I get a yellow crusty sore in my nose frequently? Herpes?

Or impetigo: Yellow crusty sores in the nasal area are usually impetigo (bacterial skin infection) - but if the sore is always in the exact same spot, and starts with painful blisters, it could be herpes simplex. There are treatments for both, so you should see your doctor or a dermatologist the next time it happens, get it cultured, and find out which it is. ...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

Can I get plastic surgery if I have Herpes Zoster in the eye? I want to have my nose and breasts done in the future, will it be possible?

Can I get plastic surgery if I have Herpes Zoster in the eye? I want to have my nose and breasts done in the future, will it be possible?

Zoster or simplex?: Do you mean herpes zoster (shingles) or herpes simplex? Zoster is unlikely to be a problem. Operations on the face and eyes can trigger reactivation of HSV1 in people with oral or facial herpes, usually (but not only) in people with known oral herpes (cold sores, etc). But this can be prevented with anti-herpes treatment if necessary. Breast surgery no problem. Discuss with your plastic surgeon. ...Read more

Can you get oral herpes from someone who u don't kiss but she gives u head but doesn't have any open sores or cold sores and I had no cuts on my d?

Can you get oral herpes from someone who u don't kiss but she gives u head but doesn't have any open sores or cold sores and I had no cuts on my d?

Possible but unlikel: Hi Roy. It's possible for someone to shed the herpes virus and be asymptomatic. People with oral herpes may secrete the virus 2% to 9% of the time when they are not having sores. That being said, if they are asymptomatic and secreting the virus, the amount of virus being shed is much less. You can be tested for infection. I would recommend knowing your sex partner And both of you testing for STD ...Read more

Can my baby get herpes simplex from her head being in close proximity to a cold sore? Also, how long can the virus live on skin?

Be very careful!: Herpes can be very dangerous in newborns up to age 1 month. HSV is transmitted by direct contact with infected sores or tissues. No kissing her until healed and frequently wash hands or use alcohol gel (like PurelĀ®), especially after touching your face. "Head in close proximity" probably is no risk. You might take anti-HSV Rx (e.g. valacyclovir). Call and discuss all this with baby's pediatrician. ...Read more

Asked and Answered: If you are truly positive your HIV doctor has already tested you for everything. I do not understand what psychological benefit you are getting out of repeatedly asking us the same questions here on health tap. Having watched you do this month in and month out makes me wonder about your emotional stability. I would advise you sign off of health tap and go see a real physician. It is past time. ...Read more

Separate problems: Neither HSV2 nor genital herpes can cause altered breath or groin odor, and herpes rarely causes recurrent inflammation or irritation in the groin. These are entirely separate problems. Your question is cut off at "bells", but maybe you mean Bell's palsy? That problem can be related to HSV1, but rarely if ever to HSV2. Discuss w/ your doctor, or get truly expert care at your nearby NHS GUM clinic. ...Read more

See Your Doctor: The description and symptoms given do not sound typical for Herpes however more info is needed such as duration, your medical history (recent/past) and more. Additionally, diagnosis of skin lesions is challenging without visual inspection. The causes for "bumps" are quite numerous: infection, allergy, disease-related, and more. Suggest you see your doctor now for proper diagnosis and treatment ...Read more

Could I have herpes in my nose?

Could I have herpes in my nose?

Yes.: You can have herpes anywhere, but mucous membranes (mouth, nose, genitalia, etc.) are prime locations. On the other hand, the presence of a sore on (or in) your nose does not necessarily mean you have herpes. You'll need to see a doctor or your local public health clinic to find out if it's herpes - or if it's not, what it actually is. ...Read more
