Herpes in mouth

Recommended Posts

I'm seeing from your other posts that you've had HSV-2 for years. I don't know what is going on with your mouth, but if you've had it for years there's basically no way you'd get HSV-2 now in your mouth. I mean, I'm not a doctor or an expert, but the risk of getting it in another location after you've had HSV-2 for a while is, from what I've read, basically unheard of (unless you are immunocompromised because of something like AIDS). When you add in the fact that HSV-2 doesn't typically go for the mouth (although it's possible) your likelihood drops even further.. Obviously, you should talk to a dr. if you're experiencing pain, but I wouldn't be worried about HSV-2.

Thank you for replying I haven’t slept all night! Yes I’ve had it about 2 years I know but I actually think I got It four years ago. I took a HIV tested in June it came back negative!! Maybe it’s just my nerves getting the best of me again.  I woke Up this morning and don’t really see anything in my mouth but my lips are cracked and burning. I have finally learned to live with this but I just don’t want sores on my lips!

So I have the same thing and I’m super paranoid about it like my mouth burns and lips tingle.... is this prodromal symptoms generating to the mouth? I feel like there is no answer. My doc said it’s possible to shed from the mouth but there is no way to really detect that unless there is a sore. I am totally with you it’s super annoying and scary. I do also know that anxiety can cause these symptoms as well...but ya hard to stay calm when you don’t have answers. I hope someone can help us!
