Is this HSV 1?

Recommended Posts

I swear it's been like one thing after another lately.


On Monday I went to the dentist because I had severe tooth pain and ended up needing to get a crown and a filling. Afterwards the dentist mentioned that I had a couple bumps on my gum line; he asked if I had taken any medication, i said no and he said it could be a cold sore but that it seemed to be healing. I'm not sure how they were healing because they weren't there before. I inspected them at home and counted 3 little grey white bumps, they didn't hurt to touch, and seemed pretty shallow. Because I have hsv 2, I have valtrex on hand so I started taking that twice a day. But now as of yesterday, my neck is sore, my cheek hurts, and I have no appetite. 1 bump is gone, the other is just red, and one it's still white. These bumps were not clustered together either.


Last time I got tested, I was negative for HSV 1 and I haven't kissed anyone in 9 months. Does an inital hsv1 infection stay dormant that long? I read having type 2 kind of protects you from type 1. Does this sound like type 1 or something else? Maybe relating to my dental work...I can't get an appointment with my doctor for another week or so.
