I was aware of the years of publication, thanks.... I posted because I thought there was no way to reach the ganglia with medication, and it seems it may not always be the case.

I think you are in the right track. A delivery mechanism is key, but that also depends on what you are delivering. It’s definitely worth bringing this up, recent studies have found things like Bx795 which can clear the infection from cells, including nerve cells, but it would have to be delivered directly to those cells without off target impacts.

"Injection of the anthracycline antineoplastic drug doxoribicin directly in the nerve of rats resulted in nerve cell body destruction... including those neurons infected with HSV... Bystandard neuronal cell death and dense sensory lose would be an unacceptable consequence of ricin therapy..."

      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:)
