I am seeing my girlfriend tomorrow
WHAT DO I DO ?!
but then we wouldn't be able to kiss which is still balls.
get her to blow you instead. then read her some poetry. happy days.
I can imagine that just being excruciatingly painful
no pain no gain chief!
That's the problem, are you sure you're not confusing this skin complaint with the (not really) similar acne?
you speed up the process of getting rid of them.
but yeah, it speeds up the process of getting over them. and they end up a fluid-filled blisters, so they ain't dry. the aftershave draws out the accummulated fluid behind the lip.
That's herpes man!
(not really- the dump bit that is. The herpes bit is right enough though).
It's just it wouldn't really matter if I could just sit at home and look horrific
DON'T PUT VASELINE ON IT or else it spreads and your whole face will be one huge coldsore
This is how I learned to never listen to my doctor. Also, first thing in the morning DO NOT YAWN! Rips it right open, bugger of a way to start the day.
I read somewhere to put teabags on it does that work? or is it just some kind of face-scab causing scam
Now we'll get one.
Is the active ingredient that does the trick. As found in zovirax. But also found in the cheaper generic stuff in the same quantities. So get that.
In truth, there's nowt you can do. I've suffered from 'em since I was young.
"Kissing someone if you have a cold sore can transfer the virus to any part of the body that you kiss them (including inside of the mouth and throat, or the genitals)" & "Preventing self-infection is simple. Do not touch the area during an outbreak. If you do, wash your hands as soon as possible with soap and warm water."- ...and much more depressing shizzle at http://www.herpes-coldsores.com/herpes_transmission.htm
It is a thorough downer that the ability of them to pop up whenever will never go away. I tend to get one at about this time of year (I'm thinking it's something to do with the change in weather?).
If it's any consolation, they seem to get less severe (or heal quicker) as you get older. Or is this my ability not to fiddle with 'em? Used to be a two week affair. Tends to be more like 5-7 days now.
I HATE THEM SO MUCH! But I guess I could have worse things to worry about. Life innit.
look a bit stupid (allegedly invisible - bah) but work a treat as it never scabs over and thus never cracks and you can't pick at it. Coldsores are horrid and these are the only thing that slightly improve the situation:
They are a bit pricey but I cut them in half, as they're too big anywway.
i hate them.
I haven't had one in over a year, but as everyone is talking about it and i'm thinking about it, most likely i will have one by tomorrow.
I got a coldsore the next day. True. It's a monster one too. Weird internet-contagion. Watch out everyone.
