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
Up to you: Its not essential that you treat an out break. As you know the medicine will not cure the infection. It could shorten the duration of symptoms though. ...Read more
Needs examination: Individual diagnosis is not possible in this forum, but is available on HealthTap Prime. A good quality picture would be needed for evaluation on HealthTap Prime, however. Some physicians perform a type of culture on blisters; this of course could not be done by us. ...Read more
Perhaps: Once infected with herpes simplex (usually type 2) on the genitalia the virus remains in your body for life, like a squatter. Even though you may not have overt lesions on your genitals there is good evidence that shedding of the virus in the vagina occurs with regularity. With that history many obstetricians would prefer to deliver your baby through c-section rather than risk neonatal herpes. ...Read more
Good chance: First time around you may get systemic symptoms of fever, chills, malaise, an outbreak of numerous blister-like lesions on the genetalia which will rupture and leave very tender and painful ulcers which may last as long as 10-14days. The female genetalia may become swollen and tender to the point that she cannot walk. The man can develop severe swelling which may partially impede free urination. ...Read more
Would does herpes look like are they cluster of blisters or is is one cut. I had a concie. Reacur.? Cut on clot went to doc but she couldn't take swab
I'll take a shot: I'm not certain of all your words due to typos, but herpes does typically look like a small cluster of blisters on the skin, but on the genital/vulvar tissues it is more like open sores that are ulcerated/have an irregular surface. They are painful and itchy and testing is usually possible. Persist with efforts to get diagnosis if symptoms persist; current & future therapy is specific & effective. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Chances of one having herpes without any blisters or sores but balanitis on foreskin and penis head?
I wouldn't think: The chances are high...those ulcerated lesions are very commonly present in herpes. Balanitis is swelling and inflammation of the foreskin. It's main cause is suboptimal hygiene in the uncircumcised. Symptoms will usually resolve when you rinse (unscented) soap completely off the penis. Low dose OTC topical steroid or anti fungal cream may help. Rarely are other antibiotics needed. USE CONDOMS! ...Read more
I have one blister that's formed on my lower inner thigh. I shaved my legs yesterday but I don't ever recall getting a blister before. Could this be herpes? I do not have any other symptoms but worried this could be a symptom. I know you can't tell me any
Herpes blisters vs friction blisters. What's the difference? Had genital blisters. Went off in one day. Came twice in 1 month. Not painful or itchy?
I've gotten fever blisters since a kid I know it's herpes right but does that mean every time I get one does that mean I can get Bell's palsy? Panic
Not necessarily: We believe Bell's palsy is secondary to herpes simplex, but this virus is already present in most human bodies in the dorsal root ganglion. Activation causing lip inflammation has little to do with an effect on the facial nerve. If you are in "panic" due to your concerns, best to get some counseling to cope better. ...Read more

I have had a fever blister for 2 months will not go away! I have had 2 rounds of valtrex, alcivior now taking topical ointment, not sure why he prescribed one for antifungus nitrate cream, also I have type 1 herpes. And have used countless over the coun
I: I would question whether this is a fever blister given that it has been present for 2 months. Perhaps it is a condition called perleche? I would recommend you see a dermatologist who can examine the area, possible perform a bacterial or viral culture, and give a recommendation. I hope that helps. ...Read more
Do I need to worry about herpes? Had one night stands 17 months ago. No blister or sore so far. Just balanitis on foreskin and penis head for 3 months
How long does the herpes simplex virus (1) last on a finger. -if one touched a present oral blister that hasn't yet opened, then touched another area?
For life.: It's not as bad as it sounds. The first episode is the worst. Recurrences become less and less symptomatic, and less frequent until finally it stops. There is usually an interval of months, or years between attacks. Are you a health care worker? It can defiinitely be transmitted to other areas but for some reason isn't commonly. Good Idea to cover it while you have it with a band aid. ...Read more
Maybe: The herpes family of viruses are very common. Some people will get outbreaks, others who are exposed may never have an outbreak, and only with a blood test will find out they were ever exposed. For those who have outbreaks, they can release the virus before a sore is present, either oral or genital sores. ...Read more
