Dr. John J. Thaler answered:

If I have oral herpes, is it possible to just have sores in my mouth and not get cold sores on the outside of my mouth, like my lips?

Yes

This can be the case. However, you can develop extraoral herpes at any time. Be very careful when you have active lesions, because you can easily get them in your eyes. They are very contagious, so be especially careful about kissing infants, and of course anyone else during this time. You can ask your dentist about a prescription medication for them. Good luck.

Not always

Oral herpes is one of many causes of oral ulcers. For some ulcers, we cannot find a cause. It is impossible to diagnose the cause of the ulcers without a good clinical examination.

Can you catch oral herpes by kiss even after washing mouth?

Herpes

Hsv
Yes. Of course. But here are important facts. 75 % of Americans are infected with Herpes Type one, the virus most often responsible for oral herpes. Most got infected as children from family members. If you have not had a blood test for herpes you must have one before you can learn about prevention. People infected with herpes shed the virus at unpredictable and untestable rates.

Red dot inside mouth that is down by lower jaw, is this oral herpes?

Testing

Open-uri20140323-29507-lxdokz
A herpes viral culture can determine if a rash is due to the herpes virus. A doctor can perform this if there is an active lesion. If there is no active lesion, a blood test can be performed to determine if there are antibodies against any recent or past herpes infection.

Dr. Martin Raff answered:

Test came back negitive :/ is oral herpes always detectable in your mouth?

No

Nothing is always, and I always say never say never. Usually oral lesions which look herpetic, are due to Herpes. Tests can suggest that Herpes is present (special stains and viral cultures), but negative findings do not exclude the diagnosis.
