More then likey it could be just normal things. Your provider didn't feel it was herpes.
Hi - I hope so...
I guess I still have the question, though, if you'd be so kind - how likely is it to get a primary oral HSV OB on the tongue but NOT on the lips or anywhere else?
Honestly, I never even thought it was a possibility until I mistakenly started searching the web today.
And to be honest, my GP took such a quick look, almost like a drive-by... it's hard to know if I might be better off going to get a second opinion.
Usually you don't get an outbreak on the tongue.
You can see your dentist. We do get bumps on our tongue.
Well, I went to our local health clinic this morning and saw a lovely doctor who drew blood and did a culture of my tongue.
She also didn't think it was anything to worry about, but wanted me to be sure.
However, she did say she would do both and IGG test and an IGM test, which I hear (from these boards) is utterly useless and may give a false positive?
Should I cancel the IGM test, or at least see what happens?
What are the chances of false positive?
no reason for the igm testing to be done since if it comes back +, it really doesn't tell you anything. 1 out of every 3 igm results are falsely positive.
it's good that you had a culture done, much more valuable than the blood tests.
Thanks, Grace - I guess it's already been put in, but I won't panic if the test comes back positive.
So strange: yesterday, tiny bunch of white painful bumps near the edge of my tongue... one bigger than the rest, with a new one appearing to be starting up at tip of tongue.
Now, today, the other ones have all but disappeared and don't hurt, and the newest one is damned big (relatively) and hurts quite a bit. Totally white with a red center, no raised red rim. Absolutely wasn't remotely this big this morning.
Can I just ask one more question please?
With absolutely NO other symptoms, and no cold sores anywhere on my lips or inside of my mouth, is it likely this could be a primary HSV outbreak?
What is the likelihood of kissing for several hours and ONLY getting HSV on the tongue and nowhere else?
I know HSV on the tongue is possible... but I'm wondering if that usually happens in CONJUNCTION with 'normal' cold sores, or if tongue HSV tends to happen on its own in a primary OB.
you can get oral herpes ob's on the tongue with the initial infection, recurrences tend not to occur there.
Hello, if you have HSV on the tongue does this mean you will get these outbreaks throughtout your life as you would be a cold sore on the lip?
I have white bumps on the tip of my tongue. I went to the clinic and she said it was a viral infection and prescribed me acyclovir. Does this mean i have herpes?
Bro my g friend and I both get these called Lie Bumps on our tongues after kissing. while annoying, nothing serious
