help! Back to back breakouts of more than one sore location at the same time!

Recommended Posts

Hiiii!

I dont know whats going on. I have had herpes/facial cold sores since i was a child, probably from a relative or such. Usually i will get one, and in the recent years, not a big one, that doesnt last that long either, thankfully. Sometimes very noticeable to anyone else.

Two weeks ago I got two on the upper lip, one just right of centre, and one in the right corner of upper lip - not attached. two separate sores. They went away about 4-5 days ago. Today I have the same one in the same spot back of the upper just off centre one, PLUS roughly the same location but below AND i can feel tingling on the upper left just off centre...What is going on??

I was a little thrown having two at once like that. Now I am just beside myself having back to back MULTIPLE breakouts..

:madd::embarassed:

Any help would be super, and insights as to why this may be happening. any help whatsoever to reduce the term of this breakout. i am so upset. Its bad enough walking around with one or even two. but having three in three separate distinct obvious locations is just embarrassing. I just don't even want to think about going to work.

I acquired the cold sore virus june of this year and have been getting a multiple blister outbreak every month. I can never predict where the blisters will appear or not appear, the only compensation is that the blisters are very tiny. I am on 1000mg per day valacyclovir suppression which has helped tremendously (I did not get an outbreak last month). Also, there is a thread on this forum which talks about how vitamin b12 (1000mcg or more) taken everyday sublingually helps prevent cold sores. I have been able to find sublingual b12 tablets at Walgreens. I hope this helps.

Also, important to note is that my condition improved gradually (initially my entire lip was burning and tingling probably due to too many blisters). The number of blisters gradually decreased to no blisters this month. Be patient, stick with the regimen (1000mg valacyclovir divided in half, taken 12 hours apart). If an outbreak occurs take the acute dose(2000mg valacyclovir taken 11 hours apart for a total of 4000mg valacyclovir in one day). Ask your doctor about dosing details. My case was pretty bad, but has greatly improved in several months. I am very happy.

thank you so much for the information. I have never been prescribed valacyclovir but i have read a few people taking it on here and say it helps. Do you take it every day endlessly? and you saw a decrease. thats good to know. i have some b12 here and vitamins C. I should be taking them but have slacked. I will start with those and see if i feel another outbreak in the next couple weeks again, then I will head to the doctor and ask about that prescription. I really appreciate the reply!

I take 1000mg valacyclovir everyday. I divide the tablet in half (500mg at 7am and 500mg at 7pm). It is a very easy to tolerate medication (I have experienced no side effects). I will continue to take it until several months pass without an outbreak, then I will test the waters.

      Really wasn't sure which topic to put this in! I'm guessing a lot of you will have seen the recent news that Mel B was rushed to hospital thinking she was blind from her eye herpes.  I know she's not as famous as she used to be, but I really don't understand why celebrities with a big presence aren't doing anything about this, such as fundraising for a cure or even just talking about it to raise awareness. Correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think she's ever spoken about it before!  She clearly suffers from some bad symptoms. Thinking that you've gone blind must have been one of the most terrifying experiences, and to me, after that ordeal I would try and do everything in my power to raise awareness and find a cure.  Maybe she just doesn't know about all the vaccination research that's currently happening, and how many of these places need the extra funding to keep going?  Not sure where I'm going with this 😂 But does anyone think it's worth getting in contact with her about raising some awareness?

      Hey @Alda whatever is going on for your arm you can rest assured it is not at all likely to be herpes. Could the blister type things be from the massage causing irritation, perhaps even contact dermatitis? If you aren't seeing improvement soon consider seeing the doctor but it doesn't strike me as anything of much concern.

      I need help; i went and got a massage and 2 days later my upper arm feels super sore and is red with 3 blister type things, each about a small pea size the place I got a massage at was  not very sanitary , it was hot in there and the masseuse was sweating I think (i do have the down south H but haven’t had a breakout in about a year and I still don’t.) my arm does not itch just super sore. I wonder what is on my arm. any ideas?

      It did! There are combinations you can take that will not give you this effect, I just didn't want to do medication anymore. What I am doing https://www.amazon.com/MakingCosmetics-BHT-4-4oz-125g/dp/B01DE780OS read Steve Fowkes free book BHT1/8 t in coconut liquid MCT chain oil. Extremely hard to dissolve. I leave it for a day, must read Steve Fowkes free book online, overdose gets people dizzy! More is not better! Oils will also not get Rancid if you put some in your cooking oils! whole food vitamin, glutamine 3x one gram, suggested by case9 love it DHEA,25mg, most people who breakout have low levels lugols iodine worked way to four drops. Fulvic acid minerals. Thyriod granular meds   When I used to have obs I used monolaurin and st.John s wort. I used diaper rash cream for obs I also still spray genitals with zinc sulfate mixed with water. I learned it kills any virus plus summer sweat won't smell at all!  There is one thing I will not be without and that's BHT and zinc sulfate
