Is this a sign of HSV1

Posted , 2 users are following.

I had unprotected oral with someone in May and have been experiencing a lot of differences in my facial area.

I have white spots on my upper lip, likened to fordyce, where it meets the lower one, small pin sized spots in cheeks and a tingling around my nose, it also feels really oily at times and the skin on my face is becoming quite dry. The tip of my tongue is also sore at times.

I have had all STI tests and HSV1 showed up positive, now I don't know if this was always the case but its showed up.

I have had no eruptions or outbreaks and no real pain anywhere just what I have mentioned above.

I realise the test showed positive but its been over 15 weeks since possible exposure and I'm yet to see a lesion or sore.

The mentioned symptoms have been consistent for at least 10 weeks.

Can someone relate to this or help me out somehow.

      Its really causing me worries. I've spoke to GP about it and Sexual Health specialist and they dismiss it being herpes or HPV, if it was Herpes on my lip would I know about it or can it stay in a mild state just showing dots on lips?

      Also, would it be there for this long without progressing?

      I'm just confused by it all to be honest.
