Herpes: Genital herpes is a chronic sexually transmitted infection caused by the herpes simplex virus (hsv). Historically, hsv-2 accounted for a majority of genital infections; however, hsv-1, which usually infects the orolabial area, now accounts for up to 50% of first-episode cases. These are often multiple, resulting in shallow, painful ulcers that may merge. The symptoms last for approximately 7-14 d. ...Read more
Oral herpes: Could be spread by sharing a drink. ...Read more
Herpes simplex: This would be rather unusual. Coxsackie virus will produce a condition known as herpangina which involves the fauces and pharynx and looks very much like the blisters of herpes simplex. Imagine also that you could get herpetic lesions if you performed deep oral penetration of the penis of a man infected with this virus, but not very common. ...Read more
Throat Herpes: Also known as herpes esophagitis, herpes of the throat or esophagus is extremely rare, especially in otherwise healthy individuals. It is most commonly found in people with compromised immune systems, such as recipients of organ transplants, aids and cancer patients, and those being treated with radiation, steroids or chemotherapy. Treatment can be with oral valtrex (valacyclovir). ...Read more
My son is four and he drank after his sister. She just found out from the dentist she has herpes in her throat. Can my four old son get throat herpes?
Yes: Oral herpes is usually type i, and can be accompanied by high fever, swollen glands, red gums and canker sores within the mouth, especially the first time you get it. There is an antiviral medicine that might help if given early. There are also other viruses that look like herpes in the throat, and the dentist may not be able to tell them apart by sight; most get better on their own. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Multiple SMALL sores in back of throat, semi clustered but not really. Not big/ not infected looking. Strep throat or gonorhoea? Or herpes?Soundslike?
Hard to tell...: I have difficulty picturing what you mean by "multiple small sores". If painful, it could be herpes. With or without pain, it doesn't sound like either strep throat or gonorrhea. If at risk for STDs and no pain, then the secondary stage of syphilis (typically 2-6 months after being infected) might be possible. Don't take chances: play it safe and see a doctor, or public STD clinic if at risk. ...Read more
Probably not herpes: Assuming you have had oral herpes (cold sores, fever blisters), then no worries about herpes for your sore throat and pain on swallowing. A new oral herpes infection could cause these symptoms, but not longstanding infection. Probably you just have garden variety viral pharyngitis. But see a doctor if the symptoms are severe, if you also have fever, or if it doesn't clear up in a few days. ...Read more
Herpes virus: There are 2 strains of herpes virus (hsv 1 and 2). Hsv1 usually gives cold sores, hsv2 usaually the genital infection. While each virus prefers one place over the other, it is entirely possible to get them in the opposite place. Once infected, you have herpes forever, though there are medications that can suppress and shorten an outbreak. ...Read more
Since 3 weeks I have some sort of red bubbles on my soft palate (throat). No symptoms. Can this be caused from the herpes i got sometimes?
Too long: Three weeks is usually longer than herpes sticks around unless you are immunocompromised. The pink bubbles can be tiny salivary glands that are plugged, petechiae(red dots) which are evident after trauma, screaming or smoking or may be how your soft tissue presents. If you get ulcers there it is worth getting checked. Or if they start to hurt please visit a pro! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I was wondering how does strep differ from herpes in the throat. people and my coworkers at work have been sick and i work with money all day.
38 yr old female married 19 yrs throat red w/white spot right side soft palette area. Dr said strep or herpes, never had herpes in my life why say it?
Unlikely: I think you are asking about oral sex. When herpes is transmitted in this fashion it usually produces a classic rash with blister-like lesions which break down and form small very painful shallow ulcers. This may be accompanied by fever, malaise, etc., but it sounds like you may have a cold. Depending on the type of oral sex HIV can reach the tonsils if ejaculate hits the throat. ...Read more
For a while my back of throat has red veins and i see orange bumps in back of my throat also? I have herpes? Is this something else?
Bumps in throat: Healthy tonsils look like two pink to orange bumps on either side of the back of the throat. Inflamed tonsils are red and may have pustules, particularly in viral and strep infections. Herpes usually has erosions or shallow ulcers and is usually painful. If your throat is sore or swollen, or there are new growths, please see a doctor to a proper evaluation. ...Read more
