Can I use two different treatments together?

I hate cold sores

Hi,

Just back from the docs as I woke up yesterday with a huge cluster of blisters in and around my nose and my whole bottom lip covered in them.

She prescribed me with Aciclovir tablets 200mg and told me to take them 5 times a day for 5 days.

I've suffered from cold sores since I was little but they seem to be gettin worse as I get older and this is the first time I've had them anywhere else but my mouth. I look totally deformed! I've had to take the day off work, which makes me feel stupid (with it being because of a cold sore!) but it is pretty severe, it makes my whole face ache.

Do you think it might be ok to use Penciclovir cream aswell as taking the tablets? I would like them to be gone within days if possible!

Thanks

Raechel

I think so.... I get cold sore on my nose too its awful :( I have found that if I feel one coming on I put ice on it for as long as i can stand it and that keeps it from even popping out! Ice and tons of lysine!

I know! I melted 4 cubes of ice on my face the night before last! ha. Must have been too late to catch it though. It's a nightmare!

I've been gettin them since I was a baby but never this bad, I'm just gonna lock myself in doors til my face looks human again.

I hate cold sores too!

Sorry this is happening to you.

Supposedly herpes is supposed to get less severe with age but mine has gotten worse too. I use to only get them on my lip but now it has spread to other places with age. Ugh.

Try and hang in there.

have you ever tried dynamiclear? It works well for coldsores on the mouth at least for me. It scabs the sores up within hours and brings swelling down.

Thanks for the responses, no I've never heard of dynamiclear but I'm going to try and get some tomorrow now! Thanks!

It's good to know there are people out there who know what it's like...or at least people who admit to it! ha. I'll let you know when it clears up, I'm going for a record of 3 days! I have a night out planned and I can not look like a deformed ogre! x

      I read an article about arganine vs lysine. The tests they get this info off were done in a test tube and not on humans. There was also another study done on mice with herpes. Mice die from herpes and when they gave the group of mice higher arganine than the 2nd group, it actually kept them alive longer than the group not given it. I was taking lysine until recently and I've noticed no difference and I eat a vegan diet which is higher in arganine. The only thing lysine seems to do is stop the itchy tingling feeling I get but then again that might be in my head like the placebo effect.

      When I had my first and second outbreak of genital hsv1, I had a weird thing happen with my throat.  The first time which was 2 days before the sores appeared, I woke up in the night unable to breath because my throat felt like it had closed up. The second time it happened it was the same thing but much milder.

      Maybe try black seed oil 1 t? Maybe a sauna or there is a group that will help you build an infared tent. Really great for acne and it will disappear while doing it.  Hormone inbalance?

      im surprise not more are trying to find the cure for it, with the amount of people that have it around the world it's the most profitable thing in medicine to cure.
