I have what doesn't feel like a cold sore on my lower lip. It is only in a small area. It doesn't feel like a cold sore though.
think shingles is only caused by the small pox virus (i could be mistaking). However if I am not unless you had small pox lately you might want to get the bumps checked out. Could be the virus. Wouldnt want to go on spreading that around to someone unknowingly.
shingles is from the chicken pox virus not the small pox virus, but I did know of a lady that had a shingles on the
side of her face and it was quite painful, and sometimes
takes a couple years to go away. You should have it looked at, if it is shingles, theres medicine for that too.
shingles is from the chicken pox virus -basically chicken pox is a herpes virus herpes zoster more precisely - they feel and look the same as herpes simplex - and all can effect any part of the body. though herpes simplex 1 usually oral and 2 genital - are most viable in those locations. shingles is basic a person that has recurrent outbreak of the chicken pox virus or herpes zoster .. anyhow its painful as can be - and very infectious.
