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.

Not canker sores: You need to see your ob/gyn or a dermatologist for these lesion. Two prevalent diseases that give genital sores are herpes (a virus) and lichen planis (auto-immune possibly). Both can be painful and can have oral and skin related lesions. Some cases can become serious from scarring. Talk to your md.

If I have a canker sore/cold sore, why did my hsv1 test come back negative? I had a canker sore that resulted in giving my girlfriend genital herpes when I gave her oral sex....She's positive for hsv1, but I'm not. Is that normal? Did we take different te

Make: Make sure you both are tested for hsv type 1 and 2. It was previously thought that type 1 was only localzed to the mouth and type 2 to the genitals, but that is not correct. Also consider the fact that your gilrfriend already carried the virus and you did not give it to her by giving her oral sex. Take care.

So I didn't think my boyfriend had a canker sore in his lip but that day after he gave me oral sex I got red blisters that popped and they hurt like crazy and it burns to pee.... I think I have genital herpes and I don't want my parents to find out I'm so

May be herpes.: You may have genital herpes. Although, it's unlikely that it would have appeared so soon (the day after) exposure (oral sex) since they is a period of time before symptoms manifest (incubation period). The average time is 4 days but may range from 2 to 12 days. You should see you doctor for an evaluation and definitely during any period when there is genital ulcers or blisters for a diagnosis.

Recently had sex with girl. Sore showed up on tip of tongue that I thought was a canker sore. There are white sores on throat and tonsils. Tonsils and throat are swollen. Nothing on genitalia though. Is this more likely straight herpes or tonsillitis?

Recently had sex with girl. Sore showed up on tip of tongue that I thought was a canker sore. There are white sores on throat and tonsils. Tonsils and throat are swollen. Nothing on genitalia though. Is this more likely straight herpes or tonsillitis?

Maybe strep, flu, etc.: Tongue and throat symptoms can be from viruses, strep throat, allergies, etc... It can be difficult to tell what the cause is. If symptoms only last 1-2 days, it was likely allergies, irritation, or a mild cold. Doctors have rapid 5-minute tests for strep, so a primary care doctor can diagnose strep and start antibiotics. Other possible viral infections are mono and oral herpes. Doctor can check.
