I started having a little feeling on my left lower lip around end of mid week of May, wondered what it was but didn’t worry about it. Partner said his middle finger was red/swell. Then 6/1, my whole bottom lip was white with bubblish white stuff. I got my ambesol-20% Benzocaine & scrubbed it off.It hurt like hell but I didn’t know what this was but did not want this it there. It went away (almost all of it). Not sure of exact order of symptoms, but I began to itch on face cheeks, nose, inside eyes, around eyes, forehead, I was going mad) what had my partner given me. His finger was twice its size and he called to tell me it was pus filled on end. The white stuff came back on my lips in a few days and some tiny yellow blisters lined up in perfect rows on both sides of my tongue appeared. I had had some itching problems about a year ago when I’d sweat or went outdoors in sun early in mornings to walk a dermatologist prescribed 20 mg. of cetirizine a day. I had been off of that for 4 months now. I also take meds for depression. I am allergic to many antibiotics. I am a fair white woman who is aged and live in a hot state. I am not promiscuous and never have been I do not trust this partner though. Then I got a bit of a rash & 1 small white bump on one side of neck its itchy. It went away after a few days. Came back later on other side exact same thi. This itching in my eyes is crazy, got OTC meds for it at store was having terrible time getting immediate appt. with DR.’s I was trying to get appt.w/ primary care, urgent care, gyn., after my symptoms had mostly died down but the pain and itching. My partners finger was cultured by P.A. & told it was bacteria and she needled it 3 x’s to drain it and gave him rx for antibiotics, said I had a feared condition. Didn’t even really look at me. I have a few itchy small bumps on hands & fingers, on back throat,itch in female part, arms, inner thigh 4th dr. today yet nothing so far. I hate Dr’s so this is a real test for me.

Do you think I have Herpes virus I and II or either I or II or neither? No doctors seem to care or seem to look quickly and go away. Like there more scared than I. Today when I go it will be my 5th Doctor, I don’t think I will say anything about what I think, just my symptoms. I will go get the Igg test tomorrow as its been 4 weeks since the symptoms started. There not all gone but they have died down to simmering. The cetrizine helps a lot and the eye drops as needed. Thanks so much for your help.

it’s so hard to know about your symptoms from seeing them in writing vs. seeing them in person. I am assuming that his finger does have a bacterial infection as he did see a clinician and was given antibiotics. I’m also a little confused about the relationship between your lip and his finger. Were you sucking on his finger or how are they related? Have you had any swab testing done of the lip symptoms?

The tie in with his finger & my symptoms were they both started at the same time. My lower left lip started with some irritation while his finger he said began to feel kind of swollen. This was the last week of Mid May *28th * with neither of us really paying attention. Until my whole bottom lip was white with bubbles and his middle finger was double the size & red June 1.
I add partner in just for more info. for solving issue.
I will try to order the symptoms as they happened
1.lower lip beginning to irritate with white on left side
2.lower lip now full of whitish bubbles across, I took anbesol(20% benzocaine & scrubbed & rubbed till it all went away). OUCH! 3 days reappears
3. Partner called and said his finger on end of nail was pus filled and swollen. He came over and showed me. We went to urgent care. P.A. on duty swabbed it, concluded bacteria and needled it 3 x’s to drain, gave antibiotic rx. Told me I had feared condition as I tried
to explain my lip, pain, rash, itching all over I had been dealing with. She saw nothing so did nothing.
4. I continued to have horrific itching in eyeballs around eyes, nose, face, slight neck rash briefly, small clear, white bumps & red flat bumps seemed anywhere I touched I get a small white bump & itch.
5.In vagina I itched on top inner part than it spread. Partner was healing w/ no spread of symp.
I am taking all kinds of OTC to stop itching on skin, scalp, in & around eyes, vagina, taking 20 mg cetirizine left over from 1 yr. when I had sweat & sun itching.
I call all kinds of Dr’s see primary, symptoms have died now, she said she sees nothing. Again I explain & am ignored.Try to call gyn., urol.all are booked up. Now today makes 4 weeks since June 1st so I went to lab did a IgG type specific. Even though I have some bit of itching around & in eyes & on hands and fingers. Most symptoms r about gone. Do u think I have HSV 1,2 ?
*June 29 new symptom the last 3-4 days cuticles beds on hands r stinging/red.

You wrote to me that you having difficult with the forum but you are posting as you should and I don’t see any problems here. You are limited to three posts and you have done that now. I don’t see any relationship at all between his finger and your lip issues. For their to be a relationship between the two things there would have to be contact between your lip and his finger. But even then, the PA cultured out bacteria from the finger and HSV 2 is a virus – totally different things.
I don’t know why you think you might have HSV 2 – usually things on the lip are HSV 1 – but if you are worried about genital HSV 2 then you should see your gynecologist. You say that physicians don’t see anything when you go in so best to wait for your blood antibody test results and see what’s going on but there is no reason to believe that his finger and your lip have anything to do with one another.
You mentioned that you were not able to post the first time you paid so I am going to refund that (if indeed that processed). I have nothing to add here so It’s not likely that anything else you have to add will be useful.

I think that I get anxious with the computer and have too many windows open and thus maybe didn’t wait long enough for pages to load. I did indeed pay for the 1st round and I screwed it up. I probably didn’t let it load the second time (round) and the first time I hit the unfinished post with my stomach as I like to type laying down when I turned and looked at my clock. This time the 2nd round I went too fast for my computer and do not see the post. So, wrote that it didn’t load my post and when finished writing you in the non-forum area checked to see if anything was different and if my post had posted. Well yes it had so I am sorry about that. I get impatient it appears. I am new to all this and am in high level of anxiety with all this happening. I do apologize. Also in the second level of questions and responses I forgot to actually put my question in the correct box and put it in the Title box. I am again apologetic for my frustrating myself and you. Thanks for your help. I will just continue searching what is wrong with me. It is very worrisome. Keep up the great work.
