Do Cold Sores Have Whiteheads
Do most cold sores have blister and tingle feel? Want to know if pimple or cold sore. Pimple like whitehead popped on lip. No tingle, blister.
Can cold sores appear white in colour? Like a whitehead? No tingle, no blister. Feels like canker sore or bitten lip. Not sure how to tell...
White is Good: When a canker sore or "aphthous ulcer" is in the process of healing it turns a whitish color. You are on the mend. Leave it alone, don't pop it! Maybe some salt water or baking soda gargles...If you want to feel better but actually, nothing is shown to significantly speed up healing once it gets to this stage. You're in the home stretch....1-2 weeks more and you'll be able to suck lemons again. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What's the difference to a pimple and herpes on your genitals? I have a whitehead down there but I also have a cold sore, do I have genital herpes?
A red bump appeared on the corner of my lip. The next day, the whitehead appeared, when popped the pus came out. Is this a cold sore or pimple?
Pimple most likely: From the description this sounds more like a pimple as it built up over time and came to a whitehead before it drained. Cold sores are usually more flat and shallow, moist looking and sting quite a bit. Either way, touch it up with a little Neosporin and avoid sharing kisses with anyone until it heals. See your MD to confirm the diagnosis. Read more

Bump on border of upper lip. Have acne, oily skin, never cold sore b4.didnt notice tingling b4 it appeared. Popped it cuz there was a whitehead. Is pimple?
Maybe: There are oil glands on the edges of the lips. That means one can get plugged oil glands and occasionally a pimple there. Plugged oil glands may come 1-3 at a time. After the stuff comes out, it should heal up fine. Herpes cold sores are often a cluster of 3-10 tiny bumps, and don't contain pus or oil. Cold sores break easily, can ooze a bit, as if the surface got scraped away, and they crust up. Read more

Gave oral sex to my bf, I had what I thought was a pimple, now I think it's a cold sore. I've never had one so idk if it is one, will he get sores now?
One thing to know: Whether or not and how people can get infected with the HSV-1 or HSV-2 is extremely open to speculation. A woman needs to know that the one time she does not want to have a genital herpes outbreak is when she gives birth. If a woman suspects she could have genital herpes, even though she never had an outbreak, ask the provider at the time of delivery to do a thorough exam. She may need a c/section Read more
Unlikely: First of all, shingles is usually on the torso, not the face. It's also localized to a specific strip of skin (dermatome). Shingles involve a lot of pain as well, so unless your really hurting, it's not shingles. The virus that causes cold sores and shingles are similar, but they aren't exactly the same. Hope that helps!
