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.

Try a Lysine supplement for cold sores

      I wish you luck my friend! It’d be nice to find something! The only two things I’ve ever tested positive for during this whole mess was a fungal infection in the groin creases, found by biopsy, and the nerve biopsy found nerve damage. I just hate thinking I’m unluncky enough to have HSV1 which is suppose to be the most tame where supposedly people have few if any problems with it, and mine have been endless! Do you have extremely sweaty scrotum and inner thighs when you wake up and periodically throughout the day? That’s been driving me nuts!

      This was about 10 mins ago I tried squeezing it to see if anything came out of it, it also didn’t hurt sorry for the pics I am also on my period so it isn’t going to be nice, I’m sorry for this !:(

      Sorry to bombard your post hun but I’ve got a cut too on my vagina (labia) I shaved the night previous and the next day I had an itch so I itched with but I didn’t put my hand down their I used my knickers and all of a sudden I felt an irratation so I went to go have a look and I found this, it doesn’t hurt when touched and doesn’t hurt when I pee I can sit around and stuff, is this the same thing as yours? I’m going insane right now I’ve got health anxiety I want to cry thinking I have herpes 1st pic is what it was like when I looked first  2nd pic is when I got out the shower  3rd pic is now  and 4th pic is when I tried squeezing it to see if anything came out of it ( it never hurt either)  After shower pic

      That is exactly what mine look like (on one side of labia anyway) and the rest are kind of dark red flat pimple bumps
