I really appreciate the replies everyone. I have replied to you all in this. I doubt you will make it through it all but whatever. You have all helped me a bit. This site has always had so many great people on it. It is nice that people have a place to come for stuff like this.
Subzeromambo -These are 100% cold sores. herpes on my lips. I have gotten them and confirmed when I was about
8 year old. I am 30 now. In the last 3 years they have really been a problem and only seem to be more frequent the older I get.
notsosicklygirl -I do have the prescript
ion cream ZOVIRAX aka Acyclovir. I find if I put this when it starts it usually still comes through or it pops up on another part of my lip which sucks, I know some people only get one in the same spot for each outbreak. It helps keep it a lot more minimal and scabs over much faster so it never gets all ***** and oozy like they used to without the cream. BUT the overal healing time is not improved by the cream, its about
the same if I dont use the cream. Only like I mention they dont get as ooozy so you have a more scab like sore for the duration. I 100% need to try some sort of pills that are daily at this point. Something that is always in me at all times. Thats my only hope at this point. Im sorry you too hav a lot of baggage. It isnt nice I know and I really apprecaited your reply and optimism.
SR5599. Right there thats all I need to hear. You took the pills.I'm taking some pills. Thats that for me. I cant find much of this online, especially any specific adverse reactions with immunosurpressants other than they all say for people with healthy immune sytems with the exception of HIV patients for some reason. I wanna be optimistic but they all also say they dont know the efficiency of the pills with people on immunosurp. Like are you kidding me you havnt doe a study to see.. seriously!
Anyway.....My GP will prescribe this for me im hoping. I have gone to him for 14 years now and he is awesome. Usually when I cant get an appointment for a month he will call me within 48 hours if I request it. I'm a bit crazy too so I get pretty jumpy about
my emotions he knows this and knows I dont abuse him calling me I might have done that once every 3 years over the last 9 years. I'd do it now BUT he is on vacation not in the office for a month.
darn I dont know you and its the internet but you SR5599 you say you took em im trusting you. 1 year. I'll tell my doc I have a friend who did it haha with the acycolvir PILLS. In the end im gettin pills I will get someone else on them and take them from them if I have to. I just got pretty worked up about
this today for good reasons. Also what if they dont help im pretty worried at this point especially if this never gets better even with pills. I could handle 1 2 of these a year. BUT I cant blame anyone when im spending almost half of every month risking infection. I dont wanna do that to anyone. They dont deserve that. I know that. I dont mess around though with infecting people at the first sign right until a few days after its been totally clear. I avoid all contact. What happens though if one is kinda there or some crap and I dont notice you know. NOT GOOD. You can get these bad boys downstairs... not good at all!!!! I dont have any there ever so thats good but I cant imagine doing that to someone by mistake. I couldnt live with myself.
God help us all, please, already.
