The Worst

Recommended Posts

My normal outbreaks are small and short I got really lucky but this one is almost as bad as my primary and has been going on for almost a week. I have been taking Valtrex like directed by my doc and its helping but not a whole lot. It is so bad I started crying and even bleeding down there from the outbreak. I have been taking pain pills to help and they do help but only for a little while. I just want this outbreak to be over already but it doesn't look like it will end for another few days Hopefully the Valtrex is working!!

Sorry to hear you are having a rough time. You might consider asking your dr for a lidocaine gel prescription. It numbs the area a bit. Epsom salt baths are also good to relieve some pain. You can find epsom salt in most drug stores or that sort of section of other stores.

I will have to ask my doc about lidocaine gel if it helps even just a little it would be worth it! Thank you!!

      literally cold sores just make my whole mouth area numb and in pain, especially when i eat food or take a shower. it's super hard too when you are trying not to break open the scab but daily activities tend to make it worse. luckily, i don't get headaches or anything so bless your souls, just a lil runny nose and lots of pain.   i have found some natural remedies/OTCs ease the pain. ice for example always makes it feel more numb, but i have to wait until the scab isn't super delicate.   i made a parody to 7rings by ariana grande destigmatizing cold sores-- give it a chance:) and if you like it, repost with the hashtag #realslimsorechallenge with your own tips to shorten coldsores everywhere! they friggin suck!!!!! we gotta be here for eachother:)
