Herpes has no hair: Herpes bumps contain multiple clear or reddened vesicles and are very painful when they first appear. In other words, herpes lesions are "bald". If you really want to know what it is , call a MD for an exam. ...Read more

Herpes or other ?: A herpes infection of the labia is painful, and appears as a single or cluster of shallow ulcers which are sensitive to touch (clothing or liquids). Get this tested by your health care professional, and if it is herpes, get the subtype identified , as some may require additional testing as they are more serious over time. ...Read more

Test failure: The tests for viral presence and accurate identification (hsv-1 and hsv-2) are not 100% accurate. They tend to look for antibodies for the particular virus, which may not have yet been detectable when the test was performed. A re-test with one of the newer screening tests is advisable. ...Read more

Do herpes 1 spreads the whole face or just the mouth.

HSV1: Hi, HSV1 (Herpes 1) can travel along the sensory nerve of trigeminal nerve as the virus stays dormant in sensory Trigeminal ganglia, therefore it could lead to recurrences in the face and the oral, labial, and ocular mucosa. Although it usually reoccurs in the same spot as the primary infection has happened. ...Read more

I have this blister like thing on my lips is it herpes. And can it be passed to private parts?

Not all blisters are: Various types of blisters. In case it is herpes you cannot spread it to another part of your body. You can spread it to another person only if that person does not already have it. If it is herpes you are contagious any time but most contagious when you have a sore. There are prescription pills which reduce symptoms and reduce contagion. I have a book on my table: what is it? ...Read more

Genital Herpes: In general, genital herpes can cause ulcers and vesicles and pain but does not usually cause large masses that drain pus. This would be more consistent with an infected lymph node or another bacterial infection (like staph) or an STD. Would have it checked by your gynecologist ...Read more

Painful 1-side rash: Shingles is caused by varicella zoster virus, a member of the herpes virus family. Herpes simplex viruses are also members of the same family but different viruses from herpes simplex. You can have one & not the other. Having antibodies to herpes simplex doesn't prevent you from having shingles. Shingles is a reactivation of chickenpox that a person had previously. There are blood tests for all 3. ...Read more
