Shaving can cause in grown hairs which look like pimples and if you are feeling itching on your lips in a specific area try applying abreva (cold sore medicine) or see a physician if it's bothering you this much.
Its not and itching feeling it's more like my mind playin tricks on me I think. Do my symptoms sound like HSV-1? Also forgot to state the bumps were instantly hard when they formed and were close together right over my hair under my lip but not on my lip.
statistically at least you or your wife has hsv1 orally. odds are neither of you have ever been tested for it before to know your status. It's incredibly common and not many of us make it to the old folks home without it.
at this point you have 2 options since things are healed now. either get a type specific herpes igg blood test to see what your overall herpes status is or wait and should these return , be seen promptly for a proper work up. If you are going to bother to pursue the herpes angle, your wife should also have a type specific herpes igg blood test done so that you both know who has what. odds are she wasn't tested for herpes when pregnant.
Thanks for your response Grace but by my description what I really am trying to ask is if I should worry or even consider the Herpes route? Also with first occurrences isn't that usually the worst? I only ask because the symptoms of herpes really didn't pertain to my situation but when you get something you never experienced before your mind tends to wander. Also by what I have said is my son or wife at any real risk of anything besides a crazy daddy?
Another thing is the area where the problem occurred which is now like pink new skin. I see a tiny whitehead has popped up on it. This is usually an area which is very oily for me any remarks?
To me it sounds like in grown hairs or just plain old pimples if it's greasy or oily in that region. Pimples can form in clusters and can sometimes be harder than normal.
yes it could be herpes or any number of things. At this point you've poked, prodded, lotioned and potioned so much it's gonna make it hard to know what it really was.
