I on occasion get cold sores in the same spot on my bottom lip. Now I have something that looks like a cold sore on my stomach?

Herpes Vs Syphilis: That is unusual. Do you have the vital herpes blood tests to prove which type or if you have both types of herpes? If you do have the blood tests then i would have a physician look at this to determine if the new sore is a different herpes. (you cannot get herpes elsewhere once you are infected). That makes me wonder about syphilis given what syphilis primary lesions can look like. ...Read more

All Juiced-Up Again?: Now THAT sounds like something I"D like to drink (when I want to get out of work, that is...).You know, often we attribute the most notable things as a proximate cause to our ills. Short of a Mac Truck hitting you, maybe also consider other things you've eaten or been exposed to. Of course if you just started with that Aloe,stop it and see what happens. And if you are getting worse get to a doctor ...Read more

How to I know if it's acid reflux or low stomach acid when I sometimes get cold sore feeling from throat to rectum after passing stool or standing ?

How to I know if it's acid reflux or low stomach acid when I sometimes get cold sore feeling from throat to rectum after passing stool or standing ?

Not sure it's either: cannot say in your particular case, but generally, reflux is too much acid and taking an ANT-acid changes symptoms. Won't have any effect on rectal symptms associated with passing stool. This is a characteristic symptom of ibs. http://www.nerdpocalypse.net/irritable%20bowel.html ...Read more

Sore throat: These are signs of a viral illness, which typically last 7 to 10 days. When someone feels this nauseated, they should focus on drinking at least eight 8-ounce glasses of water a day first. Drink before you eat, and avoid high-fat or acidic foods to help decrease discomfort. If vomiting makes it impossible to keep down food or fluids, an immediate recheck is needed. ...Read more

I have been getting blistery sores on my lower back, whenever i eat tomatoes, or citris foods. Is this herpes or cold sores?

I have been getting blistery sores on my lower back, whenever i eat tomatoes, or citris foods. Is this herpes or cold sores?

Could be herpes: I have heard of citrus type foods triggering a herpes outbreak. You can also get skin irritation from citric acid if it touches your skin and then you are out in the sun. However, it could all just be a coincidence and your rash could be many other things. There is medication for it if it is herpes, so may worth it to get checked. You can always take a pic of it and show it to your doc later. ...Read more

Do cold sores heal faster if popped? Do doctors advise popping them or leaving them alone? Just want to know if cold sores should be left alone to heal, or pop them and remove the liquid?

Leave alone. : There is one theory that if you injure a chronic sore it will become an acute lesion and heal faster. I think it just makes it irritated and painful popping the bubble(vesicles) leaks the contagious fluid which could infect your eye, open breaks in skin, or others. A better solution is to talk to dentist who can prescribe med (valtrex) which taken at first sign will lead to quick healing. ...Read more
