It has been two months now. I am taking acyclovir 800 mg * 5 times a day, but it also could not stop the out break. ...

  • Is this a cold sore or just a pimple?

    I’m 16 and a virgin. I have not sexually made contact with anyone. I felt this on my lip the other day and stupidly, assuming it was just a pimple, picked it. I, later, saw it in the mirror and began to worry due to its location. Is it a cold sore? It doesn’t throb or hurt constantly, but when I open...

  • Is this oral herpes? Or a cut lip?

    I am really worried that I have contracted herpes, but I am not sure if I am overthinking or not. I have not experience any symptoms apart from a mark on my lip, it has not been painful but I have read on here that sometimes the first breakout can be trivial but in other places I have read the first...

  • HSV 1 and 2 test

    I’ve recently took a test and i got the results of HSV 1 and 2 with the igG index of HSV 1 which was 0.2 and HSV2 which was 0.1. Does this mean that i am infected with the virus already? But in the results it says negative (<0.8). What does the 0.2 and 0.1 mean
