Any chance of letting us know who your ex girlfriends were?

\just be careful of the use by date

use date by sometime in 2010

Voted hot never used these, but cant deny its a great price. Would give them a go if I could find them for that price!

Be careful what you buy, the Compeed packs they had in the Leeds Poundland were Foot Blister patches, not coldsore ones (although there's a great big picture of a foot on the pack so I doubt you'll mix them up)

Sorry but this quote made me :-D

the poundland has just open in perth will have to go have a look for them always get a coldsore inn the winter hot

I tried some of these which I received free through the post. Didn't work for me!

In fact, because they were supposed to be invisible but were still quite clearly visible, I just got lots of funny looks. They kept unpeeling too which looked slightly like my lip was peeling off, in an anti-social sort of leprosy stylie.

Might get you your own seat on the bus though. :thumbsup:

Can't say I find anything actually works for cold sores....

I generally get a cold sored with the change of seasons, predomininantly around October but sometimes with the onset of summer.

My GF (who is s nurse) swears by Abreva - supposedly if you use it when a cold sore tingles then it won't break out.

Well this year I did my own test and used Abreva several times a day at the start of October BEFORE there was any sign of a cold sore appearing well guess what - I still got a cold sore even applying the medication to my lips without a cold sore :x

As far as I'm concerned all of this stuff is snake oil (including those equally useless UV light treatments which also don't work...:whistling:

There was a study done in the Daily Mail (I believe?) that tried all of the different methods and all they did (at best) was reduce the healing time of the cold sore by 1 day......

I suppose a quid is a good price to make you feel better about your cold sore though...:p

Add to mental list of things that don;t actually work:

Cold sore medication/treatments
Hayfever medication/treatments

Any other additions from personal experience?

That's quite interesting, most cold sore treatments are generic variations and have an anti viral ingredient called Aciclovir as their main ingredient where as Abreva has something called Docosanol.

Hi, I used to get them at least once a month, but I have a zinc tablet every day (I am also a veggie) and it has worked for me. Have not had one cold sore since, been 4months now. :thumbsup:

I suppose you could always eat a banana a day as well for a natural source of zinc too?

I'm assuming you get cold sores too?

Have you found anything that actually stops them?

I used to get them regularly about once a year or so but ever since I got viral meninigitis about 10 years ago and had anti-viral medicine (Aciclovir I think) fed on a drip they seem to have almost stopped.

You could say that some good came from having meningitis but on the other hand the anti-viral drip did also wipe out my natural defences against colds and stuff, so I got quite a few cold infections for quite a while.

Well that's a bit an extreme case I suppose!

I got cold sores after lending a mate my lipsalve years ago :oops:

I suppose you could always try the glass of orange juice a day (Vitamin C) method to help avoid colds etc if your system has been compromised with the drip?

I got a couple of these in chatham poundland today as my son has a coldsore that we have tried everything on so got to be worth a go.

These things are only supposed to be effective when applied during the tingling stage.
