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

      Ok well the red spots have gone away, do you still have any external symtpoms?

      Looks a bit similar to what I have. People will tell you it’s not herpes because it’s spred out or does not look like herpes, but my doctors are running out of answers/prescriptions to give me. ive had a host of other symptoms never before felt in my body. my tests are negative for now. I had a swab yesterday, but I’m not sure if it was an area that will yield anything. It was more a plea of something hurts, please swab this. its taken me months to get someone to swab me. I recently found out a hospital did not test my blood for HSV even after I requested it. Messed up, huh?

      Ok So I had unprotected sex with a girl about 5 days ago and the day after I had masturbated an abnormal amount for whatever reason. The following day I noticed my urethra and penis had a bit of pain and then I began to have abnormal pelvic pain, though the lymphnodes in my groin area were not swollen or sensitive. After about three days the pelvic pain continued and my urethra soreness continued as well despite my lack of masturbation. I have also had abnormal headaches and my usual lower back pain as an active athlete. No sores or lesions of sorts just a couple of red spots as I had shaved recently before having the unprotected sex and all these red spots are painless and do not itch. I have also had a constant urge to pee. I am on a rollercoaster of convincing myself that I do not have it and then hitting the internet with my symptoms and going into a panic that I could have HSV 2. Am i being a hypochondriac or should I be worried? Thanks guys
