You can get herpies in your mouth, but it's not genital herpes. It's the herpes simplex 1. It's very common, and produces those ulcer type canker sores. My mom has had them most of her life. If you're immune suppressed, you're more likely to get this type of herpies. Genital herpes is simplex 2.
Just let your rheumy know about them, and they can determine if it's the herpies simplex 1 or if it's from your lupus. Regardless of what it is, there isn't a cure for it. My mom uses the "Equate" brand mouthwash from Walmart! She says it works perfectly at keeping those little buggers from even forming! She uses it every day a couple of times. And it's cheap!
Hope they go away quickly for ya,
I can do anything through Jesus Christ who strengthens me. I have learned in whatever state I am in,to be content. Phillipians 4:11-13
