I have had HSV 1 orally for about 5 years now. I get one bump once a year. However, I just got over an outbreak and it looks like there is a sscar there I have never had this happen before. Does anyone know what might have caused this. Thanks!

It should be pretty obvious what caused this. The lesion associated with the outbreak.

kandikaaiin replied to georgiagail's response:
I understand that it is the lesion, but I have never had a "scar" from an outbreak until now. My recent outbreak hasn't been any different from the past ones. I am just wondering why I am getting this scar now.
