this doesn't sound like oral herpes. have you seen your provider for testing for strep throat?
have you ever been tested for herpes to know your own status?
Thanks Grace! No I haven't been tested yet but dont I have to wait 3 months now?? TOday my sore throat has greatly improved. Still have a few swollen lymph nodes. If it were orall herpes, would the spots just wipe away that easily? Also, is a sore throat associated with herpes caused by the ulcers? Because there are no ulcers at all. Would the ulcers present with the sore throat. Thank you so much for your response. Its very comforting.
oh and would the sore throat improve this fast???
even if you can't recall ever having had obvious cold sores, you could still have hsv1 which is why I asked about testing.
really doesn't sound like oral herpes going on.
So today (day 9 after exposure) i had a small white head looking pimple on my lip. I popped it and it is painless. Could this be a herpes sore? its still a little red but looks like its improving.
also I am having no other symptoms (swollen glands are away, no sore throat anymore or fever)
see your provider for a proper exam if you are concerned.
