Help! Burnt/Tingling Tongue Feeling a Sign of HSV1 Prodrome?

Recommended Posts

Hi! Kinda new here but 7 years w/ HSV2. I wrote a whole other thread about my situation, but in a nutshell, I got HSV1 from my ex, never had a cold sore, but when I was kissing my new boyfriend last week something popped out on my lip. Didn't worry too much about it, thought I bit it or something, and anyway I was on antivirals for the HSV2. Turns out it probably was a little cold sore blip and he was DEFINITELY exposed.


I did mention it to him with a brief interchanged where he indicated he may have had them in the past. See other thread for details (Called: I'm terrified I gave my partner cold sores.).


Here's my question: he told me this morning in a text that his coffee and everything he drinks/eats feels carbonated on his tongue, like he burned it. Could this be a prodrome symptom? Could he be developing an initial outbreak?


I've been panicking all day! Please help!!!

I know that this is a little late,  but I just read this post. Possibly. Has your new guy been tested for HSV1? This could also be some sort of food/chemical allergy or oral thrush or even a vitamin deficiency. I had a chemical injury and used to get burning tongue with everything I ate-it went away when I changed my diet and started taking B-12. I still get it if I use certain products. I am not a medical professional, this is just my experience. Did he get checked out by doctor? Hope things are better now for you both.
