Can herpes symptoms show up inside of the mouth?

Dear Dr. Amy:

Wow, I thought I would never find information on this subject, but at any rate I’m gald I did. Question- can you have herpes in side the mouth, on your tongue? I’m sure this sounds strange, but I quess if you have to get it, it has to been somewhere real strange. Thanks for the info, and for being here.
Need to know,

Dr. Amy’s Response:

Dear Robot,

Yes, it is possible to have oral herpes which can be located on your lips, tongue, mouth, or throat. Warm, moist mucus areas are places where the herpes virus is attracted. That’s why genitals, anus, and eyes can also be host sites. I recommend that you see a physician to determine an accurate diagnosis and treatment for the problem you are experiencing.

I’m glad to hear you found this site to be helpful in obtaining information and suppport.
