Thank you for your valuable time and knowledge. I have one more concern. I think I am obsessing over this virus but I want to get this one thing out of the way as well.
Regarding a scenario, my mother developed a red patch at border of her lower lip (partially on lip and partially over the border). It had 2 red spots in it that were darker than the rest of patch. I saw it carefully, there were no blisters or vesicles and she did not report of any other symptoms. 24 hours later, I checked it again, redness was 50% gone except those two spots were darker than the rest of the patch and the skin over it was little textured. And my mom said, it sting when she touched sanitizer over it. There was seemingly horizontal cuts on there and they were very very very minute. Now almost three days later, redness is 80 percent gone and no blisters and skin looks intact. My mom said, she might had bit that area with lip but not sure. The one thing that bothers me was that why those minute cuts(2-3 cuts or cracked skin) appeared and obviously the red patch. Does this sound like herpes outbreak at all? Can herpes outbreak happens without blisters? P.S. it never blistered, no scab. Its almost 48 hours old lesion now.
I hope I am not overly obsessed with this.
