Is it possible to have Shingles on my lower lip? I have never ever had a cold sore or fever blisters but woke to have two circular VERY painful ulcers (8-10) on each side of my lower lip. My lip is also red and 2-3 times the regular size. I have lost 5 lbs (in 4 days) as I cannot eat correctly and am drinking weak soups and teas. I had the Shingles once before on my abdomen and quite well remember the burning pain that comes with them. They look similar too.
I have had a rare gray spot on m gums in the past usually related to dental work. This lip problem is nothing like the gum ulcer or boil I have experienced. I have had a very low grade fever and the chills and feel quite unwell. I have a dr appointment next week and cannot get in any sooner. Thanks!
