in my life. Is it a cooincidence? What are your thoughts? It isn't herpes, I have never had that, and have been in a monogomous relationship for 3.5 years.Thanks in advance!

  2. QUESTION:
    Help! Is there any way I could get false positive results for herpes blood test?
    I'm getting really scared right now even to the point where I'm thinking suicide. Okay, I won’t do it but I feel helpless.
    A few months ago, I started having unprotected sex. The first time, I didn’t notice anything. It wasn’t til the last time I kind of got scared. I noticed after having sex a week after having sex with him....two painful blisters on my vagina area and some on my butt. I have had unprotected sex but I just never thought this could happen to me!
    I went to the doctor a week later I got the blisters and it was still painful. They did a culture and blood test for herpes that day. The doctor called me and told me the results came in and they were negative. I was relieved and forgot about it.
    I don’t know if this matters but I got the chickenpox shot, flu shot, and my last shot of Gardasil about a month ago.
    I ended up getting really sick like two weeks ago. It started with a really bad sore throat, then I got a rash on my neck and I ended up with a fever, lower back pain, throwing up this clear maybe mucus/saliva and my throat felt really swollen. I went to the doctor because I had trouble breathing. They gave me Benadryl and a shot of Penicilin with an IV. They advised me to keep talking Benadryl until my rash goes away and Tylenol/Ibuprofen. They said it was a viral infection but treated it as strep throat and not to worry. That stuff never really helped and I didn’t take Tylenol or Ibuprofen but I continued to take Benadryl which didn’t really do much.
    My rash went away along with most of my symptoms but still had somewhat of a sore throat but I started coughing really bad. I would cough up clear mucus/saliva? I was barely eating because the sides of my mouth got sooo dry that I ended up with a cut at the corner. I thought it was a cold sore but it was just dry skin. Nothing else. I went to the doctor because I was not getting better and the doctor diagnosed me with walking pneumonia! She gave me antibiotics and hopefully it goes away in a couple of days.
    While I was there, I wanted to take a test for herpes and other STD’s. The doctor tells me the culture test came out negative but I was infected? I’m thinking in my head, why would the doctor tell me I didn’t have herpes when they called me the first time? Can I still have herpes if I have been infected? A million questions were running through my head. So I ended up doing a blood test to see if I have it or not. I haven’t had any blisters/ulcers since the first time, so I had some hope.
    I just got a call today and they tell me my blood test came out positive for herpes! I’m getting really scared. I’ve been googling all day for information on this and if there is ANY possible way these results can be false. How can you have a positive blood test result for herpes but when I took a blood test and culture test a week after I got the initial break, they both came out negative? I’ve been looking for ways of maybe this whole having herpes is false and I’ve heard old blood tests can give false positive results.
    I’m thinking maybe the medicines, the shots, me being sick, can give off false positive results for my recent blood work. I did the blood work when I was sick with strep throat and walking pneumonia.
    What I really care about is, is there anything that I’m saying indicate a false positive blood test for herpes?

    • ANSWER:
      The blood test can be inaccurate but when you have symptoms it's kind of rare to get a false positive for herpes. What I don't understand is how they could tell you you're negative but infected. Having a negative result means you don't have it. But you can have antibodies for herpes but they have to reach certain numbers in order to give you a positive result, which may have lead them to think that you're infected. Once you're infected with herpes you have it.
      Throwing up and a rash on your neck and coughing up mucous are not symptoms of herpes. It's very rare to get herpes away from the mouth or genitals. You could have had a viral infection and or the flu.
      You can always take another test for herpes in a few months to clear it up and ask a few questions to your doctor in the mean time.

  3. QUESTION:
    i had intercourse with this guy and he said he had herpes but never an outbreak but in his mouth can i get it?
    he said he got sick and got a blister in his mouth they did a blood test and it came back postive for herpes and that was eight years ago but has never had a outbreak in his genital area and when he was with his ex girlfriend she never had an outbreak only on her lip can you tell me what is going on??

    • ANSWER:
      Your guy friend has oral herpes. Which isn't surprising - 50% to 80% of adults have oral herpes, its just that most of them don't know that they have it. If you've ever had a cold sore, you probably have oral herpes.

      Herpes is spread through skin-to-skin contact. And it stays whereever you caught it. And it can be spread, even when no symptoms are present (although its less likely than when symptoms are present.)

      So, can you get oral herpes from kissing him? Most certainly.
      Can you get genital herpes from kissing him? No.
      Recieving oral sex from him could give you genital herpes, though.

      Good question.

  4. QUESTION:
    Herpes or fever blisters or something else??????!!!!!!?
    Hey there the last couple of day I noticed some clear bumps show up on the skin of my penis which look alot like herpes. My girlfriend had gotten sick and had fever blister all over her mouth she went to the doc they gave her a shot and they went away. The day after she gave me oral sex and the next day they sprung up. She was supposed to wait ten days so the bacteria and all to go away. So I got the bumps last Saturday and now there starting to go down leavin like scabs I already went to the doctor to withdraw blood and got to wait a week he said it looked like herpes but doesn't have the symptoms of it so I'm very nervous. Is herpes as bad as people make it out to be?

    • ANSWER:
      wow, way for your girl to give you a disease that will last you the rest of your life. bet 10 days seems like it's no time at all now to wait. hope ya marry her, cause you're now severely damaged goods.

  5. QUESTION:
    Possible blister on my gum in my mouth (not herpes)?
    Last night I noticed that my upper gum on the inside was swollen, so I was playing with it with my tongue and noticed that it was blister-like...so I touched it and it popped and I tasted blood...I know this is gross, but is it normal? Does anyone know what it can be? It doesn't/didn't hurt...and it is almost completely healed, just wondering what it could've been?

    • ANSWER:
      It could possibly be food related. 1. Persons who usually tend to slurp very hot coffee or eat foods which are too hot (temperature wise), may get those. 2. It could be induced by substitute products such as Splenda, a sugar substitute. By the way, Coke Zero contains Splenda, in order to achieve the usual sweetness without using sugar, thus reducing calories. I can not touch it, as my mouth mucous will show the symptoms you described.

  6. QUESTION:
    Why do i keep thinking i have oral herpes?
    And why do I care so much its nothing all it is, is a contagious viruses. I get cuts on my inner lip and canker sores Idk why and around my mouth I get pimples or zits and the sad part is I stress about this so much I'm causing it my self Idk.

    The cuts don't burn or itch
    The canker sores feel like canker sores
    I noticed this lump on my upper gum Idk what that is
    The zits and pimples don't itch
    If I play with the pimples they will burn or sting and bleed
    And about a week ago I had a blood blisters in my mouth
    Idk what's going on

    • ANSWER:
      You might be thinking that the pimples around your lips are cold sores, they could be just acne or irritation. Oral herpes doesn't often affect the inside of the mouth, they cause cold sores or fever blisters on or around the out side of the mouth. Oral herpes also doesn't typically bleed, they are filled with a watery / puss like fluid.
      Oral herpes can be passed to the mouth with out ever having sex. They are often passed during child hood by being innocently kissed and they are very common to have.
      You can always see a doctor or dermatologist and have them check out the bumps, you can even have a blood test done for oral herpes.

  7. QUESTION:
    tongue piercing + blood blister?
    hi guys, its been about 3-4 months that I had my tongue pierced now, and about a month after I got it done, I noticed that I had a tiny blood blister under my tongue (not on my tongue itself, but on the bottom of my mouth). So I "popped" it (youch, I know) and just let it heal. However, it came back only like a week after, at the EXACT same spot. So i've been doing this little routine for the past 3-4 months now, and it just keeps coming back.

    I've noticed that the spot where its at is the spot where the bottom of the barbel sits when my mouth is closed.. could that be it? I find it a little weird because usually blood blisters only occur when you get hit or something.. or if you have herpes, but trust me, this isnt herpes haha. Plus, its only one blister and its always at the exact same spot.

    Thoughts? I dont want to go see the doctor or dentist just for that, its not the worth the whole: "tongue piercings are bad for you"
    Btw, i've tried a shorter barbel and it hasnt done anything

    • ANSWER:
      Go to the piercer who did it, he or she may know what's causing it.
      It might also just be from it rubbing against the bottom of your mouth.

  8. QUESTION:
    Strange bumps on the roof of my mouth?
    I had this strange bump on the roof of my mouth nearly 2 years ago, I went to the doctor to have it checked out, he said it was completely harmless.

    Today I just noticed that there's another bump of the same size right beside the old one. I can feel them when I rub my tongue against the roof. Please can someone tell me what it is?
    I was really curious so last year I also had my Blood tests that included tests for Diabetes, Hepatitis B&C, HIV and a few others but everything turned out normal and I was very glad. That made me think that the bump is harmless, it didn't cause any pain either but is very hard. but today another one appeared right next to it.

    Could these bumps be related to my allergy? or something else?

    Here are a few things that I am experiencing:
    Sneezing a lot when there's even a little dust or when our cat is near my face (it started a few months ago),
    Left ear makes vibrating sounds sometimes maybe because of the damage caused by all the sneezing, Itchy mouth, Many tiny red dots inside mouth with a few purple lines, Blood Blisters (sometimes they pop themselves), burning sensation in the chest sometimes, breathing problems right after the sneezing stops.

    Other than these I've also been experiencing very bad burning sensation when I urinate.
    My friend said it could be herpes, I don't know much about it.

    I'm 19 years old, don't drink or smoke.
    I've never slept with someone or had contact with used syringes, so STDs are out of the question right? Though I have kissed.

    I'll be having a check up tomorrow, but I want to hear what people think.
    Please help, I am really scared.
    Thank you very much.
    No I haven't had oral sex either.
    :)

    • ANSWER:

    • ANSWER:
      1. Soap is an irritant.
      2. You proved it was the soap by trying it again and got the same result.
      3. Stop asking us since you don't believe us and just go to the doctor for that blood test.

  11. QUESTION:
    Could of sworn i had herpes, but test was negative?
    i had pimples around my mouth, nasty looking stuff. a blood blister on the bottom of my foot and other things that went along with a diagnosis of herpes 1. I dont have the money to do a full screen test and by looking online im guessing now it could be syphilis?
    i went to a good doctor and doubt the test was wrong.
    this sucks, i want this stuff gone, what should i do??
    thanks...
    test was negative for both hsv 1 and 2
    never had acne in my life so there's no way that's what it is
    they're more like sores but not really.
    and ever so often there will be big ones that are irritating. and once in awhile a 'pimple' will come up and then the corners of my mouth will turn red and become somewhat inflamed, it is not at all a pretty sight
    a syphilis test is 79$ from what i've seen
    and i have also been tested fro chylmadia and gonnoreah so my options are pretty low i would think...

  12. QUESTION:
    Does this sound like herpes?
    Ok I am going to start off by saying I have never kissed a girl or had sex, had girlfriends but nothing intimate like that, lol... But I am not sure but I have little blisters, not grouped or anything, on the inside of my mouth, I had a blood test 3 months ago that came out negative for HSV, because I thought I had it awhile back but it was really just acne. I get this blisters but they never ever scab, I know that not all scab but they usually always do... and it does not hurt... What gets me worried is that I drank something today and my finger that had a papercut on it actually grazed the area I drank from a bit, and now i am scared that i have whitlow... Part of me is telling myself that it is ridiculous because I havent done anything to cause it like sharing drinks or kissing people, and if I were to get herpes it wouldnt happen on my mouth... If you know anything alternative to what blisters in your mouth could be, can you give me a name and I will look it up... Last question, do canker sores blister before they pop because I dont think so, and arent cold sores suppose to hurt at least slightly or tingle, because these blisters have no pain what so ever at all, it just fields like my lip.

    • ANSWER:
      Herpes is not transmitted through blood. You would have to have some cuts around your cuticles then be chewing on your fingers when you have an out break of cold sores (which is caused by oral herpes and is the main cause of herpes whitlow).
      You can get oral herpes just from kissing, you don't have to have oral sex to get oral herpes. Herpes can also appear as single blisters when you have a mild out break.
      If you don't have HSV then you won't be able to give your self herpes whitlow.
      Canker sores are more like a raised white sore that occurs from biting the soft parts of your mouth, or eating rough textured, or spicy foods.
      You may want to get tested for HSV again since it can appear at any point in your life and you wouldn't always know that you have it.

  13. QUESTION:
    Could my retainers be causing blisters?
    I've been getting small bubble things on my bottom lip since I've had braces (I'm allergic to metals), now I've been wearing retainers for about four months and they have gotten progressively worse. They've been getting larger and very annoying, I guess they're blood blisters: when I'm eating the heat from the food will make it swell and become painful, I'm assuming the heat is causing increased blood flow to the area. Sometimes I'll accidentally bite it as well and that causes it to get much worse and bleed or fill with blood and become dark red. They only show up in a couple of specific spots on my bottom lip: where my lip overlaps my top retainer bracket when my mouth is closed.

    Could the retainers be causing this? Are there any ways to prevent it or cure it faster?

    I've tried looking up methods online, but only get results for cold sores, herpes, and canker sores. I'm sure this is not any of those.

    • ANSWER:

  14. QUESTION:
    Does herpes have to come in clusters?
    So I wanted to know a few things about oral herpes. First of all, does it have to be only inside your lips and on your tongue and like on your actual lip, or could it be like on the skin above and around your lip. Second of all, does oral herpes have to come in clusters like in a big group of blisters or sores or whatever, or could it be just a single dot. And third, does it have to be like a blister or cold sore looking thing, or could it be like pimple looking or something like that. Last question, if you kiss someone with oral herpes while they have a blister, and you get herpes too, will you only get blisters on your mouth or could they be anywhere on your body. Also, lets say you get oral herpes, when will you first start to see symptoms and when will it show up positive in a blood test.? Thanks guys!!

    • ANSWER:
      It won't be on your tongue, it'll be on your lips and on the edges of your lips.

      It's very rare to have oral herpes sores too far from the mouth. It usually comes in groups, but a single one is possible. This is particularly true if you've treated part of the outbreak with a topical antiviral creme.

      It'll look like a blister, cold sore, ulcer, or crater. If you have a typical pimple, it's a pimple, not a herpes outbreak. The skin deformation caused by herpes is quite specific, and it usually looks deformed but clean, unlike a wart or pimple.

      If you contract oral herpes (HSV-1) through kissing an infected person, it's very likely that it'll only cause blisters around your mouth, if anywhere. Getting HSV-1 on the genitals through oral sex, or genital herpes (HSV-2) on your mouth through mere kissing, could entail a whole different story each. In both types of herpes, there is a potential possibility of the virus infecting the eyes due to bad hygiene, or advancing into the brain due to unknown reasons. The latter is extremely rare, especially with HSV-1. The former depends on you, but it's also far less likely to happen with HSV-1.

      In both types of herpes, particularly with HSV-1, it's not uncommon to see absolutely no symptoms as long as your overall health is fine and your immune system is not compromised. For an average, relatively healthy individual, oral herpes symptoms are expected to show up shortly after initial infection (which typically occurs as an infant or child), and then with intervals of a year at least, if that.

      The window period for herpes remains to be uncertain, therefore a blood test is not the recommended means of detecting the virus. It's also difficult to determine which type of herpes (1 vs. 2) you have in your blood stream. For these two reasons, any medical professional would discourage you from taking a blood test for herpes. The best way to get tested for herpes of both types is the take a swab from a fresh blister formation, and send it to the lab for culture. That'll also tell you which type of herpes you have, if any. If you insist on the blood test, wait at least a month, preferably at least 6 months after possible exposure. Note that anyone at the age to have reached puberty is VERY likely to test positive for oral herpes, as it's the most commonly found virus in the world, as well as the most contagious one. That said, herpes, especially type-1, is also one of the most harmless virii, most typically entailing nothing but occasional, minor nuisance.

  15. QUESTION:
    Nervous...Herpes and lymph nodes?
    I have a soft pea like lymph node on the back of my neck on the left. I only noticed that it got bigger after a bug bite. Maybe I never noticed it to this degree before, I assumed it was a vein. But the swelling from the bug bite has gone down and its still there.It doesnt hurt or feel uncomfortable. Its only noticeable when I elongate my neck. I got an HIV/Chlamydia/Gonorrhea test in Late June/early July this year and everything is fine. Im rarely sick and Im not sick now.The last time i had sexual contact was in Feb 2012. I went to a doctor and the lump is not cancerous and she ordered a blood test. I never got tested for oral herpes yet. I dont have blisters on my mouth just occasionally tiny heat pimples (not in clusters). I know to go to the doctor but has anyone had these symptoms? So Im wondering what could be wrong?

    • ANSWER:
      oregano oil. it will help even if it is a tick bite.

  16. QUESTION:
    Virgin with Herpes? WHAT IS GOING ON!?
    I am a virgin and have never had cold sores on my mouth or anything like that.
    But recently I've started having one or two [at most, at one time] blood-filled blisters on the outer genital area.
    I can't figure out for the life of me what is going on. I have never had sex, never had oral herpes, etc...
    can someone help me?
    I can't/won't go to the doctor because i dont want my mom to know about it. Also, I have a HUGE fear of seeing THAT kind of doctor.

    • ANSWER:
      Virgins can get herpes. If you have any type of genital to genital contact or mouth to genital contact you can contract it.

      What you have does not sound like herpes though. Herpes does not produce blood filled blisters. If you do blister, they are white, yellow, or clear. Even when popped, they usually do not bleed.

  17. QUESTION:
    I am not sure if its Herpes or not... scared?
    I had a blood test that came out negative 3 months ago for HSV, but for some reason I don't trust that they really checked (paranoia). Last week I noticed a blister inside my mouth parallel to my teeth. I talked to a nurse who said its probably Herpes, which got me really down. I have done nothing to cause anything since my blood test, even avoid people. The blister popped an hour after getting it (absolutely an accident, I did not even try anything), it did not hurt much at all, just a slight sting after the pop. Its been 10 days and no scabbing happened, I know that not all fever blisters scab, but they almost usually do, and there are tiny non painful blisters but smaller than the one i had, on the other side of my mouth that are always there. But about 9 days ago I accidentally splashed soda in my eye, and now I am scared I contracted herpes ocular, no real redness, or vision impairment, but my eyelid hurts like its been punched, after I took a shower yesterday. It does not hurt at all unless I clench my eyelid, but even if I clench, the pain so small it's almost nothing. What do you think?
    Haha I forgot to say... I have had relationships but nothing intimate... AKA i have never kissed a girl... just dates to dances and movies... I dont share drinks because I find it kinda disgusting

    • ANSWER:
      I'm willing to bet you're okay.
      Herpes look like canker sores. Canker sores are unrelated, however. Sometimes there are little blisters on the inside of your mouth that can be caused by a variety of things. I've gotten these little blisters in my mouth - and I have been getting them for years. They're little, non-painful blisters and they can pop easily and accidentally.
      If you had herpes, you would know it because the sores are extremely painful.
      If your eyelid still hurts, go see a doctor. There is acid in soda and it could've irritated your eye. Even more likely, something could've just gotten in your eye and caused it to hurt. If you wear contacts, this is even more likely, but if not, I'm still quite sure that it's just an irritant, not a virus.

      As for this nurse, I find her extremely irresponsible to just say "It's probably herpes," and just leave it at that. If he/she really believed that, she would've continued to do a test - any nurse would know the pain that comes along with herpes sores and would've done a test to see if that were in fact the case so you could get on meds to quicken the healing process.

      If you're really concerned, go to a walk-in clinic and have them check you out.
      You'll be fine, I'm sure :)

  18. QUESTION:
    do i have Genital herpes HSV-2?
    ok so i got a BJ from this girl 3 weeks later i got blisters on my scrotum the day before i gt the blisters i had masturbated with shampoo that gave me some irritation, it could be that i have herpes or it was just irritation. Should i masturbate with the shampoo again to see if i have a reaction if i do that i dont haver herpes. Because i dont get a blood test. The blisters went away in 4 days. also had 1 small blister on my penis head. I kissed the girl and i never got it on my mouth. so should i try to use the shampoo again to see if i get the same irritation?

    • ANSWER:
      Test the shampoo on a small portion of it .. I'm not sure what it can be because if it was an allergic reaction it wouldn't only appear in one spot, of your body it would be on your hands too, perhaps ; you should test it again on what area of your ..... and go get test regardless of the outcome.

  19. QUESTION:
    Herpes Transmission so scared?
    I do not know if I have herpes or not because a weird blister came up on my lip 3 days ago that is gone now, it was one blister that was the size of a small whitehead, no inflammation or big pain, just a bit itchy... If I pierced it, and then put alcohol on it, then would it still have a risk to spread to others...

    The Real Question... the day after I pierced it, I was drinking something, at least a minute later (maybe even 2 minutes later) she touches the cup, I tell her to wash her hands, but she doesnt, in that minute she touched a whole bunch of door knobs, but scratches the side of her mouth, I am so scared that I gave her my ailment... please help me

    The question summary:

    1) How long would the virus last outside the body, and would it be on that cup.

    2) Does my blister sound like a cold sore because I have never kissed a girl and I had a herpes blood test late last year. If this is my first outbreak, then why isnt as bad as the internet make it sound, it wasnt read, just skin color, at it was one tiny tiny blister, Mucocelle maybe, but it was actually on the lip and not on the border.

    3) Would me soaking it with Peroxide the day before lessen the chances of infecting others

    I am so scared, if I give it to her, I would be so guilty because I am being very careful not to spread it, I dont even know if I have it.

  20. QUESTION:
    Does this sounds like genital herpes?
    A guy I allowed to give me oral sex has herpes type two and possibly type one. A few days after oral sex I started to feel itchy and I had swollen lymph nodes/glands. Him and I both went to the doctor together and when we did he was diagnosed with herpes two and I had type one. He did not get his results for type one that day, so I am not sure what his situation for type one is. During this same time I was diagnosed with a UTI because e.coli was found in my urine. I was also told that I had a yeast infection or bacterial vaginosis after given antibiotics for the UTI. I got little cuts on the corner of my mouth and inside my mouth (not blisters), I think they're called "angular cheilitis". I also saw pimples that did not hurt in the private area with hair growing out of it, but no swabs were taken. I went to four different doctors that told me four different things. I'm scared and confused. I never got blisters before, but my doctor said I could have had herpes type one in the past and didn't know and that it doesn't explain my current situation. But it has been making me VERY depressed and I keep on crying. My questions are:

    1. If i had oral herpes before can I still get genital herpes from the type?
    2. Do my syptoms sounds like that of genital herpes from type one?
    3. How long does type one usually take to show up in the blood? I was positive a month and a half after the incident.

    • ANSWER:
      1. yes you can get herpes from receiving oral sex, specially if your partner had a cold sore at they time you had oral sex. HSV1 usually causes cold sores, you can get those during child hood when some one innocently kisses you with a cold sore. Which could be what is causing the cuts in your mouth.
      2. It could be herpes, herpes does cause itching, swollen and or tender lymph nodes/glands. You could have type one orally and genitally. But both types of herpes can have similar symptoms.
      3. It can take months to show up in blood work, because antibodies can take a long time to build up.

  21. QUESTION:
    do i have herpes or HIV or am i just freaking out?
    a little over a month ago i had sex with someone i consider a high risk partner. she had been with 4 guys before me and i only found out after we had sex because i started worrying and asked her. i used a condom of course but i cant help but to be scared. she says she has nothing or has never had anything but has unprotected sex and used condoms only sometimes when she was with the other guys. im am so scared that i haven't been able to concentrate on anything but this since it happened. i was tested for gonorrhea and chlamydia but they were both negative. im am so scared of getting herpes or HIV that all i do is look up symptoms for herpes and HIV. i have not had and bumps, leisons or anything since the sex. i do feel a mild itch on my scrotum and anus but nothing hurts at all. everything looks normal. i went to planned parenthood a little after it happened and the nurse said that nothing looks like herpes and she was 99 percent sure i didnt have it. but from what i read on the internet most people are asymptomatic and have no symptoms so i was still scared. i also tried to check in my anus and noticed like a red what looks like a tear but idk what a normal anus looks like inside and when i touch inside it nothing hurts. im afraid i my be irritating it because im always checking inside it. im not gay at all but i know herpes can still get inside the anus. im gonna take a herpes blood test in june to see if i have it. Im so scared it was only just one encounter and i used protection but i could have contracted it and i feel so stupid for even having sex with her. she said she had nothing so i believed her so easily ugh im such an idiot. i cant remember if any of my body actually made contact with her besides my protected penis. i also fingered her and and masturbated with both my hands but were switching them on and off while i fingered her. i had the condom on while i was masturbating and fingering her. i did put my finger in her mouth while and then kissed her not to long after but she had no signs of blistering lips or any sign of oral herpes. i asked her and she said that she has never had a UTI or yeast infection or anything down there that would seem like herpes but she could be asymptomatic so im scared and 3 months is a long time to wait to take a blood test i feel my mind wont be eased till then. we only had sex for like 10 minutes and i went and the condoms didn't break and i went and washed my hands but only just ran water over them and i dont remember if it was hot or cold. i did masturbate in the bathroom a little too with my bare hands. she didnt go down on me and i didn't go down on her at all. im just so worried idk what to do. does it sound like i could have gotten herpes or HIV? i feel fine besides the mild itching but nothing else is bothering me.

    • ANSWER:
      I think your just really freaked out and continue to think too much about the negative effects that its really going to bother you. Truth is you have the risk of catching HIV from any transfer of bodily fluids, you had a condom on so her fluids didnt get in you and yours not in her. Herpes usually flares up like 1-2 weeks after but yes in some cases you have no symptoms for a long time but usually so Ive read and heard the first out break of herpes is the worst and you usually get them after 1-2 weeks itchy,red, burning all those symptoms. I used to always read into "Oh no!! What if I have HPV and I dont find out till my yearly exam!" honestly my best advice is if the doctor gives you an answer BELIEVE IT! I went and got an exam 3 times in 3 months before and everytime my doctor said "99% positive you dont have HPV". Your going through some hypochondria right now (thinking you have things you dont) and a doctor could tell you anything and your still going to worry. Doesnt sound like she has anything or you and you took all the right steps to safe sex. It is also against the law for her to tell you she doesnt have HIV if she knows she has it. Think positive if the doctor doesnt think you have anything then you dont, they know they see your test results and they're experts. Dont worry but keep that June test for herpes just to ease your mind as you continue to get over your worry.

  22. QUESTION:
    I don't know what to do, may have herpes?
    I don't know what to do. I am so scared I think I have herpes 1 on mouth and genitals. I made a mistake and you know by doing what. At the time I was not with my girlfriend. We broke up, and then got back together. I love her so much but do not want to infect her. I don't want to infect her. This sucks because I was going to marry her. I can't now. I know from a blood test I am positive for herpes 1. Symptoms: I had burning when urinating, dr. gave me some meds and that went away. Had some burning groin area, now have a purplish red spot that is really sensitive on the head of my penis, also at the base it seems as though I get what looks like crack with a liquid in it. but when I touch it if feels sensitive and the liquid just rubs off. Not blisters. My lips get really numb and have been burning and cracking. I had a few bumps on the inside of my lip and a couple of what looked like small canker soars. What I have doesn't look really bad and doesn't look like the pic on the internet but it is not normal. The discomfort I feel is mostly when my cloths rub against that spot. Once in a while it feels like it is burning a little bit. NOt sure if that is becuase I am constantly looking at it and rubbing it to see if it hurts. I may have rubbed a little raw. and when my lips burned for a few days. I am freaking out. Anyone who reads this and finds out that they are clean remember this. My life is over. For something so stupid. I can't eat, sleep, live. I live with my girfriend and dog. I can't kiss my girlfriend or sleep with her because I am affraid I will transfer it to her. My life is over... I hate myself and that girl so much that ruined my life. All I had to do was walk away from that girl, wait a couple of weeks and me and my girlfriend would be back together and perfect. I think god hates me. Any advice would be appreciated I am at the end of my rope. Im scared what my future may be.

    • ANSWER:
      Your life isn't over. And that's what you get for not using a condom. Herpes affects men less than women. I've done a lot of research on the subject, because I too have herpes, and I'm a woman. It isn't easy to be completely honest about having an STD, but you have to honest with this girl. If she really loves you she will forgive you.
      Ok, the first outbreak is usually the worst. You can make it go away with lysine. Lysine is a natural amino acid found in foods and can be found in vitamin form. Do the research on the internet and eat foods high in lysine, here's a few. Avocado, eggs, American cheese, meat. Once the blisters go away and the sores heal, take care of your immune system. You will have an outbreak if you lower your immune system, with too much alcohol, stimulants like speed or coke, and avoid getting stressed out emotionally.
      And for heaven sake, don't touch it, keep all of it as dry as possible. The liquid from the blisters is contagious. Meaning if you touch the liquid with your finger and touch any mucus membrane or your eye you will spread it and you don't want to do that. If you want to be sure about it, have the blisters tested by your doctor. Herpes can appear to look like a crack or fissure so just let it heal.

  23. QUESTION:
    Could I be HIV positive from these activities?
    So I went a little nuts and took my addiction to painkillers to the next step and started shooting them IV. Nobody knows except my brother as he's done it before as well and I needed to talk to someone about it. I did it for 6 months and then went straight onto Methadone Maintenance 4 months ago and haven't cheated once. The methadone has worked 100%, I don't miss the IV use because I now have my life back and I'm NOT dropping 0/day anymore on pills in order to shoot up.

    I've NEVER shared needles with anyone of the people I was hangin' with while doing the IV drugs. I would just go to the local HIV society or a local drug store for free bags of needles/alcohol swabs and sterile water for injection.

    There was one time where I had a scare though. .....

    I made a large mix and was going to share it with my friend. I had a clean needle and took the first hit out of the cup. My friend took the second wash with a clean needle, I took the third(with my dirty needle) and she took the fourth. My friend swore up and down that she used a clean needle to pull the second wash, therefore, I would never have been exposed to any dirty needles entering the wash, however she would have been exposed to me entering my dirty needle on the third wash. She didn't seem to be worried about doing this.

    She is a HARDCORE crack, ice, meth, and pill injector. She is covered in sores all over her body from picking at her skin. Both her and her boyfriend are the same. She is otherwise pretty healthy besides being malnourished and really bad teeth. I know she and her boyfriend have Hep C.

    I also borrowed two spoons from her too cook my meds but I cleaned them thoroughly with alcohol swabs and then heated it with my lighter to evaporate it before I used it to heat the drugs.

    I am being completely honest here and I now have my life back on track and am in university. My husband does not know, only my brother.

    I haven't been sick like the flu, but since I stopped using the IV meds, I have gained 50 lbs, have pitting edema on my feet, calves and ankles, my doctor has detected an atrial gallop in my heart which I am getting an Ultrasound done for in two weeks. I have also developed high blood pressure. The doctor thinks its from the obesity, but I have been this big before and lost the weight and it was NEVER accompanied by those other symptoms.

    The other thing is, I have genial herpes. I've had them since my husband and I married 10 years ago. He had them before I met him. I quite often get bad outbreaks in my genital area and on my face. In fact, I had a really high fever a few years ago and I broke out in such bad fever/herpes blisters all over my face. Since I've been on the Methadone lately, I've had a continuose outbreak on my right foot by my pink toe and down the side of my foot. Is this a sign of hiv infection? Or would it be just because of my history of genital and mouth herpes x 10 yrs and stress that is causing this outbreak on my foot. My husband had an outbreak on his foot about 5 years ago that took a long time to go away. He gets them on his penis as well.

    I just want to be careful, but I am scared shitless of getting tested for hiv. I was hanging out with some pretty scummy homeless dudes. But just to remind you, I always had my own needles, and only shared gear(not needle) the one wash that I told you about, but she swore she used a clean needle which wouldn't have put me at risk. I outright asked her like 5 times if she had hiv or aids because of how rough she looked and she said each time "no way, I would tell you for sure, but I do have Hep C". I know her sister who is a lot older than her and she is also Hep C positive and does the occasional IV use with us. She lives with her husband and has a normal family life. I also asked her at least three times if she thought her sister had HIV. She replied "No way, not that I know of and she would tell me cuz she tells me everything". This kinda put my mind at ease cuz her older sister is a lot more together and
    I just sorta wanted to know what the probability would be that what happened (maybe she used a dirty needle in the mix we were dipping into) could cause me to get it. A lot of her close friends that I've asked are like, "god I hope not cuz we've shared geared", or no way she doesn't have hiv.
    The seven months since usinPl

    • ANSWER:
      I would be extremely worried. I would be both worried about the hepatitis C & the aids. They are both blood diseases. Both show up in like 6 months or all the signs will show or they will test positive on blood tests at 6 months i should say. I would go take tests for hep & aids. Then retest again in another 3 months.

  24. QUESTION:
    Do I have herpes simplex virus? ?
    Frequently over the past year since I have been with this guy, I have gotten blisters
    And thrash on my lips. Him and I frequently made out and he gave me oral sex once. After that I got frequent colds, was diagnosed with mono, had a few rashes on my body such as hives, and a few months after mono I came down with pnuemonia, and after that I got a cold here and there and my legs and arms had broken out in a rash for about two weeks straight. Through all of that time and currently now I have had low blood pressure ranging anywhere for 89/34-100-60, and I have been tired and cold a lot. Also, on and off I would get blisters on my lips inside and partially outside and they would remain there for a few days, and they happen when I haven't burned my mouth or anything. I am currently in an "outbreak" of this and I have blisters in my mouth and then one on the opening of my lip. It seems I have a constant thick layer of gums or something that is easy to bite off accompanying these blisters. Also, when I was first getting these blisters a few days ago, my gums were bleeding when I brushed my teeth. Also, I read that genital herpes can have no symptoms or could be very hard to tell when you have symptoms, but over the past year since I have been with that guy I have had itching and a slight burning off and on in the genital area and I sometimes have an abnormal discharge. Is it possible I have hsv? Thank you for any help.

    Herpes....or nothing?
    So off and on over the past year since I've been with this guy I have had "outbreaks" of blisters in my mouth and some on my lip. After being with the guy I had mono for about two months then later came down with pneumonia. But on my upper lip and bottom lip like inside I would get a white coating of stuff that was easy to bite off, and it doesnt take force to bite off, but when I bit it off blisters would appear. These blisters look different than others I have had before..they take a while to heal, about a week or longer and they vary in size and are kind of gross to look at sometimes, because in the morning they turn yellow and sometimes light green. I even can hear them bubble a little bit sometimes. Maybe they are canker sores? This week I have one on the outside of my lip and a few on the inside. I also get what looks like little clusters of small blisters but I can't tell if that is the white stuff or the blisters. Right now over the past week I have had a total of about five blisters and I have two right now that are taking a while to go away and I have had the white coating stuff also. Also, in the beginning of the week I spit out some blood after brushing me teeth..but that's normal I guess. I'm just really debating whether I should get checked out by a doctor or not because it's pretty expensive to be tested and I don't want to waste the time worrying when it's most likely nothing. I'm actually not worried at all right now, I'm just trying to be cautious I guess. A little background on the guy that I was with is that he has had multiple sex partners before me and he gave me oral sex. Ever since I was with him I even experienced some abnormalities in the genitals but I just shrugged it off as nothing or convinced myself it was normal. Im just debating whether I should spend the time and Money on seeing a doctor.. Serious answers please. ..please don't say I'm a hypochondriac from the frequency of asking these questions..

  29. QUESTION:
    Is it likely i have some kind of std or herpes?
    This is a long story but I'm going to try to make it brief. A while ago a guy who has had multiple sex partners and is known kind of as a man whore gave me oral sex around a year and a half ago. He kissed me a lot and did other things to me but we did not have intercourse. Very shortly after being involved with him I got sick very often and was later diagnosed with mono. After mono I was sick a lot and then was diagnosed with pneumonia. Also, before mono, I broke out in hives for thee days. Off and on through the months of all of this I would.often break out with thrush in my mouth. Now it was never severe, but it was a white coating that is easily bitten off in my mouth. I had a break out two months ago and I had over five blisters form in my mouth and the outbreak lasted a little over two weeks. Now I'm currently in an outbreak but its not as bad.as my last one. I pretty much only have two blisters in my mouth with some thrush. Usually, when I bite the thrush off, blisters appear and they aren't canker sores I'm pretty sure. I have a very low blood pressure of and average of like 92/50 and my spleen hurts and feels swollen every day. Its almost like a heart burn feeling and it feels like my spleen is swelling, but I'm a pretty healthy girl with a balanced diet and I work out regularly and drink a lot of water. There is some vaginally abnormalities, but they could also be normal such as the abnormal periods, occasional itch that I never believe is a yeast infection cause it goes away, and discharge sometimes that could also be very normal. I am fatigued a lot and lately haven't been very hungry although I still eat a balanced diet every day. Sometimes I find it hard to swallow and sometimes I gag after I eat, but I never throw up. I'm always very cold but that's probably from the low blood pressure. Those are most of the symptoms but that's the main point. Please answer seriously...thank you very much.

  31. QUESTION:
    Vaginal Rash. Genital Herpes or Diaper Rash.Need answers ASAP?
    could wearing pantylliners for years nonstop cause a rash on vagina lips? I have had discharge since Ive been raped(my stepdad molested me since I was 10 yr old) anyway Ive had the discharge tested and I have usually been diagnosed with a yeast infection or bacterial vaginosis, I had have an overgrowth of yeast infection and Ive been on meds for it but it never gets rid of the discharge, anyway Ive been on antibiotics alot for BV and I think its gotten rid of my good bacteria and yeast. But my question is do wearing pantyliners cause a rash on vagina lips, it doesn't hurt but it itches sometimes, my dr thought I had genital herpes so I was prescribed cream but it didnt get rid of it, so it must not be genital herpes right? I showed I had Herpes Simplex 1 in my blood, but everytime they test the rash for stds it comes up negative. Why? Could the pantyliner cause the rash for wearing them for 8 years nonstop? My STD screening came back negative besides the HSV1

    Plus if it was an std wouldnt it spread? My bf said he never got it and since my stepdad was molesting me and having sex with my mom, she said she never got it.

    Also Im very very moist down there

    I had a fever blister/cold sore on my mouth on lower lip and the meds gets rid of it, but doesnt work against the rash. Why? Could I have a diaper rash from wearing liners everyday for more than 4years?

    Also if it was genital herpes wouldn't the rash go away and come back occassionaly?
    The rash i have doesn't go away its like just there. Also I decided to sleep without panties last night and I have to say I feel alot better without wearing a liner, the rash is like going away. I start to wonder if its the liner that is causing the rash.
    Ive been to different doctors, they know I have HSV1 and they said it doesn't look like genital herpes, they also know my history of recurrent yeast infections, im a borderline diabetic. Im just so confused, I pray that its from the liner, since Ive been wearing them most of my life. Im now 19 and because of my stupid stepdad I had to wear them since I was like 12, so yeah he put me through alot, and I wanted to press charges but my mom was like dont do it because she could end up in jail, and my brother will be taken away from here and etc.

    The rash doesn't itch really bad just a very minor itch, thats like once in awhile, never painful, never burns. When I had a cold sore on my mouth, and if I touched it, ill use germ x afterwards. I had the rash tested while it was there, and it still comes back negative. So confused.

    • ANSWER:
      I'm glad to hear that you are moving on from your stepdad.. I think you are producing excess discharge because of the panty liner thus causing a rash either from 1) the liner it self do to friction or 2) the discharge itself. Discharge has a high Ph level and can irritate the skin. If your vaginal area is red it could be a yeast infection, again from the lack if air.

      Try sleeping pantyless or in only cotton panties and don't use harsh soap. I discovered that if I wash with anything other than summers eve I produce a lot of discharge. Try only using water and nothing scented for a week or two.

      Good luck to you.

  32. QUESTION:
    Is it herpes or a rash?
    I met this guy about a 5 weeks. We had unprotected sex (I know stupid). Well, we are about to get together again and he calls me and tells me that he had a small rash show up on his skin (above his penis on his lower abdomen) and that his doctor told him that it is herpes. I am freaking out. He doctor told him it is herpes because that it what it looks like. He had a blood test done and is awaiting results. I have an appointment tomorrow to get checked and have blood work done. I saw his rash and it is really small. It doesn't look like there is fluid in it and it's not a blister. It's some small red dots.

    I am freaking out here.

    Do herpes show up on other areas besides the penis at the onset? I haven't had any symptoms and have no visible reason to be worried. Everything looks normal to me. If he had an outbreak wouldn't I too? Like wouldn't both of us also have some types of blisters or something on our mouths as well? Does it sound like herpes?

    • ANSWER:
      Genital herpes is anything below the waist. It could be on his abdomen, thigh, buttocks, etc. The outbreaks can be so mild that most people don't realize they have herpes. Approximately 80% that have herpes don't know it. It's possible he had it before you met and that you don't have it.

  35. QUESTION:
    could it be genital herpes?
    hi guys im really freaking out right now so any help would be greatly appreciated!

    8 days ago i had PROTECTED oral (receiver) and vaginal intercourse with a girl i met at a club in mexicali, mexico. we both a bit drunk but we did not kiss or swap any kind of saliva or anything, and i didn't even ejaculate or pre-cum or anything! the only thing is that she put the condom on me with her mouth, and it looked like a mexican-brand condom that i had never seen before. immediately after the encounter i started to feel a slight tingling sensation on the tip of my penis (i'm circumsized btw), which continued for a couple of days.

    Day 4- tingly sensation now feels like a warm, burning feeling on tip, innner foreskin and area just below waist. not painful, but irritating. i also begin to develop herpes-like symptoms (shortness of breath, rapid heartbeat, irritability, drowsiness, muscle aches, itching, lack of sleep, etc.) because i was super paranoid about having contracted an STD. except everyone i talked to said that it's just severe anxiety.

    Day 5 - i went to a general medical clinic to request a blood and urine test, as well as a herpes check. the doctor examined my penis and said it looks fine, and that it's most likely just some kind of irritation or allergy

    Day 7 - by then my severe anxiety symptoms had continued, now accompanied by sudden warm feelings on my inner right thigh that felt as if a warm fluid of some kind would ooze out of my penis and run down my leg, only to discover that there was nothing.also, a small pink spot appeared (not a bump or blister) on the inner shaft where the foreskin folds. i gwent to the doctor's office again for the results and they ALL came back negative! But since i was still having symptoms i requested to see a doctor again. a different doctor this time checked my penis and told me everything looked fine. at that time i was super relieved that at least i didn't have HIV

    now being day 8, the rest of my symptoms have lessened except the burning, irritated penis and the warm feeling on my inner thigh.even worse, the area just below the head and a small area where the foreskin foldsare looking rather red and feel more irritated when touched. still no blisters or ulcers though.

    am i looking too much into it due to anxiety? is it an allergic reaction (maybe to latex/friction or something?) would i have blisters/sores by now? how would i be able to tell if i have genital herpes???

    Thanks in advance
    forgot to mention that the first doctor i spoke to prescribed me a cream/lotion to rub on the irritated area twice a day. could this be contributing to the irritation?

    since seeing the rash, some of my previous symptoms are beginning to manifest again, but only when i think or worry about the possibility of a disease. anxiety, or sign of a herpes outbreak???

    • ANSWER:
      You should wait for a while, if it is herpes it can take a few weeks before it shows up in a test. Viruses are tricky that way. My first test came up negative. BAHAHA.. not cool.
      In addition to that, you should have a full panel STD test run, including the AIDS test (which costs extra, but then again you didn't know this girl). Usually if you have herpes symptoms and you keep getting negative results it may be syphilis.
      Just calm down, take some l-lysine (it helps herpes, in case that's what it is) and wait about a week and retake the tests. Until then, abstain from sexual activity.
      Hopefully it's nothing and it's just an allergy, but STDs are serious and you should get tested again just to be sure.

  36. QUESTION:
    vaginal cuts or herpes after sex?
    Hi. I was wondering if this has happened to any other women before. i started getting these like cuts around my vaginal opening after sex. They seem to look like long tearing of the top layer of skin. Kinda like when you bite you inner check. Not like a bite that turns into a canker sore tho like a scrape. Or even when yu have chapped lips and you rip the top layer of skin off and yu can see its red with the other layer of skin around where its not ripped. It hurts really bad though becus its so close to the urethra in my vagina. I took a blood test the first time it happened for herpes and it came back negative. I dont even get cold sores around my mouth so i assume i dont have type 1 or 2. But i also hear about false negative blood tests. What are the chances of me having a false negative? I was also using the nuvaring around this time and didnt take it out during sex. So when i stopped using it, i didnt get them anymore. Now though im gettin them again but my bf thinks its because i was taking the diet pill phetermine. Which is in the class of ampthemines so he thinks those pills dried me out and caused friction burns from not being wet enough. Im really a worryier. I always flip out when anything goes wrong down there. I have gotten these before when i was younger but my lips would swell.And the cuts would be just on my lips more. these ones are more less the same without the swelling but deeper in my entrance and hurt more. And my partner now is the biggest ive had he seems average but its the width that feels painful. Am i over reacting? They dont look like canker sores they dont crust up when they heal. They dont look like multiple blisters and they dont come out on their own. But they do occur sometimes not all the time after sex only. Does this sound like herpes? I would think i would have an outbreak on my own not just only after sex? Can sex be a only trigger for an outbreak? Should i retest or just start using more lube?..thanks for any advice yu can throw out there

    • ANSWER:
      You're focusing only on herpes. You may have some other type of STD. Ask your gynecologist or primary doctor to do an STD panel.

  37. QUESTION:
    Just a canker or herpes?
    for as long as I can remember, I have had cankers pop up in my mouth for no reason...this would happen maybe 4 times a year. For the past 3 months it seems as if I have constantly had just one in my mouth (as soon as 1 heals, another pops up) and more recently they have been on my tonsils. I asked my doctor and without a second thought she said its probably herpes and there's nothing I can do about it before she sent me on my way. I am pregnant so I realize there are only limited things that can be done but she didn't swab my mouth or do a blood test or anything! I've never had a fever blister but could I have a form of oral herpes?

    • ANSWER:
      Canker sores are herpes. While active, your contagious.

  38. QUESTION:
    Which herpes simplex do I have?
    I had a very small wart come up on the shaft of my penis, I went to the doctor and he said it looked like nothing and he froze it off. I wanted to go ahead and get tested for STD's since I have never been tested before, and when the blood tests came in it showed I was negative for all Stds except Herpes Simplex. The doctor told me he had no way in telling me which one I had, he said when he sent the test it will either come back positive herpes simplex 1 & 2 or negative herpes simplex 1 & 2. I was wondering which one do you think I have? I have never had an outbreak of blisters or anything that I have read in my mouth, nor on my genital area. I have not been with alot of people sexually, I'm just wondering which one you think I would have. It also through me off because the doctor said my antibodies were good. Can someone help me? Do you think I'm just a carrier of hsv-1?

    • ANSWER:
      many of those symptoms lead to HIV, and it is not uncommon to have a negative test result when you are actually HIV positive. get retested.. but overall sounds like you just named everything you could think of.

      -vaginal discharge: normal
      -skin tags: normal
      -sores: possible STD
      - bump on cervix: might actually be the cervix, if you gyno can't see it, im sure it's fine
      - etc..

      start thinking about what's changed recently versus worrying so much about the little things. that's what confuses doctors, when you talk about 100 different things when really the worst symptom is the cause of everything else

      your thyroid problem is most likely causing your lymph nodes to be swollen, as well as most of the symptoms above

      as for the acne.. it is stress induced.. and you seem to be very stressed.

      i suggest stop taking so much medications, consult more doctors until you're satisfied, they know what your blood work reveals, not us

  41. QUESTION:
    contracted herpes, bled when i tried to have intercourse very painful?
    Over two weeks ago I found out I had contracted herpes type 1 from my boyfriend. He had it on his mouth and even though he wasn't showing symptoms at the time, I contracted it in my genitals. I have been to the doctors and had tests and it shows it is only type 1 and I took antibiotics for this. The blisters and sores only fully healed about 2 days ago and yesterday we tried to have intercourse for the first time again, he barely touched me he was only at the opening of my vagina and it stung so much I was in alot of pain it felt like the hole had shrunk so i told him to wait and i felt down there and when i pulled my hand up it had blood on my fingers. It wasn't heavy and we had a shower and i washed and a little more came out but no more came out after the shower. I don't know if this is normal so soon after I caught herpes? should I be concerned? my opening couldn't have shrunk in size in just 2 weeks, could there still be a sore further inside that got irritated when he I tried to insert his penis in. any answers would be greatly appreciated I will talk to the doctors as soon as possibly but they are not open on a sunday. thanks for your help
    I am on the pill but no where near my period so it would not be that

  42. QUESTION:
    Female Red Tabby cat with odd mouth issues, freckles, sores, inflamed gums?
    I have a female red tabby cat that is about 18 months old. She seems to have chronic inflamed gums, mostly in the back. She also seems to have developed freckles or dark spots on her lips and gums and lately what appear to be fever-blister like swelling on her lips. We've had her to our vet who has seen the inflamed gums. We periodicaly put her on Clind-Guard (anti-biotic) to treat her gums which helps but only temporarily. We also have her on Bayho Liquid Immo (L-Lysine) and a number of supplements (C, E and Q10). She also get fresh spinach and yogurt with her wet food every day. We do all of this to keep her immune system strong. My question is do all of these symptoms have anything in common? For example Feline herpes/Lentigo Simplex or am I dealing with multiple things. Our vet says the freckles are normal in female red tabby cats and some cats have chronic inflamed gums. We have tested her blood but he has never mentioned feline herpes. Any idea what I'm dealing with??
    Hi...we brush her teeth every night and she does get tartar control food & treats. The vet thinks it is not an issue of there being any mouth infection or need for teeth cleaning causing any of these issues.
    PS Our vet is very good. This is not a case of a poor vet more a case of trying to correlate all of these issues.
    As I said our vet feels the freckles are perfectly normal in female red tabby cats (lentigo simplex) and that the gums are potentially a chronic problem that we will have to periodically have to treat with anti-biotics and boosting her immune system. She has not been to the vet for the blister-like gums since they are very recent. Our clinic is 1st class, best in our area and one of the most knowledeable vets in the state. State of the art operating suites...really nice place, really intellegent vet. He also offer very hollistic approaches including accu-puncture...I have complete confidence in him but I do think it is valuable to seek opinions from other cat owners who may have experienced these exact issues. I'm not doubting or second guessing, just doing additional research.
    Confusing since the cat doesn't appear to be affected in any way. She's perfectly normal and healthy/happy otherwise. I'm not attempting to be stubborn and I do care about my kitty. I think the Get a new vet comment was out of line but get a 2nd opinion is fair. I'm trying to find another cat owner that is dealing with the same symptoms or has delat with the same symptoms more so that questioning our veterenarian care. Again getting a 2nd opinion is a fair answer just not exactly what I was looking for.

    • ANSWER:
      Get a new vet.

      First of all, your cat needs to have her teeth cleaned. Without all of that infection in her mouth, you may find that all of her problems clear up.

  43. QUESTION:
    Can herpes heal in 8 hours?
    Yesterday, I noticed that a part of my lips was very red and I had a like a giant blister (not x small ones) from the top of the lips (noting on the skin).

    I wen to bed and after 8 hours, I had NOTHING.

    Can it be herpes ?

    I made some blood test 1 year ago and had no herpes at all.

    My girlfriend has type 1 Herpes and I suspect type 2 (her test was not clear, she was in the limit).

    My mouth touched her sex last week. So could it be a primo-infection of herpes 2 ?

    I know that herpes can have no symptoms but if you have some can they vanish in 8 hours?

    Thanks
    It could only be ORAL herpes, oral meaning on the mouth.

    Both type 1 or type 2 can be oral.

    But as type 2 is more often on sex and is less agressive on lips, I was wondering if my sore wasn't an ORAL herpes from type 2.

    I never had any cold sore before and I get tested negative for both herpes 1 year ago and only kissed this girl from my test.

    May be she gave me an oral herpes oif type 1 in the past but my question is still "can thi sore be a herpes sore, knowing that is went away in less than 8 hours (it was away after 8 hours of sleeping but could have gone after 5 hours, I can not know"
    What do you call "mild" ?

    My sore was very visible, swollen and red, visible on pics I took of my face.
    Doctors know very few about herpes.

    And I could tell if it was herpes by knowing if herpes can only last 8 hours once the first symptoms (not mild) appears

    • ANSWER:
      Not unless you have a super strong immune system or a very mild out break. Herpes takes about a week or 2 to heal.
      It could be oral herpes, that type is very common to have. It's what causes cold sores and occurs around the mouth, 50-90 percent of the world has it and it's commonly passed by kissing.
      Genital herpes (on the genitals) is not usually passed to the mouth either. The only way for that to happen would be if you gave her oral sex while she had a genital out break.
      You can have herpes and have no symptoms but it doesn't normally go away that fast.
      If you want to know for sure have a doctor test you for HSV1 (oral herpes) and HSV2 (genital herpes).

  44. QUESTION:
    If both partners have HSV-1, can blisters on the genitals cause the other person to have an outbreak?
    My girl friend and I both tested positive for herpes, HSV-1, she has it only genitally as far as we know and I have never shown any symptoms of it anywhere on my body, i know its normally found in the mouth, but she has it on her vagina, but I tested positive for it in from a blood test, we want to have sex but were wondering if her blisters can cause me to have an outbreak even though i've never shown symptoms? or vice versa if I eventually develop them? thanks a lot

    • ANSWER:
      You can get both types of herpes on any mucous membrane, genitals or mouth or anus. HS 1 is more common on you mouth though.
      even though you both have it, you could have different strains and therefore infect each other and pass the 2 strains to each other.
      You may have been infected a long time ago or just be non symptomatic.
      The longer you have any type of herpes, the fewer outbreaks you get and the less severe they become.
      It's best to just avoid contact with blisters. Sometimes they can be so small you don't see them. Its a small risk but a risk just the same.

      The difference between love and herpes is : Herpes is forever :)

  45. QUESTION:
    Could i have contracted oral herpes?
    Ok i was smoking cannabis with one of my buddy friends, i later found out, he has HIV, im pretty sure i dident contract HIV through a pipe, but, im not sure if he has oral herpes, i smoked with him i think about 2 weeks ago, and maybe one time 3 weeks before that, and i was kind of sick, never had a fever, i had a sore throat, was about it, but now i have an ulser inside my mouth, below my bottom lip at the bottom of my mouth, the area next to it is a little bit red, i can see a purplish blood vessel, i had an ulser on my lip on the inside about 2 weeks ago, that went away fast, and i got this one, theres no "tingling" as iv read on the internet, no fever, my lympnodes on my neck are slightly swollen, but theres been no cold sores,blisters and what not that iv read on the internet
    by the way, whenever i hit the little pipe we were smoking out of, i wiped the mouthpiece before each time i hit it
    so does anyone think i might have contracted herpes, or have it? quick replys are appreciated! thank you!!!

    • ANSWER:
      Lets get one thing straight (just in case) herpes is not hiv.
      You could get oral herpes but the chance of getting hiv would be low, plus oral herpes are way more common to have then hiv, 50-90 percent of the world has cold sores which are usually caused by oral herpes. Most of the time they are passed by kissing relatives or friends during child hood.
      When an out break is triggered you can feel kind of sick specially if it's an initial out break or if you haven't had an out break in a long time.
      But what you had sounds morel ike a canker sore which is not related to herpes. Oral herpes can but doesn't commonly occur on the inside of the mouth. It likes to occur on the lips and around the lips.
      If the person you shared the pipe with had an out break of cold sores then you could get cold sores too if you used it with in seconds of him using it. Herpes doesn't survive on objects or away from the body for more then seconds. Since you wiped it down you would have little to no risk of getting cold sores or hiv.

  46. QUESTION:
    Blister's on lips not herpes?
    I get blister's on my lips. I found out it happens when I consume something that has apples in it. often a surpise. I do not have herpes. one time drank several apple juice's in a day and I had hundreds of Kanker sores from the lips,mouth into the throat, the Dr said don't drink apple juice but never said anything else. It feels like i have a temperature but it doesn't show up on a thermometer, then i get one in a few hours, Joining the military at 19 they noticed my B12 count low but not bad they didn't do anything. 3 1/2 years later when my vision was getting real bad the doc assumed i was trying to get a pass then noticed I didn't have any reflexes. Well turns out at 23 I had sevre pernicous anemia, little red blood cells, methylmalonic acid through the roof, I think a megaloblastic state, and morphology of the cells. something like that.

    • ANSWER:
      you better consult a doctor for whatever health problems you encounter lately...doctor can give you right treatment...

      for your blister on the lips... i'm not sure if its herpes but there are two types of herpes, on the lips and genital area.. let your doctor explain more to you about this...

      for your B12 problem - folic acid cap or cyacobalamine cap are good treatment for b12 defeciency.

      if you have anemia or red blood cells problem that means you might have B12 defeciency .

      see a hematologist or a blood doctor...

  47. QUESTION:
    Do I have herpes or a couple of other random things with all the symptoms?
    Okay, here it is.. this past week i was hospitalize with a bad UTI. the pain will peeing was hurting so bad.. Then all of a sudden i had a fever of about 102 on average. And it wouldn't go down no matter what. while in the hospital these ingrown hairs i thought i had gotten infected. and I started breaking out in these blisters, sometimes happens when I use pads instead of tampons which i had no choice. Anyways. they tested me for herpes to make sure they could rule it out. and gave me anti viral meds about 3 days ago to kill whatever it was in the process.. However if it was herpes shouldn't have at least subsided a little bit? Peeing is a hassle, I usually gotta put a towel in my mouth to scream as i pee. that's how bad it is.. And my fever is still juggling back and forth. Any ideas of what it could be?

    I also think i might have had a miscarriage because my supposed period, gushed out a lot more blood than usual and i'm on the mirena. I dunno i really need some soothing answers.. just so much is running thru my mind. And they tested me for herpes 2 days ago and still nothing..

    2. When kissing someone while they have a cold sore that is scabbed over (avoiding that side of the mouth it is on) can you still get it?
    [[[yes... correct? Cause it's all in the saliva..]]]

    3. Someone of the same blood line as you has had it, facial herpes their whole life, you might have gotten it from a friend... does it react the same way to you as it does to your relative, or your friend more. OR does is it different for everyone?

    4. what's the BEST treatment/prevention ointment-cream-whatever, to use?

    Uh, i believe that is all i need to know about facial herpes, well for now. Might have more question in the near future...

    Please & Thanks :D

    • ANSWER:
      The first signs are usually the tingle/itch but sometimes you dont even get those before the blister.

      You can catch oral herpes at pretty much any stage, even before an outbreak (it could be active in the saliva before its visible on the lip). Of course the blister and scab phases do seem to be more contagious no matter what side of the mouth youre kissing.

      Each person will react to herpes in their own way. Heredity and where you caught it means nothing. I do have a theory that sensitive skinned people tend to have more severe reactions.

      The best prevention is to avoid kissing people with blisters. Once youve caught herpes the best prevention is to keep yourself well hydrated and avoid stress and trigger foods (spicy, citrusy, etc.) For outbreaks, Abreva works well. So does a paste of baking soda and water. Ive heard good things about Valtrex.

  50. QUESTION:
    Do I have Herpes? No actual Symptoms...?
    Okay, this is what is going on... I was with my girlfriend for 3 months, last time we had sex was about 6 weeks ago. On Thursday of this past week she spoke to me and said that she was tested positive for herpes, she said her ex before me was cheating on her and thats how she contracted it. Now I never noticed anything on her, and I did check her out before having sex and going down on her.

    I haven't had any signs of Herpes in the last 5 or 6 weeks. So she must of not had an outbreak. I went to the doctor this past week, he checked out my penis, scrotum, etc.. and didnt find anything. He saw my mouth, lips, gums, and nothing. So he said that there really isn't a herpes test, that the only way is to get a blister and then check?? He said that even with a blood test he wont be able to tell, but I told him to give me one any, so i'm waiting for the results. In the mean time he said i should be on a anti-biotech for five days (400mg Acyclovir)...

    My question is, is this antibiotech suppose to prevent me from having herpes before it actually becomes herpes? I know there is no cure, but I really dont think i have it. I've been under stress lately and no type of outbreak or anything out of the norm has developed.
    Kayt,

    but the thing is that i want to know if i have it.. like my doctor was like "well, do you have blisters? cold sores?" i'm like "no".. he checked and didnt find anything. So how can someone know if they have herpes without any symptoms? So potentially everyone has herpes? lol..
