Good afternoon, I’m a 23-year-old pregnant woman and my pregnancy is currently 29 weeks. Yesterday the spots appeared around my lower lip and if examined more closely like there is liquid in it. Is it really herpes? Because I read that pregnant women with herpes are at risk of passing on to their babies, especially if there is a pregnancy in the third trimester. I haven’t checked with the doctor because my obstetric control schedule is still 5 days away, I just used alcohol and acyclovir ointment only. My question is this really herpes? And if it’s true, what kind of herpes is this? And what should I do in the future to get better soon and my baby is not infected.

Hello Wiji,

Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Watery spots on the lower lip can indicate shingles, but can also occur due to other causes, such as chicken pox, impetigo, scabies, allergic contact dermatitis, irritant contact dermatitis, drug eruptions, herpetiformis dermatitis, and so on. Distinguishing spots caused by various causes above is actually quite easy for doctors. However, this is not the case with ordinary people. Improper handling of this condition, especially during pregnancy, in addition to making complaints not go away, also has the potential to interfere with the development of the fetus in your womb.

Watery pimples that appear due to shingles are generally reddish, itchy, sore, and also hot. These spots are usually spread on one side of the body, limited to parts that are innervated by certain nerve fibers. Shingles sufferers often also experience joint pains, weakness, decreased appetite, increased sensitivity to glare, and so on.

Our advice, so that the handling of your condition is clear, it is better for you to consult a doctor, obstetrician, or dermatologist right? No need to wait for a control schedule to check your complaints. Early inspection can actually make your condition handled faster.

At this time, you are advised not to squeeze or slough off any spots that appear, especially with dirty hands. Be diligent in washing your face with mild cleansing soap 2 times a day. Diligent also brush your teeth, followed by gargling using an antiseptic mouthwash. Avoid excessive consumption of hot, spicy foods so they don't come in direct contact with your lips. Not too much to use cosmetics around the lips. Do not forget, multiply to drink and eat a variety of nutritious foods so that the immune system is always maintained.

Hope this helps ...
