Can tiny paper cut like thing on the side of the lips be herpes?

Can tiny paper cut like thing on the side of the lips be herpes?

Not likely: More likely it would be perleche, which is also called angular cheilitis. It is not associated with a vitamin deficiency. To treat it you can buy Hydrocortisone cream 1% and Clotrimazole cream, mix a small amount of both on the fingers and apply to the rash three times a day for a week or so. If it is herpes then it will enlarge and become a group of blisters. ...Read more

My boyfriend has sores above his lips from the past two weeks healing now though, he got a cut while shaving and bumps were formed could it be herpes?

My boyfriend has sores above his lips from the past two weeks healing now though, he got a cut while shaving and bumps were formed could it be herpes?

Yes it could...: If he developed sores/blisters with burning type of pain, itchiness most likely this is herpes type 1, which is usually located in the oral(mouth) area. However, he was shaving so this could also be a folliculitis which is an infection or irritation of the base of the hair he shaved. If it is healing then there is nothing else for now he needs to do unless he gets them again. If so should see PCP. ...Read more

How can I show girlfriend the cut on my lip is not herpes?

How can I show girlfriend the cut on my lip is not herpes?

Culture: First of all, herpes is usually a cluster of small painful blisters, not a cut. But the only way to be really sure is to see a doctor and get a viral culture. A negative result doesn't guarantee you don't have it, but it's pretty convincing evidence. ...Read more

I noticed small cuts on my clitoris and front of vaginal lips. No bumps. 1 sexual partner and always protected sex. Cuts went away in a week. Herpes?

I noticed small cuts on my clitoris and front of vaginal lips. No bumps. 1 sexual partner and always protected sex. Cuts went away in a week. Herpes?

Cuts on genital area: Interesting question — Herpes if anything will cause tiny blisters and itching/pain but generally NOT something that looks like cuts. — unlikely they are from shaving (if you shave — unlikely you are shaving your clitoris). From clothing?? But to answer your question — unlikely that its from Herpes especially if you have protected sex with 1 partner. Hope that helps ...Read more

3 weeks after possible infection -blood test for herpes 7 weeks after upper lip inside cut and tender checked with doc who saiditsnotherpwhatelseisit?

3 weeks after possible infection -blood test for herpes 7 weeks after upper lip inside cut and tender checked with doc who saiditsnotherpwhatelseisit?

Doubt herpes: Confusing sequence. 3 weeks after exposure or onset of "cut"? What kind of exposure? Partner known to be infected? A "cut" inside lip doesn't suggest herpes, regardless of exposure. Neg test 7 wk after suspected exposure also is reassuring. It takes 12-16 weeks to be conclusive, but it is very unlikely you caught herpes. Most exposures don't result in transmission. Maybe a real cut? Canker sore? ...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 you get herpes 2 from sharing a cigarette while having a cut on your tongue with someone who has herpes 2 in mouth and genital areas?

I shaked hands with a person who has oral herpes right after he was touching his mouth. I had a cut in my finger but he didn't have any sores present.

A Vanquished Virus: Herpes simplex or "cold sore" which occur about the mouth are most infectious to others when there is an active lesion. Viral shedding also occurs on a much lower basis when there are no lesions present, but in a small area where the actual cold sore exists. Unless contact with that area for a sufficient duration occurred with your open wound directly, transmission is unlikely to have happened. ...Read more

Hi, I recently received oral sex about 3 days ago and I noticed a little bump on the labia. No itch or burn. I do use a razor so can it be a cut from that or more serious? Also, I kissed the person so if it was herpes wouldn't it be on my mouth too?

Need to examine: It is not feasible to know without examining you. Herpes type 1, that usually affects the mouth can infect genitals as well. It would be prudent to see a doctor and get tested.
For good health — Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Drink enough water daily so that your urine is mostly colorless.
Practice safe sex.
Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

If my bf has hsv2 but no active sores and I performed oral sex on him am i at risk for genital herpes or oral herpes? Again he has never had an outbreak and I have no cuts on my mouth. Used mouthwash.

Theoretically: Herpes virus is shed primarily when lesions are active, but unfortunately it is possible to transmit the virus even when there is no obvious lesions present and thus you are at risk for contacting oral and vaginal infections when exposed. ...Read more

I started with a cold sore and now have many more all over my mouth. I also have red bumps on the back of my tongue and throat. My gums are inflamed and bleed when I brush my teeth, and seem to be cut up. Is that a side effect of herpes too?

I started with a cold sore and now have many more all over my mouth. I also have red bumps on the back of my tongue and throat. My gums are inflamed and bleed when I brush my teeth, and seem to be cut up. Is that a side effect of herpes too?

Dr. can check throat: Throat pain can be from strep throat (antibiotics are needed), a cold or influenza (antibiotics usually not used), or from some other cause. One's FIRST case of oral herpes can cause mouth sores from front to back. Later recurrences should cause cold sores on or near the lips. To lessen mouth pain, one can see her doctor and ask about mouth rinses (some contain anesthetic, Maalox, Benadryl, etc.). ...Read more
