    I have some bad news for you.... you have herpes.



    (serious)

    i used to suffer terribly til a friend gave me an aloe vera plant and told me to snap off a leaf everytime i felt one tinglin and rub the aloe juice on it,sure enough it works i never get a coldsore now as soon as i feel that tingle on goes the aloe

    no there's different types of herpes.. a and b or type 1 and 2, something like that... cold sores arent the same herpes as genital herpes.

    what u have is herpes simplex really it very common

    brill thanx deb8z will try this instead of perfume me thinks
    do you just dab it on?

    When you go to the chemist ask for a generic version of zovirax, will be loads cheaper.

    I hate coldsores, I must be about due one, not had one for ages!

    I need a bit of relief:whistling:

    Generic name for Zovirax is acyclovir

    (don't ask how it's pronounced!!)

    I'm not that way inclined, thank-you very much:lol:

    i use to get coldsores if i was either stressed or my body was run down after doing alot of night shifts so i would have a few days off after them.I swear by zovirax but i found the secret was put it on as soon as you feel the tingle not wait for the sore to form hope this helps

    Did you use to wear the crash helmet as well?:whistling:

    Once the cold sore has developed, waste of time using Acyclovir products. It only works in the early stages, so good idea to keep some in -

    Tea tree oil cannot treat nits / head lice. Also it cannot prevent you getting head lice

    Herpes simplex is a viral infection and you will be never free from it , theres no cure, I have it also since I was a baby and it flares up every so often. Also don't share your towels with any other family members as it is contagious!
