Hi, what your describing does not appear as herpes outbreaks at all with so many happening every month. Herpes inside the mouth is more common with a primary new infection not for long term herpes as would be on the lips. Have a blood test to confirm if you have hsv oral and a swab of a new sore. Its the only way to confirm. But dont be overly concerned these are herpes outbreaks.
Thanks for your message. I seem to be going to slightly longer periods where I wont get them, but still. It seems I have them more often then not. I've attached some pics of a previous blister. I've never, at least that I can remember, have gotten a cold sore on my lips. The blisters I get have always been under my tongue, or in my inner lower lip. The ENT specialist was adament that she didn't know why the other doctors jumped to the conclusion that these blisters were in fact herpes. I am HSV 1 positive. I had an STD test done long ago and it included testing for HSV 1 and 2. The ENT said since most people are HSV 1 positive, it was far more likely that these blisters were just mucoceles. Anyway, given the pictures, including the ones in the link I've included in this message, does this look like herpes? I can't find pics online of herpes looking quite like this. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated. I've had this hanging over my head for about 2 years. I'm constantly worried about it, especially considering how often I get them. Also, if your glands are swollen, the ones by your neck, is that a sign of it being herpes? Sometimes my glands there feel harder than other times. Usually when I have these things, but not always. I'm not in a position where I can get a swab done now sadly as I'm in Japan and have no idea where to do this, which sucks.
