  • cold sores.

    are cold sores and fever blisters the same thing? both are a herpes virus, i think...
    but are they the same thing?

    Re: cold sores.

    Stella..........Yes, the terms "cold sores" and "fever blisters" can be used interchangeably.

    I have "suffered" with them for years and years since childhood! Not so much as I'm older, but I do still get them.

      I haven't had one in about 4 yrs, ever since I added one L-lysine tablet to the handful of pills I take daily.

        Re: cold sores.

        I just had one last weekend. I wrote a check to the IRS and within an hour I had a cold sore, my face broke out in zits, and my period started. That was a real suckfest.

            Any one tried chewable tablets of Zinc??? haven't had in many years, but we all remember that funny tingling on the corner of our mouths! If you can get ahead of it, Zinc'll knock it out in 4 days! Just a thought, Laura

              my DD got her first fever blister on her lip at 3 months. and every christmas and easter until she learned there wasn't a santa that it was us, and she had an insight on what she was getting.

              but scratch all of that.
              the issue has been addressed, she went to the doctor, and it's not a cold sore, it's shingles.

              great.


              sorry about the IRS check tea that's awful

                  I recently had one, and tried the lysine tablets and they work. It only lasted about 3 days.

                    I get them all the time. Take Valtrax the minute I feel the tingling and then I put Abreve on it it's the only FDA approved to clear it up faster. I really does work kinda pricie tho. Ice also helps with the swelling.. Hope you feel better soon!!!!!!!!!

                      Lysine works for me also. I don't take them everyday (maybe I should). I just start taking a massive dose when I feel one. SOmetimes it never even shows up! At the least significantly decreases the severity.
