I started getting one blister on the lower lip, right side, last Sunday. I got a second one, closer to the center of my bottom lip (as opposed to the middle one? :Q), on Wednesday or so. Now I'm getting one (just in the last twelve hours or so) right in the middle of my bottom lip.

*sigh* Damn viruses.

Cheers!

if you can feel the cold sore forming.. you know, that itching sensation before it actually forms? anyways, if you rub some bleach on it before it forms it usually prevents it from forming... and yes, they do suck...

I know that it's a virus, what I meant is that I got the disease from my mother, it's been in the family for a few generations. I apologize for the incorrect usage of the word.

Cheers!

I didn't know about that. I should try it.

:eek: At least she's not pregnant.

Oh, and I never knew this, but if I ever perform oral sex, I run the risk of infecting that woman.

Dammit.

Cheers!

There is a new lotion that helps cure them in like a 1/4 of the regular time, Aleve, i think thats what it is called. like $17 for a small 1/2 ounce tube. :)
But it works like a champ, kills the tingling and the itching sensation!

Denavir aka penciclovir cream 1%. True antiviral prescription that works well. Topical or pills.

My doctor recommended taking vitamin b-2... didn't say why. I just took that and some random Chinese herbs and it went away in a day.
