Anyone here get the herpes???

On their lip i mean? I've been getting a couple cold sores a year under the nose/on the upper lip since I was a little kid. They f'n suck. Anyone know of an effective med out there? (try to keep the bashing to a minimum!)

I used to get a sore on my lip after I was in strong winds or riding my bike fast down hills. It was some sort of herpes but I haven't had it in a while. Hurt like a MFer.

Re: Anyone here get the herpes???

I get fever blisters, have always. It's hereditary.

My dr prescribed Valtrex. I take a pill as soon as i feel one coming on and the pill keeps it from coming.

Valtrex Rx and a sterilized needle. I pop them and it prevents the blister from becoming enormous. It's disgusting and hurts like hell but it's the only way. I've had them since I was a kid, too.

there's a generic Valacyclovir or something. it's cheaper for sure. if you don't want to use the pill, you can also buy the Zovirax cream.

i used to get them occasionally. but then i started to use vaseline lip therapy (basically petroleum jelly) all the time to keep my lips moist. if i feel a tiny bump (maybe just 1mm) on my lips, i'll rub it until it's gone, and keep my lips very moist. it usually goes away in a day or less, and it doesn't puff up like a cold sore. it's been many years since i've had a cold sore using this method.

you should probably throw away the tube if you get cold sore though as the virus is probably on there now.

note that the petroleum jelly doesn't really treat it, but at least for me, i've found it to help avoid it.

i won't quote Dr Mabuse's picture, but herpes can spread, if you have a cold sore and touch your lips, then touch your eyes, then you may end up looking like that. you should always wash your hands with soap after touching your lips or anywhere else infected with the herpes virus.
