Hello

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.

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.
