I feel so jipped in life. I really do.

See, I started having outbreaks when I was in kindergarten. I thought everyone had these sort of mouth sores because my mother had them. The only thing I can figure is that she somehow transferred them to me. She never kissed me on the lips though, which is even odder.

Anyway, I've been living with these things since then and am now 21. I usually go years between outbreaks but recently they've been coming very frequently and my lip is scarring and (I SWEAR) losing sensation.

I am so incredibly frustrated I don't know where to turn.

I feel like my life is a wreck because of these stupid sores.

I feel like I am not normal.

I feel like a freak.

Hi. Rest assured you are in good company, and you're not the only one who believes everyone gets them.

Is it possible, given your age, that you've begun experimenting with lifestyles which may harm your immune system? Have you been drinking a lot? Eating crap you shouldn't? Under a lot of stress? Otherwise compromising your immune system? It's really your immune system that keeps outbreaks at bay, and if you've some how changed what you do to make it less effective, it may explain why you are seeing more outbreaks. It's also possible your body is going through hormonal changes that have brought this out.

It does sound like your mom gave it to you. She could have done something as innocent as used her spit to wipe gunk off your face while having an outbreak in order to pass it on. Don't be too hard on her! :)

Try a Lysine supplement for cold sores

      I read an article about arganine vs lysine. The tests they get this info off were done in a test tube and not on humans. There was also another study done on mice with herpes. Mice die from herpes and when they gave the group of mice higher arganine than the 2nd group, it actually kept them alive longer than the group not given it. I was taking lysine until recently and I've noticed no difference and I eat a vegan diet which is higher in arganine. The only thing lysine seems to do is stop the itchy tingling feeling I get but then again that might be in my head like the placebo effect.

      When I had my first and second outbreak of genital hsv1, I had a weird thing happen with my throat.  The first time which was 2 days before the sores appeared, I woke up in the night unable to breath because my throat felt like it had closed up. The second time it happened it was the same thing but much milder.

      Maybe try black seed oil 1 t? Maybe a sauna or there is a group that will help you build an infared tent. Really great for acne and it will disappear while doing it.  Hormone inbalance?
