Patient : I have been researching hpv 1 oral herpes and I am trying to figure out if I have it. And i am freaking out. I noticed a bump on my bottom lip. My lip was slightly swollen and it looked like dry skin, white coloring. It was a little sore, but its not itching, burning or tingling right now. It has not blisterd at all and it looks like it has scabed spotless, I have a sore throat but no flu or fever symptoms. Eating and drinking is not difficult. I noticed all of this yesterday, this morning there are a few very small red scabed parts on my lip. It looks like they were dry and cracked possibly. I was going to see my doctor today but the office is closed Sundays.
