A 32-year-old member asked:

Is it normal to get herpes four time on my lips in two months?

Outbreaks: Herpes virus lives in the nerve cells and will break out periodically. Usually the frequency of outbreaks is more frequent if an acute infection, and less frequently for chronic infections. Not uncommon but see your doctor if you are concerned or if any changes to the outbreak.
Dr. Hunter Handsfield

Probably not herpes: It would be very unusual for herpes to cause 4 outbreaks in only 2 months (i.e. every 2 weeks). Probably this is something other than herpes. See your doctor if it keeps happening.
