So I think I may have HPV-1, or Oral Herpes.
I'm coming to you guys because I can find criminally little information on dealing with it and living with the virus.

About 4 days ago I noticed tiny white dots on my upper lip (there are none on the bottom), of course I immediately assumed herpes as I've been living with my GF for three months. They're very small, like grains of sand, off-white in color bordering on yellow, some are clustered and some are not, they extend in a rough line across the middle of my top lip and to the sides of my mouth, what clusters there are, are roughly symmetrical.
However I can't be sure it's herpes as there has been no swelling, itching, pain, no ulcers have formed so far, in about a week I will able to see my doctor and get his advice.

Until then, how do I minimize the damage? I will of course assume it's herpes until proven otherwise. What precautions should I take to avoid spreading it to other people, and avoid spreading the virus to other parts of my body?

For example if I wash my face with a towel, do I risk spreading it from my mouth to my eyes? If I bite my nail do I risk spreading it to my finger? If I were to wash my face, then my genitals with the same towel, could it spread there too? I can't find this information anywhere and most of the information available to me is speculation on internet forums. I can't even reliably find pictures of early stage HPV-1 to compare to my own case, as all the available pictures are horrible worst-case-scenario photos of people riddled with the virus, rather than an informative progression in stages.
I have been led to believe that the virus being transmitted via drinking glasses and sharing towels is largely untrue as the virus cannot survive for any period of time on inanimate objects, is that true?

My GF has performed oral sex on me, yet I have had no symptoms on my genitals, would there be a special reason for that, or does it support me not infact having the virus? I have been through many dietary and environmental changes since I have moved in with her, could it be something related to that? I understand that dermatology is very difficult and diagnosis is hard even under a real medic…

Worldwide rates of either HSV-1 and/or HSV-2 are between 60 and 95% in adults.
So take a chill pill. I have herpes you have herpes and these two dudes /\ probably also have herpes infection. The main thing is that most of the infected individuals don't express blisters if they are not experiencing a lot of stress or they have normal immunological reaction.

It is necessary to understand that Herpes simplex virus can be transmitted sexually /with body fluids but mostly expresses itself when the infected person is expressing blisters. So my advice for you, a bit late though, is to not kiss your girlfriend or newborn babies (!!!!)

Doesn't sound like anything infectious OP. Pics? Pics would help.
Herpes hurts, ever had oral herpes? if not, it should hurt even more the first time, and you could experience general symptoms like fever.
If it's infectious, no matter if it's HPV or herpes, your GF is already infected. Herpes is in your saliva all the time if you are infected, not only when the dissease is active. And HPV, well, now that is contagious. Ever kissed that girl? she's got whatever you have, and visceverse.
Now if it's HPV you shouldn't worry. It's the same that produces warts; and the same as warts it should go away in some time. Worry only if it continue to grow or if it hurts.
Remember that your skin is a barometer of your emotions and general health. If you're going for so much changes in your life as you mention it will express in your skin is some way, could be several things.

Also, herpes, unlike HPV, is NOT a local infection. You cannot spread it into your eyes or anything, because the virus already is in your nerves, shit is systemic, and from there it can go to several places. But don't worry, it won't. Unless you have AIDS, which I assume you don't. It's a pretty benigne infection.
Same with HPV, you already have it everywhere, no matter if it's producing clinical expressions or not, it's all over your skin.
Also, you're mixing things with the viruses. Herpes is 1 and 2, for upper body and genitals respectively, but for HPV you have a lot of types, being 1, 2, 63, 27 and 57 the ones you usually have in warts and normal skin.
So don't worry! because there's nothing you can do!

Thanks so much for your replies guys it makes me feel a lot better, unfortunately I cannot provide pictures because none of my cameras are sensitive enough to pick up the bumps, they're too small.
It's been about a week now with mild spread of the bumps across the top lip and to the corners of the mouth, there still has been no fever, swelling, redness, no blistering and no pain or unusual sensations of any kind.
Is it safe to say that I don't have Herpes?

I think it pretty much is. Herpes causes vesicles that break into little ulcers, that's not what you described, and as said it causes pain. Could be an atypical form, but anyways even if it was herpes there's little to do but waiting for it to simply leave (there are some medications that accelerate the process but nothing more). And then again the majority of adult population are asymptomatic carriers of the infection and they live just normally, so don't be very afraid of herpes even if you have it.
But watch out your stress levels, try to eat a healthy low fat diet, and avoid smoking and drinking much this days; your skin is trying to tell you that something is not perfectly right with your current lifestyle.

In yhe last few days ive been finding it hard to poop most of the time and often times i get mucus in my poop like in the picture. I do have very slight discomfort in my stomach and bladder regions as well but its not horrible. What could it possibly be?

Had any other symptoms? Nausea? Do you pee normally? I suggest you start living a healthy life for a few days, with better diet, more fibber, water, to help your intestins. And don't do that 3meopcp thing, whatever the fuck that is, if you think that is what is causing the symptoms. And see if you get better. If you don't, I suggest doctor.
Also, if there's fever, or the pain increases, I have some bad news for your wallet, you gotta see a doctor if you wanna tell the tale.

mucus is a typical response to the irritation of anal canal
it is very likely plugging is causing this
stop plugging for a few days and avoid doing it so often in the future

How old are you? You shouldn't need that until you're like 45 at least. Anyways, in general you should ask for an urologist because not every doctor knows when a prostate is enlarged, it takes practice.
If you'll ask for a PSA remember not to have sex or ride a bike 2 days before you go because that would make it higher than your normal.

unless it itches id just say you have dry feet or early fungal infection.

Try washing your feet with soap once a day and changing your socks everyday (make sure they are clean obvs). Keeping your shoes clean is a good idea as well.
Dont forget to let your feet get some air every now and then, walking around barefoot in a clean house might do some good as well.

No need for antibiotics or anything. If it gets worse, go to the doctor

Here's the background: I grew in a quite unhealthy environment. My grandma was morbidly obese. My granddad was an alcoholic. Same for my father. More or less the same shit for all of my older brothers as well as other people there - various health problems, usually of their own making. Crass eating habits, lots of drinking and smoking, My mother was one of the very few exceptions but she died a year ago. Stress got her, I suspect. I am relatively healthy, all thanks to her.

I haven't seen any old timer there that looked healthy, at least as much as that's possible for an old timer. I'm moderately anxious of following the path of my father and brothers. Is it possible to make it into the old age and retain one's well-being? What to do to achieve that? Do you have any real people examples around you?

So, when I was 17-18 I did Tylenol 1's w/ Codeine a handful of times. I would take 33 8 mg/325 mg tablets, which contains nearly 10 grams of Tylenol.

I forget the sheer number of times I did this. But it must've been around 12 or 15?

One time I took 3 doses in a day, and went to the ER and got Mucomyst, and am fine.

I am 22 now. Almost 23. It has been nearly 5 years since I've done this shit. My doctor tells me my liver enzymes are elevated when viewing my bloodwork.

Does this mean I have liver damage? fatty liver? cirrhosis? I didn't press the doctor on what this could mean. Does the liver regenerate/heal itself?

I ask because I feel fatigued a lot, and I have experienced weight gain.

I got the same results last year, OP. I never did anything bad to my liver though.

I got a checkup again 2 months later, and it was no longer elevated.

A lot of things can cause this; there are simply too many possible factors. Don't worry yourself over shit like cirrhosis and fatty liver and all that shit, I went through the same search for answers as you, nothing was found. I believe it was because I was doing a lot of ketamine and MXE the night before my checkup. Some drugs like those will give you temporary enzyme boosts for some reason.

Don't fret, man. Check up on this shit in 2 months and if it's still like that (try not to do any drugs (including alcohol) for a week to make sure it's not a temporary boost), there are a few tests that the docs can do to look and see what the deal is.

But seriously, it happens sometimes, just check back in a while to see if it's still there or not. You likely have nothing to worry about. And yes, the liver does heal itself.

The liver is the most forgiving or organs OP, but dont use that as an excuse.

You should really discuss it with your doctor, there is no better way to get an idea. The internet is good, but not as reliable as your doctor who most likely has experience with other patients with similar cases and is able to give you a decent picture of your case.

I live somewhere that drinking the tap-water is a straight nope, and that leaves plastic bottled water or soda water from glass bottles. Or of course coconut water, straight up from actual coconuts. I heard it hydrates the body more efficiently that actual water, but could you live off that and have no health complications?

Nope, you would get horrible diarreah and get very sick, in extreme cases get malformed tummy and shit, followed by death.

But it is healthy in moderation of course and a good alternative to bottled water!
I'm so glad that I can drink water like straight from wherever, I try to never buy anything with plastic unless it can't be avoided, only buying soda in glass bottles or bringing my drinking bottle.

Hey guys. So for about 3 or 4 months I've had this ache in my anus which makes me feel like I have to go to the bathroom, like a full sensation. I started noticing this after I slept with some girl without protection which made me paranoid and stressed. I went and got 2 full panel STD tests in the course of 3 months and both of them were negative. I went to Kaiser to get it checked out, because my symptoms pointed to hemmorhoids and I wouldn't be surprised because I've been eating like shit, and sure enough I had 2 internal hemmorhoids and 1 external. I was prescribed hydrocortisone suppositories but I still have this feeling of anal fullness. What should I do ? Is this something I should worry about? Its SEVERELY stressing me out. Could this be something else ? I tested negative for everything including HSV 1 and 2. HPV men can't test for but could this be an HPV symptom? Please give me input about how to get rid of of this feeling of unfinished bowl movement. Could this be the cause of any other infection? Would the doctor have been able to tell if it was something else? I would REALLY appreciate any knowledgeable medical advice especially a professional. I want to know if I can scratch STDs off the list as the cause and start working on eating more fiber and eating healthier so if it is hemmorhoids this feeling will eventually cease.
