Can Herpes Be Just One Sore
Can be one or many: Herpes can show up as a single blister or multiple blisters. It just depends on the extent of the disease and the individual. Usually the sore is painful, although sometimes it can just be itchy. If it is painless, however, it could be other possibilities like syphilis. In addition, herpes sores characteristically tend to recur in the same location. ...Read more

Herpes and syphilis: Sexually transmitted diseases are no fun. Therefore docs always recc prevention. Talk to your partner too- it can go along way. Herpes is usually multiple blisters and v painful. Syphilis on the other hand can come up as one sore only that ulcerates and may not be painful. There are other STDs but they are less common. I think you should see a doc and get this treated. ...Read more
See below: Classically, herpes simplex type 2 (hsv-2) is genital herpes and hsv-1 is oral herpes (cold sores). However, cold sores can also be hsv-2. So, if someone has hsv-2, then if they have a genital or oral lesion, you can contract it from them through sex or even kissing or sharing a glass if their cold sore is active and present. ...Read more
I am terrified I may have contracted herpes from a one nighter. She performed unprotected oral. Now I have a sore perineum, very stressed please help?
Probably not herpes: Initial herpes occurs at the points of direct contact; oral-penlle sex would not infect the perineum. Maybe a slight chance if her mouth directly contacted the painful area, but even with vigorous and prolonged contact, the chance of new herpes from a single oral sex exposure is very low, probably around one in many thousand. But get care if the pain continues or if blisters or sores appear. ...Read more

Once you get a herpes sore on your nose do they frequently start showing up there like mouth herpes or is it just one time? :t
Varies: The way herpes behaves is very different from person to person. Some people will have many outbreaks, when under stress or eating trigger foods (peanuts, oatmeal). But others will have no future outbreaks at all. Taking good care of yourself helps. Lysine 500mg daily can suppress outbreaks if they are a problem. Prescription anti-virals can be used too if needed. ...Read more

Herpes: 75% of americans have herpes. 90% of them do not get any outbreak. If you have not had a herpes blood test it is much more likely that you already have been exposed then that this would be a new exposure. And, the bad news continues. Having a sore or not in no way is predictive of contagiousness. Viral shedding happens when there is no sore just as often as it does not happen when one has a sore. ...Read more
White bumps after getting penis scraped with teeth via oral. No pain outside of one day of soreness, no fluid from them, no crusting. Is it herpes?
Not Herpes: Herpes generally causes red lesions, that are quite painful initially & generally last for 10-14 days. Also they generally do not show up right away but take a few days after exposure to get sore. It could be another std but most likely it was just a scrape of the skin from the teeth. I see you say no unprotected sex - did you use a condom for oral? If not, that is unprotected sex! ...Read more

It doesn't pay to confront anyone about where your infection came from, and you should use condoms for sexual activity. Herpes can be treated easily with pills, or cream. ...Read more

How painful is vaginal herpes I have one big pimple like sore can it affect your whole vagina like stinging and smelly fishy odor ?
Maybe not...: Vaginal herpes can be quite painful--especially the first episode. However, a single big pimple is unlikely to be herpes. It is more likely to be an ingrown hair or hydradenitis. The fishy odor is not common to herpes. It usually is a sign of bacterial vaginosis. To know for sure, you need to have an exam. Best wishes! ...Read more

Have one sore red spot on the inner lip of my vagina. It hurt lots initially but is better after a few days. Could it be herpes or would it get worse?
Yes: This could very well be herpes. If you become pregnant it would be very important to have your OB doctor aware of this because it may influence the choice of vaginal vs. C-section delivery. On the other hand this may simply be a clogged gland, another form of std, or other things, and having your doctor examine it is a good idea. ...Read more
