Are cold sores normal?

A: cold sores are normal if you are nasty cold sores are a strain of Herpes. They are normal to those that get them. Stress triggers them, and you should avoid kissing/sharing cups etc. and refrain from sexual contact with your mouth when you have one cause they are easy to transfer to others. They''re ''normal'' in the sense that most people will have them once or twice in their life; more often if they''re run-down; and they are a variety of shingles/herpes and therefore infectious, which means that they can infect your partner (hence, don''t kiss). By the way, you don''t have to do anything sexual to acquire them (I mentioned that because I used the h- word). The best cure is an ointment...


what home remedy can be used for a cold sore?

A: Honey works the best. Lots of Lysine, a vitamin/nutrient from a health food store. Chainsaw!!!!! use ice to take down the light swelling and peroxide to take away the whole thing. works great and helps it go away You''re going to think it''s gross, but it worked for me. I haven''t had one since. Put your ear wax on it when you feel it coming up. It will go away. My nephew got them all the time. Tried every medication out there. He tried the ear wax and hasn''t had one since. Carmex works the best even at the first feeling of a little tingle. It has camphor in it which helps the healing and is also wonderfull for regular chapped lips. It soaks in your lips and doesn''t just coat like other chapped lip sticks. Most stores sell it for about $1. Try looking at the checkout lines for it. Hope...


Why do people get cold-sores on their lips and mouth predominantly?

A: if you get them that means you have herpes herpes. quarantine the infected and make fun of them every chance you get Most likely...Stress!

It is always there in the nerve near the mouth and when you immune system is not working efficiently, it comes out in the form of cold sores. Don''t kiss anyone when you have a cold sore.

cold sore ...?

A: Herpes Simplex. Remains dormant in everyone. The fact that you have a sore festering on your lip could mean you have been dealing with a lot of stressful issues lately.

A daily dose of Lysine 500mg helps keep it dormant. I doubt you caught something from a friend. Just use good hand washing technique and you shouldn''t have problem with it spreading any further on your face/lips. You can catch herpes simplex one ( the kind on your mouth) even from sharing a coke can with someone. Don''t feel bad though, although it stinks, it''s not as severe as herpes in other areas. Many...


Can cold sore spread into your private??

A: Yes it''s true... if a person has Herpes (simplex 1, cold sores around mouth), and they perform oral sex on a person who doesn''t have an STD, it can actually give them an STD (genital herpes, simplex 2, blisters on the genitals). So unless you perform oral sex on somebody, I would recommend using protection. And you can''t really give it to yourself, so don''t worry. that is gential herpe. but your partner has to pass it on to you . it is an std Nopers you are in the clear! Different type of herpes. the cold cores that are in your mouth, can not spread onto your private area, although if you are sexual active and the person you are having sex with has something.. such as gen herpes or gen warts.. that can be
