Yep, I know the feeling, as a child I suffered badly with cold sores maybe 3 or 4 at a time, although I would pick them and probably spead the virus.

It would seem that that is exactly the problem and there is no cure, the virus (herpes) lives within our glands and can erupt at any time (particularly at time of stress when or when our immune system is under attack).

Of course Zorvirax was not available then, but now I have a tube or pump dispenser in the house all the time, although they seem more prevalent during the colder months. In fact I brought a pump container just yesterday, it is available and all good chemists and even some supermarkets stock it, it cost £6.95 and the tube is £4.95 (I think) or there about. I always go the the large option. My partner has a cold sore on his face which has been getting worse for the last day or so (couldn’t find the Zovirax) so had to purchase another) however it has relieved the soreness already and will be gone by tomorrow.

If you delete the other paragraphs that are repeated it would be better, as it has alot of detail in it even without the repeated parapgraphs!!! (lol) :oD

Great op, full of detail. I luckily (touch wood) have never had a cold sore. :oD

Nice op, but one paragraph has been repeated three times. As far as i can tell, it is word for word as well. :)

Zovirax is an antiviral for use on the skin. It is used to treat cold sores, a viral ... more

infection occurring on the lips.  When treatment
is started at the first sign (tingle) of a cold
sore, it prevents the cold sore from appearing. It
can also limit the severity of cold sores and
speed up the healing process.  What are cold
sores?  Cold sores are a very common illness
caused by the Herpes Simplex virus (HSV).  Cold
sores usually occur on or around the lip, or nose.
Unless there is a secondary infection, cold sores
usually clear up within 10 days, and do not leave
a scar.  The virus remains in the body and cold
sores may recur if the person is stressed, tired,
feverish or injured. Exposure to sun or wind can
also trigger the cold sores. Cold sores are
contagious, especially by direct contact, eg.
Kissing. Cold sores are usually preceded by a
feeling of tingling, burning, itching, or numbness
in the spot where the cold sore is developing. As
the cold sore becomes visible, small red spots and
fluid blisters appear. There usually merge
together into what looks like one sore.  What are
the symptoms?  The primary infection can progress
in different ways. Some people only have very mild
symptoms or none at all. The first outbreak starts
one to three weeks after the virus has been
contracted. It subsides spontaneously within a few
weeks. Later, if HSV is reactivated, the blisters
will return  The first symptom of an outbreak is
an unpleasant tingling feeling in the skin. After
a short while, a number of fluid-filled blisters
appear  The sores become covered by scabs which
typically fall off after eight to ten days. The
virus can spread until the sores are completely
covered by scabs.  Around 20 per cent of the
people with HSV antibodies have recurrent attacks
of cold sores throughout their lives.  In
children, the virus can infect the mouth and
throat (gingivostomatitis herpetica acuta). The
infection may be accompanied by a fever and
general aches and pains.
