i forgot to mention i used condom during sex
is what i have really herpes on tongue?
Hi, the only way youll know is by testing. The best test is a swab and culture but they need to be swab within 48 hours after it appears. This will tell you if its oral and what type if in fact you have it. Other than that get a blood test 3 months post exposure
The white patches could have been thrush. Usual herpes forms on the lips but could appear anywhere in the mouth. Your outbreaks to fit the profile of a new infection with the fever.
@life360 thanks for your quick reply sir.
its been a year now since the possible exposure. and i have what seems to be an outbreak twice with 6 months intervals. i guess ill have to wait for the next outbreak to appear or can i have test even without an ulcers?
i really dont see any blister during those ulcers appear. from what i read blisters comes first... thats why im confuse
and the white patches i mention is only at my throat. my lips and tongue dont have those during that time..
you can have a blood test but it wont let you know where you have it so if your concerned about your mouth then it needs a swab culture.
