I recently drove through the hottest parts of california (for quite a few days). I noticed a blister forming on my right inner lip (just a few days out). It pretty-much stayed the same in look for some time...very much like a blister you would get on your foot/hand if you over rubbed it against something. It doesn't hurt unless I rub it (with a kleanex or tissue), and it's progressively getting smaller. There's no real color to it (sort of looks like my lip has been bitten), but there's small white dots next to it...not sure if they were there before. Although reading through the forum, it seems those dots are normal.
Six days later: My doctor says he thinks it's not herpes, and upon searching the internet I'm finding it hard to figure out if it's herpes or it's just sun blisters. My lips have always been very prone to dry out and I'm not quite sure what it is. A blood/urine test will tell me soon.
--Given my doctor says nothing on my lips or crotch looks like herpes (even though my paranoid mind looks at everything with suspicion),... do you think my chances of having it are much smaller? Or does herpes usually start-off looking like blisters one would get on their feet or hand from over-rubbing the skin?
I'm hopeful that it's nothing...given my doctors first assessment, but I don't want to be highly dissapointed. Your thoughts and experiences examining things like this....?
