Herpes Free! (probably)
Feb. 12th, 2006
This is a horribly embarassing event that I just had to share. I know it may seem at times that I could be a hypochondriac, but when mysterious physical symptoms pop up.. it's hard to think they're all in my head.
After a night of heavy drooling I woke up to find little bumps all over the drool trail. I panicked and assumed that I had some how broken out with dozens of little cold sores just beyond the borders of my lips by managing to contract herpes unknowingly. Although most coldsores are on the lips or right on the lipline.. and I don't come in contact with people, in general, and I've never had cold sores before...so it seemed odd.. but it was the first thing that popped into my mind for mouth area blisters.
I have no idea what it is, but it itches like hell. The no health insurance thing means it's not going to get a professional looking at unless it starts to look like flesh eating disease. I don't believe it could be an allergic reaction to anything. I'm thinking and hoping it's impetigo, although usually people who get that are 2-6 years of age.. I could just have a crappy immune system cause I don't get enough sunlight and exercise and stress about things too much. Knowing it's probably not herpes is a huge relief though.
I must apologize cause I know lots of people have the mouth herpes and it probably isn't a something I should consider killing myself over.. but I was majorly bummed out about it for the past couple days. Also.. I had chicken pox as a kid, and that's a type of herpes. So I'm not actually herpes free. Oops!
Anyway.. the cheesily sad part is that whether it's herpes virus or streptococcus bactera.. it's contagious and that means I shouldn't bring others in contact with it until it clears up.
