Had oral sex with my prtner last Wed, the next day (Thur) I developed a herpes sore roof of the mouth. Could I have expose my partner to hsx type 1&2?

Herpes vs canker: A sore inside the mouth usually isn't herpes. Oral herpes (cold sores) almost always are outside the mouth, usually on or near the lips. A sore inside the mouth is rarely herpes; more likely a canker sore, which is a different thing entirely. So maybe you didn't expose your partner at all. If you do have oral herpes, almost certainly it's HSV1; it is unlikely you could give him HSV2. ...Read more

Ulcers on roof of mouth? Antiviral for 6 months no relief! If not herpes what could it be?

Biopsy: I definitely agree that it needs to be re-evaluated. My rule of thumb is that an ulcer that does not resolve in 2weeks needs to be biopsied. There are several types of cancer that can show up on the roof of the mouth, so this needs to be addressed asap. I see that you are relatively close to my office mid you like, we can get you in before the weekend for the procedure. ...Read more

I'm having anal wart outbreak, then a fever and running nose like flu. I have 1 painless ulcer at roof of mouth. Is it herpes? I also had hot chilli.

Be sure of diagnosis: Get examined please. Canker sores are common aphthous ulcers of mouth that occur situationally, often in response to stressors, are bacterial or viral, can be treated topically with many otc products that reduce local discomfort &potentially speed healing. However, oral/dental problems & a number of systemic diseases cause canker sore-like lesions--Crohn's, Behcet's, STD (sexually transmitted). ...Read more

I got a hard bump on the roof of my mouth and then it was soft and slightly painfull pus came out of it and it healed now its back same place. Herpes?

Mouth pustule: The fact that your roof of mouth hard bump softened and drained pus argues strongly for a pustule (bacterial infection) rather than an herpetic sore. But then again the fact that you now have the bump back again in the same area makes recurrent herpetic sores a possibility. You should see your internist so that the sore can be visualized and treated. ...Read more
