Cold Sore Machine at Lloyds Pharmacy for £13.49 with code "FREE40"(thanks to choc1969)

Found 25th Apr 2012
My cold sore machine which I have had for the last five years recently broke on me. This has been a godsend for me since I got it so when it gave up I started to search for another one.

My wife took my son to the docs today and when in Lloyds Pharmacy saw they had an offer on for these. However, they were £10 more expensive in the shops but still a fairly good price. Decided to check it online because the other half sometimes gets it wrong and the price online was even better!

If you get cold sores and like me, feel like your looking like the elephant man I would absolutely 100% recommend them. They don't stop mine but when they appear they only last about half as long and they instantly take 95% of the pain away.

Works really well for me. A few of my friends got one after me and they also swear by them. Should just say that in some places you can get them on prescription. A friend of mine in Bristol was able to but my PCT in Bath refused.

was acyclovir no good for treating the cold sores?
Don't forget 6.06% TCB
I started taking large doses of vit D ..sunshine vitamin ..

I don't seem to get many skin problems now ..I used to get a lot of cold sores.
I find the best thing for my horrid reaccuring cold sores is Blistex lip cream at around £2.70, but hot from me, as anything that gets rid of them quickly gets my vote:):)

i use aftershave when i feel the tingle, and somethimes they don't blister at all
hubby has one of these and swear by it, and i can for him! As soon as he gets a tingle he uses this 3-4 times a day and it brings it out and within 2 days its gone! Using aciclovir takes over a week to heal.

its also good for spots too when you feel a painful one coming it brings it out quicker.

Acyclovir does not work with me. In fact I end up getting more. It ends up spreading them rather than reducing them.
Thanks, just ordered. Hope it works for me
Don't need a machine, I seem to get them quite naturally... (_;)
cold sores related to the Herpes virus...nice advert for future conquests on here.
Worth the money, especially as zovirax is about 6 quid a throw.
you can get zovirax from lloyds free on minor ailments list in scotland
op how long do they last when using this machine
coldsore? dude, you got herpes!
Never heard of one of these... Might get one have some heat
Zovarax is the best...but going to give this bad boy a go! Cheers

Is minor ailments available for adults in scotland? Get it for my kids but never heard about adults. Do you just register at your chemist then show them your coldsore? Thanks
Cold sore is just the chicks way of saying herpes
6% quidco available. Every little herps
Use urine on them, cheap, freely available and works.oO
And before you start on me, do a bit of research (_;)
I have found that to stop them in their tracks, I apply Liquorice & Melissa Lip Gel every night before I go to sleep, or as soon as I feel the tingle, and they don't even come. Its brilliant stuff - I used to have cold sores every 2 weeks or so, and now I get maybe one a year!

Just a LED and a battery in a box?
I made the mistake of rubbing a cold sore on my lip and then my left eye not long after. 3 days later I got a cold sore under my eyelid. Painful? Hell yes. If I'm run-down it comes back and I have to have a special Zovirax like cream for eyes and eye-drops (can't remember the name) but these dilate the pupil making focusing on anything virtually impossible.

Kids, if you've got a cold sore make sure you wash your hands regularly. I wouldn't wish the discomfort on anyone.

Shouldn't you 2 be at school??? or is it IT classes this morning:p
Guys I used to suffer lots from cold sores...and they used to appear wheb I drank orange juice or get stressed. I used to have then constantly.
So what I done was everytime I got oneI used to drink a litre of orange juice a day until they died...then stop drinking it until the next one appeared. Now I hardly get them...maybe once a year compared to once/twice a month before!
If anyone can link orange juice to cold sores...try this. I also used to take L-lysine in large doses and it seemed to help stem the growth and spread of them. Hope this helps someone
kids get coldsores from their parents kissing them or from their mother's vagina as they come out ? lol
Not sure if it will work but at this price I took the plunge! Thanks
either way if we just destroy all humans with this we can eradicate this blight from existence.
When did it become normal to tell people nonchalantly that you have HERPES?

Why does cold sore happen?



Cold sores are the result of the Herpes Simplex virus, which everyone has. They can form a blister (cold sore) because of a trigger - being run down due to an illness (cold or 'flu, etc.), fatigue, even a women's menstrual cycle. Some people are more prone than others.

Many chain budget stores that sell toiletries, stock much cheaper generic versions with exactly the same active ingredient as Zovirax for less than £2 a tube.
