- A: How alike are HSV-1 and HSV-2? In this feature, we look at the latest scientific facts about the two types of herpes simplex virus, as well as social attitudes toward oral and genital herpes. When many people first tell someone they have genital herpes, they start by comparing the infection to oral herpes, or cold sores. How apt is the comparison? In spite of scientific facts, the social stigma and emotional attitudes surrounding genital herpes can make it hard to compare it objectively with an oral infection that most people casually accept. Following the unspoken assumptions of our society, many people still believe there is a “good” herpes virus-HSV- 1, the usual cause of cold sores-and a “bad” herpes virus-HSV-2, the usual cause of genital herpes.http://www.herpes.com/hsv1-2.htmlhttp://www.walgreens.com/library/contents.jsp?docid=000052&doctype=10
- Can you get cold sores IN your mouth?
- Q: I’ve gotten cold sores through-out my life rarely but right now I just ate a “rice bowl” (rice, sauce stuff, chicken, carrots, broccoli, green peas) and I immediately noticed bumps on the top of my mouth. I eat these “Rice bowls” all the time so I don’t think it’s from that, but I’ve never gotten a cold sore INSIDE my mouth, on the roof of my mouth. I use a small mirror and a flash light to look at it and it looks similar to cold sores but I’m not sure. There are about 8 or so small bumps in a cluster. :(No I didn’t pick at anything, it JUST appeared about 5 minutes before I asked this question. The last time I got a cold sore was over 5 months ago, then after eating right now it just POPPED up out of no where. Also I was totally sucking the sauce off a spoon, and the bottom of the spoon was against the top of my mouth where the sore is, could that have anything to do with it?!I’ve gotten canker sores… this is different. It’s…. a lot of little bumps in a big clump about the size of a dime, maybe smaller. Whatever it is I hope it’s like a canker sore/cold sore so it will go away in a few days and I don’t have to worry about it!
- A: Hi le.doucheYes, you can get cold sores in the mouth – only on the hard areas of the roof or on the gums. It is quite rare. I doubt that it is a cold sore. I don’t think it is a canker sore either. I can tell you this – I strongly believe it is in some way related to the sucking of the spoon. Also, I believe you have a slight allergy to something in the sauce – my guess “MSG” or wheat. Two things here. 1. Allergies sometimes show up only after repeated exposure. Also, your body changes every year. You many never be allergic to something and, suddenly you are. However, I think number 2 below is more related to your case. 2. The sucking of the spoon may have intensified an allergy that normally is so slight as to be unnoticeable – or it could have forced the allergen through the skin with the vacuum you created between the spoon and the roof of your mouth.Le.douche – I believe this is an isolated incident, mechanically created, rather than virus or bacteria. I would love to know how it turns out but I don’t believe I’m supposed to leave an email address here.Good luck. You should see this issue resolve itself by the fourth day, I expect.Denny Bodoh
