    Inside Mouth Blisters?

    I have genital herpes. A friend just called me and she is in total panic mode. She has been sexual with a partner who also has genital herpes, but my friend does not.

    My friend had a stiff neck yesterday and has blisters toward the back of her mouth/throat (including on the roof toward the back).

    I told her to quit panicking, but that I would see what I could find out.

    What do you know about herpes manifesting itself INSIDE the mouth?

    Thanks a lot [for your quick replies].

    Curious-

    Herpes can easily manifest itself anywhere there are mucous membranes or anywhere the tissue is thinner. Herpes has a hard time penetrating thicker areas of skin like on your arm or leg.

    My recommendation would be for your friend to get to the doctor while the blisters are there to have a culture done, as this is the only way to tell for sure if it's herpes or not.

    Re: Inside Mouth Blisters?

    First, blisters at the back of the throat can be a symptom of a strep virus (there is more than one strain of strep). I had the worst strain of strep when I was in my early 20's...my symptoms were a VERY sore throat w/blisters toward the back of the throat (upper and sides) as well as a very sore neck and high fever (with some other body aches). My throat was swabbed and the culture results were back within 3 days testing positve for strep throat.

    I'd be telling your friend to calm down and see a Dr. before freaking out any further. She will not get any certain answers by this approach. Many of the herpes symptoms can be that of other ailments as well. Tell her to see a Dr. ASAP (most especially while the blisters/sores are visible and still present).

    Take care of your friend and bring her to see a Dr. yourself if you must. That's my advice
