I have been concerned for MANY years that I have HSV1. I have canker sores pretty often, as of right now I have 2 on the inside of my bottom lip. I was actually diagnosed with it like 8yrs ago- but I don't think the Dr. knew what he was talking about. I went to ER because my head felt like it was going to explode (acute sinuitis) and he said that I had a bunch of HSV blisters on the back of my throat (I believe it was irritation from post nasal drip) it never became anything...But I get canker soars and when I search images I can see a very distinct difference although there will be a pic or two of what looks like a canker sore in the herpes section...I am Confused.. is it Herpes or just canker sores?? Thanks for your help.
