So at work last night I cut my finger, got home a few hours later and popped what I thought was a zit.... realized as soon as I'd done it, there was a blister on my bottom lip... I quickly washed my hands, applied Abreva and washed them again, I got up this morning, found a bunch of blisters on my lip and right below my lip, I quickly opened my new thing of abreva, slicing my finger on the packed, same finger btw as the previous cut, now my question is, I applied Abreva with my bar fingers on the opposite hand, but I washed my hands together, as in rubbing them with soap lathering them up.... how possible is it that I might have allowed a part of the virus into that cut??????

Hey honey, you used soap and water and the antivirals meds on the sores along with soap and water on both hands, I'd say your fine. My question is your hands were not washed before you popped that zit, you probably added bacteria into the area you popped. I'd say you gave urself a bacterial infection from dirts under fingernails and non washed hands. Herpes doesn't live in water or soap or airborne. My guess is its just infected pimples now.

Oh no... it's cold sores, the blister was clear, my skin was tight, my lip is swollen... it's a cold sore and my lymph node under my chin is swollen.... I'm just concerned about it ended up on my finger... I don't know everytime I get cold sores I get supper depressed... and just make them worse...

If you've had cold sores for a while now, the chance of spreading it to a different part of your body - like fingers - is just about zero.

      It is already a hassle getting started with making it.  I end up with more questions than I can find answers for, but stumble on...  I am retired so feel like my job is (finally) taking care of myself.  I have had few health issues, generally healthy--except for the H bomb.  If i have to make liposomal 2x a week, i dont think it will be a big deal.  The big deal is getting the equipment and getting started i think.  I make kombucha, which is sort of like having a not-very-demanding pet.  I dont mind doing this kind of stuff.  But will probably keep liposomal capsules or packets on hand for times when its inconvenient to make it. I cant believe u r sucking down 6 g of AA at a time!  The most i drink with AA is 2 g at a time.  I am currently taking 4 g AA and 9 g liposomal C in caps/packets. The protocol evolves.  I am so thrilled to not have BO's that i dont care what i have to do. They ruined my life.  I am glad u r finally getting good results with your fight against H.  Have u tried drinking the AA thru a straw with the straw toward the back of your mouth to avoid teeth?  I would think baking soda and water swished around in your mouth after drinking the AA would neutralize any remaining acid.  My teeth have pretty strong enamel, so i dont worry about it (but dont do 6 g AA at a time).  If u r worried about acid erroding tooth enamel, why arent u worried about 6 g of AA at a time going down the soft tissues of your esophagus and onward?  Im not saying its wrong, just wondering.   
    • Not sure what I’ve got
      Additionally to the above and to answer you question more precisely, it had been 12 days (probably more) before I started to get itchy (I could swear the rash started as insect bites, each very distinct - I am in a hostel so there is a chance it was bedbugs). Before that it had been a week or two.  I also had been cycling intensely in 35 plus degree heat (temps were around 38 degrees today. And the spot where the rash showed up is the exacts spot where my upper thigh rubs the seat. Finally, my clothes were washed by a laundry service, and the T-shirt I was wearing that was washed in the same load had been irritating my skin.

      @Sabayou have no need to be concerned with genital herpes. Your symptoms are not those of herpes.  If you have concerns, seek out the type specific HSV testing.

      Yes, really would be an improvement not have to Carry the burden of transmission...many people are researching cures and treatments, but sadly everything takes too much time
