Since January, I have burning lips, then in February when my boyfriend and I got together and he kissed me that first night all over my face. I got burning cheeks and burning eyes. I've been in pain everyday.I also had a burning tingling hand. Since February my boyfriend has burning cheeks, eyes, light sensitivity. Sore throat, painful tongue, had a bleeding nose. He also has tingling hands, feet, tingling ***k. Burning balls. We did use a condom. One condom broke though.

Problem is everytime we type burning lips in the internet, herpes comes up. We have no blisters. We are in pain daily. Because we have no blisters, we can't get a diagnosis for Herpes. I live in Canada and they refuse to give us a blood test for herpes.

I do have HSV 1 in the Vagina. I'm taking Valtrex. I'm still in Daily pain with my face even though I'm on Valtrex. My boyfriend who can't get diagnosed for Herpes (no blisters) orally or on his penis can't get the treatment. If that is what it is?

We've been to 7 doctors, 2 emergency rooms, 1 dentist, 1 eye doctor. 1 skin specialist. If it's not herpes, what is it then. We've been going to the doctors weekly. It's tiring, we're in pain and have no hope for the future. Help please.
