I have a ulcers in my lower lip of my mouth, does that means I have herpes?

Not necessarily: If the ulcers are on the "in" side of your lip and not on the out side of the lip, then you may have a common canker sore or aphthous ulcer. These can happen if you accidentally bite your lip and some viruses can cause this also. If you want to rule out herpes, see your doctor to test for it. Read more

Herpes is forever: Whether it is type I-Oral herpes, or type 2-genital herpes. These can be spread to their alternate locations by cunnilingous. You do NOT have to have open sores to spread. It helps to take daily antivirals if you are very sexually active, they have shown to reduce risk. Wear a condom when she "goes down" or a dental dam. Talk to doc about meds to avoid catching it. It's a present that lasts forever Read more

If: If you have herpes outbreaks on your lips and you are considering surgery or any type of minimally invasive procedure near or on your lips (ex. Fillers, peels, laser) it is wise to inform your doctor several days before the procedure.
