Pain on the lip is most likely related to gum pain
I have seen the attached photographs and gone through your complaints.
The pictures are fine and there are no signs of herpes.
There is no need of any precautionary medicines and creams.
This pain and burning seems to be related to the gum pain you are having.
I would recommend you to take anti inflammatory medicines like tablet ibuprofen.
It will help in relieving your symptoms.
Also continue with hydrocortisone cream and sebamed lip balm.
I will attach few more pics that I took just few seconds before. There is a small rash like in the skin below the lips just below. It kind of hurts when touched and also sometimes itchs. Now i have few questions
1) it’s been 10 days since that dental cleaning should I still be scared of herpes what do you think in this case?
2) my lips both the corners feels dry inspire of me applying lip balm three to four times s day any problem in that?
3)should I keep a watch on the vermillion border I mean look out ? Please suggest and help me
Keep it under observation for another 2-3 days
There is slight redness below the lower lip but its not a herpetic rash.
I don't think you need to be scared of herpes.
The incubation period of herpes infection is 3-12 days.Already 10 days have passed.
You can keep it under observation for another 2-3 days.
You have a dry and sensitive skin.
I would recommend you to apply lip balm every 2-3 hours during the day time.
You can keep a watch on the vermillion border for another 2-3 days.
Otherwise I don't think you will contract herpes infection from a dental instruments.
Do you doubt something .... is that the reason you told me to keep watch. I did touch the rash couple of times and I do not remember whether I then touched face or my dress? Is it ok then. Also earlier you mentioned that incubation period is 5 days now 3-12 days . So is it exactly till 12 th day I should keep a watch I am asking you this because today is 11th day . Please could you clarify me these it’s so terrifying and scared
I have taken few pics of the left side vermillion border ( I feel th border is slightly red ) although now I don’t feel any irritation as such. Actually I just got up from the sleep ( I slept for few hours ) is it normal . I am freaking out please help me
