Okay so I have this bump it’s on the lip(ish) at the bottom. It is only ichy some times or if I touch it it hurts. The lump is kinda hard it’s pretty big and it some what looks like a bug bit. I don’t think it’s cancer or a sexually transmitted disease because I’m a virgin and never done Any thing sexual and I’m not sure it’s one of those blisters because I don’t see any one that has it say there’s a hole like a big bite. I have to wait a week to get home to make an appointment so I’m freaking out.
Hello! Thank for trusting Healthcentral with your health question. It could be a itchy pimple, bug bite, or a cold sore. A cold sore is also called herpes simplex 1, this is different from genital herpes. According to the World Health Organization (WHO) 67% of the population has the herpes simplex 1 virus. Although I understand your concern, the virus is very common and is nothing to panic over. Also herpes simplex 1 can be transmitted through kissing even if the person does not have any physical symptoms. Those with the virus are most contagious days before a blister ever appears. A doctor can take a swap of the area and tell you exactly what you are dealing with… Regardless I think you will be ok. Please keep us updated on your progress.
