The typical herpes outbreak is what happens after your initial response which can be a more seriously uncomfortable event. Kissing is definitely a mode of transmission however so while it's possible to transmit the virus, a sore tongue shortly after exposure probably not. ...Read more

I have this really big red bump on the back of my tongue by my throat. The big one is the only one that really hurts there's others but they don't hurt?

You might be biting your tongue with the sharp edge of a tooth, or the lesion may need to be further investigated. Better to have it looked at. ...Read more

Could zpak or hard cough cause red bump in roof of mouth and pain in tongue? My tongue feels like a muscle pulled since last night and the bump sore.

Zpack no, cough yes: The red bump on the roof of the mouth and pain in tongue is more due to the hard cough than the zpack. If this continues I'd go back to the dentist to have it evaluated. No worries.
