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

Sir I have been diagnosed with genetial herpes three years back. I had gone under suppressive therapy of zovirax 400 mg twice a day for six months at that time. I have had some out breaks after that which was treated by zovirax 400 mg twice or thrice a day till the eruptions healed. In march Last year I got warts on my genetial for which I was prescribed podowart by my doctor. I had a severe out break of herpes in last qtr of 14. And am having continuous out breaks since then almost every 15 to 20 days. I have started taking homeopathic medicine from a bhms dr in my town in sep 14. The severity of herpes has reduced but my warts have are not cured and the outbreaks have also not reduced. At present I am taking baksons wart aid two tabs daily twice, baksons formula D two tabs twice daily, nat mur6x and nat sul6x six tabs thrice daily and (mystic) herpes drop M61 thrice daily since sep 14. I am fed up of taking so many medicine. Please help

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

Whenevere the dose is decreased, after six months 3x daily, etc. They reoccurr. I ve had them on my legs, thighs, arms, armpit, and butt cheek. I did have chicken pox and measles at the same time as a child. Why am I getting shingles so often and what can I do to prevent them?
