Angular cheilitis is a sound explanation for the sore in the corner of my niece’s lips. I searched images & breathed a sigh of relief because hers looks quite the same (only milder) as what I saw.
I’m sorry, I’m not very tech savvy & can’t figure out how to post the pictures. Their quality isn’t all that great anyway. The bump was maybe 2 mm in diameter and pinkish/red about the same color as my lip itself. When I touched it I could tell that it was there because it was ever-so-slightly raised, but there was no pain or any unusual sensation. It went away within a couple days without ever becoming more noticeable.
My boyfriend doesn’t take antivirals. I was antibody tested (low negatives for both) a couple weeks ago & am going in again tomorrow. Honestly I’ve never been worried about contracting HSV-2 orally because I thought it’s nearly impossible to get. Is genital-to-oral HSV-2 infection just as easy as genital-to-genital infection?
