    I have a bump on my lip right under my mustache; I think it's a hair bump, but it's been there for a few weeks. Now I am thinking it is a herpes sore; can you tell me what herpes really looks like?

    I dont to much know how oral herpes look but genital herpes and oral herpes should look close to the same. They look like a cold sore, except they hurt and they look really juicy. Talk to a doctor as soon as possible because it colud be just a normal cold sore. Dont kiss anyone.

    Hi Jay,


    I know you asked this question a long time ago, but I was wondering if you have a diagnosis and treatment option that you would like to share.  A Herpes blister will usually burn and will be filled with a clear or slightly pink fluid.  Only your doctor can make an official diagnosis however.


    We do have a great deal of information on the Herpes virus if you are still interested:
