My name is Betty and I live in San Diego.

Once a month I have cold sore on my lips.

Sometimes it gets so bad that it covers my whole cheek.

I hate it. I tried so many cremes but nothing can stop it!!

As soon as I feel "the itch" I put something but one day later have it...

Thanks for listening...

hey betty.. I just found your post..

I personally can't relate to what you're going thru, b/c I have genitial herpes.. and well my sores i can hide..

they can still get the best of me when they hit a panty line and it's miserable to walk..

but ..

I was wondering if you've tried different solutions? I take lysine and I'm a firm believer..

Some suggestions...

Have you seen a doctor about this? A doctor can prescribe Valtrex or some other antiviral med for you and that could help.

Lysine often helps as does vitamin c, ginseng and other things that are known to help the immune system.

I have used Dynamaclear on my genital herpes with some success. It is a bit expensive but you only need on drop per outbreak/sore so it lasts a long time. Some people say it burns a lot although my experience has been that it burns for about a half a minute. It really helps my outbreaks heal faster and it seems to also help prevent them.

      Any advice on on how i can change the way she thinks of her insecurities in the event I ever see her again or hang out with her or do you guys think that it's better too just walk away. The truth is though i never met another girl like her before and she was fine with me having herpes i could tell by the she reacted too it . How do you change the way someone views them self that has low self esteem.

      Note @Asr624 that an IgM result does not confirm a herpes diagnosis. Was the rash swabbed as well?

      Yes it's entirely possible that he didn't know and just now gave it to you. I've been with my husband almost 19 years and he was recently tested and is still negative. It's still possible of course that I could give it to him at any point. Sounds like you have a strong marriage and there is no reason this needs to be an issue other than a minor annoyance. I have 2 healthy children and have had no related medical issues due to HSV.

      I have been with him and didn’t tell him and now I can’t tell him because I know it would ruin any chance of reconciliation. I don’t want to live with this and I don’t want to live without him

      I am so sorry that happened to you. No one deserves that. Praying for you.
