Arrow Cant figure out if she has coldsore or not. - November 24th 2010, 01:26 AM

Hey all so im wantin to date this girl and were close friends rite now. She has a bump on her bottom lip and it looks like a cold sore to me and she said it was and i know that is a type of Herpies then later she says she dosent have Herpies. I do not want coldsores/herpies and ive been taught if you kiss someone who has them there is a chance of you getting it. So i know some are thinking dont worry about it sorry but this is the way ive been raised to watch for these type of things. What else could it be its not acme and she didnt get hit in the mouth any ideas?

Cold sores don't mean she has HIV. I don't know where you got that information from, but you're very, very wrong.

I think you mean Herpes, not HIV.

It probably just a cold sore.

Exactly, herpes, not HIV. They're VERY different.

And why does it matter if she has a cold sore or not?

Because if you read i dont want cold sores and you can get them if you kiss someone who has herpes. So be nice to know if she had herpes or was something else...seriously not trying to argue about this

First off all, we can't tell you whether or not she has herpes or a cold sore caused by a viral infeciton.

Oral herpes is a product of HSV-1.
http://www.webmd.com/a-to-z-guides/oral-herpes
That talks about oral herpes.

Have you ever had a cold sore? If so, you could have an inactive strain of oral herpes.
Some people don't even know that they have it due to the lack of outbreaks.

Honestly, I wouldn't let a cold sore stop you from dating someone.
Just refrain from kissing her when she has a cold sore.

A coldsore isn't deadly, it's just a sore that will go away from treatment. It can be passed on from kissing, but then the next person would just need to treat it. A coldsore is part of the herpes 'family'. Maybe you should do some research.

We can't tell you what it is, and if she wants to, she could get it treated herself. And she probably is already, it's just healing.

You shouldn't let whether someone has a coldsore or not stop you from wanting to date them. If you're that shallow, then you need to sort out yourself before you try to date people.

Most people have cold sores... not dating someone just because they get them is actually quite horrible D=

Just because she has a cold sore, doesn't automatically mean that it's herpes. If you give it sometime, it'll go and then you can date her if you want to.

Simple solution.

Just don't kiss her while she has her cold sore.

I get cold sores sometimes and I always make sure not to kiss whoever I've with at the time so I don't pass it on to them. BUT she's already told you it's not a cold sore so I don't really think she'd lie about that?

It could always be a zit, I always get zits on my lip line. But yeah, if you're worried, then just don't kiss her when she has an active one.

You could have had a cold sore when you were young and not noticed it. Around 80% of adults/young adults have had a form of the herpes virus. It's really nothing to worry about.
