I went to see my Doctor a few weeks after a girl I was seeing mysteriously disappeared from my house one day when I was at work. A few weeks after she left I noticed a few painful bumps on my tongue, I thought they were just "lie bumps". I knew they eventually went away or I would usually just bite them off. Well, they kept coming in numbers, and were so painful I couldn't even eat. I went to the doc, showed him and he told me they were just ulcers (possibly from diet, stress, etc.). They went away, and I thought I was fine. A month or so later, they came back, in numbers and then they would be gone.

After the second occurrence I was scared ****less and knew I had contracted an std from this girl (I went down on her and performed oral sex). Even though the doctor told me it was nothing to worry about, I went back, got some tests done, and they all came back negative. I knew I got tested for gonorrhea and syphilis, and they did some blood tests. I'm not sure if either of those could tell me if I have herpes 1 or 2?

Well the initial contact was in march. I'm now having severe pain in my mouth on my lips and my tongue. I have never had a cold sore on the outside of my mouth. I have this nasty white stuff that is always on the side of my tongue that I constantly chew off. My lips are always dry and hurt very bed. No form of chap stick I have used has been able to moisturize them.

I went back to the doc, showed him the whitening of my tongue and told him about my chronic dry lips and how painful it is and he still told me it was nothing to worry about.

What do I have to do to find out if I have Herpes or not? I am so scared and have been depressed ever since March. I haven't even spoken to a female other than on a friendly level because I am so scared that I have something.

The past week my anus and buttocks have been itching profusely at night and through out random times of the day. Could it be possible that I have Genital Herpes as well as Oral?? I don't know what to do.
