Does herpetic wit low hurt on hands without popping the blisters? Or does it burn only when you pop the blister? Need to know
It will hurt: It will hurt no matter what you do. I recommend BHT (butylated hydroxytoluene)--a food preservative anti-oxidant in a dose of 2, 000 mg per day (split the dose throughout the day). Download a free e-book, "Wipe out Herpes with BHT." Also, apply DMSO topically, available from a health food store or animal supply (or on line). DMSO will dry up topical lesions rapidly, painlessly. ...Read more
You can, but don't.: Generally these will open and create a small ulcerated area on the skin by themselves. If you squeeze or open them in an unsterile fashion they have a chance of becoming secondarily infected, and although I hate driving business away, you don't need added problems. ...Read more
Herpes: If you discover that you have a fever blister, do not pop it. It is highly contagious and is easily spread through touch, especially kissing. Do not share utensils, glasses, food. Throw away your toothbrush, wash sheets and clothes and frequently wash your hands. Fever blisters can be spread to other parts of the body as well, so try to avoid contact until the blister is gone. ...Read more
Currently having an oral herpes and taking valtrex my blister seems do not pop it been 5weeks already. The doc check visually only. What should I do? I want to do a test and change doc because I am not convince in his verdict. Any suggestion
Probably not herpes: No herpes outbreak can last 5 weeks; even without Valtrex or other treatments, it should have healed within 2 weeks. It may have started as herpes, but now something else, such as a bacterial superinfection (e.g. with strep or staph). Your idea of getting a second opinion from another doctor is a good one. Good luck! ...Read more

How to diff hsv 1 and 2? Diagnose oral hsv is there a chance I will exp genital herpes? And does the blister pop itself my blister doesn't seem to pop. Blister is already a month old
Some thoughts...: A lab test (such as a blood test) is needed if one wants to differentiate Herpes simplex 1 from 2. A person can catch HSV 1, or 2, or both, because having one of them does not protect him from the other. The location of the lesions does not confirm the Herpes type, because type 1 can sometimes be genital, and type 2 can sometimes be oral. Herpes blisters break and heal up, or it may not be herpes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Oral herpes: Oral herpes outbreaks typically go red bump to blister (clear fluid) to pimple to open sore to crust/scab over 7-14 days. Recurrent outbreaks usually are in more or less the same spot every time. Most doctors are good at recognizing oral herpes, so you probably can rely on your doc's opinion. But if uncertain, testing can be done to know for sure -- for virus in the lesion, or blood test for HSV1. ...Read more
