Does herpes ulcers have whiteheads in the healing process?

Does herpes ulcers have whiteheads in the healing process?

Not when healing: Herpes lesions generally go from red bump to superficial blister to pimple-like (with pus) to open sore to scab, and then healing, all over a total period of 7-14 days (up to 21 days for the first outbreak). In moist areas (e.g. vulva) ulcers develop earlier and persist longer. So a pimple-like (whitehead) appearance can be present early in an outbreak, but not likely "in the healing process". ...Read more

Salivary glands: You probably bumped or scraped one of them and it became inflamed and swollen. It should go away on its own. Do not go poking at it. Can happen when eating things like chips, crusty bread, and crackers. Good Luck. ...Read more
