got a herpes break out under my bottom lip

okay so around february or march I got a herpes break out under my bottom lip. Well im not sure if it was herpes, but im guessing it was. It was like a few tiny white bubbles( is that herpes?) i heard herpes sticks with a person forever, is this true? & how often does a person get outbreaks? and when they do get outbreaks, are they going to break out in the same place everytime ? thanks a lot! i already use zivorex

Get a serology test done to confirm/rule out possibilities of herpes rather than keeping the thought in your mind of whether or not it was due to herpes. In case it was, then take treatment.

Hi, today is sunday and yesterday morning i woke up during the night with an itch in my scrotum and tip of my penis. I went to my GP first thing in the morning and did a urine test and took medication for chlamydia. I have had chamydia before and it was not this painful. I went home and tried to sleep and the pain got worse so i went to the hospital. There the doctors prescribed me medication for herpes and told me to watch for any blisters to form. I went back to my GP and he did a swab test on my penis, telling me he doubts its herpes. Today the itchiness has gotten better, but has also spread to my anus. Here are the factors. Last month I went to thailand and had unprotected oral sex (fellatio) with a girl. This was less than a month ago. As soon as i got back I got tested for everything besides herpes with everything coming back negative. Since then I have only had sex once and it was protected. In the days coming up to my itchiness, I didnt shower for two days. I go to the gym so im thinking it might be some kind of jock itch type infection. I cant see any rash, just a mild red coloring around my foreskin. There is no discharge, just a severe, painful burning sensation around the tip (opening) of my penis, the lip around the head of my penis (under my foreskin), the bottom of my scrotum and my anus opening. Today I bought antifungal cream and it gave me temporary relief but now when i reapply it stings. any help would be appreciated Nick

hi. I have recently went and got checked for a rash on my penis. When I got there the doc didnt hesitate too say it was herpes, but then the next day a painless, itchless blister shows up on my bottom lip also. kind of under my top lip. And not knowing what it was, we still kissed. So... what is it? its not a cold sore or canker

I had a bump in the inner side of my vagina lip. It got very hard a big. It did finally pop and had puss. Never looked like a blister though. Now the inner of my vagina lips seem redder. I also have a little spot at the very bottom of vagina lips that is bleeding a little. Is this herpes?

I have had the zostrex shot for shingles, however, I have an inner itching all around my waist but no rash at all. Could I have gotten the Shingles despite the fact that I was inoculated. The itching has been going on for quite a while but I cannot see anything. Anti itch cream helps a bit.

I have a rash in random places on my body. Around my breast and sporadically on my torso. A few spots on my back and now I noticed between my butt cheeks? I ve had shingles in the past so this DOES NOT look like that. I took my valtrex just in case out of concern. Any thoughts on this rash? I have a diaper rash cream and I m getting ready to take a bleach bath. I don t have a primary care right now, but could see my OB if you think I need a prescription cream.
