People take meds for cold sores?
I'm at the tail end of one. (It appeared last Saturday.) The only thing I use for them are Compeed plasters, which I don't think makes the cold sore go away one whit faster, but covers it up and reduces the risk of infection. If those weren't available though, then I wouldn't take anything: would just let it run its course.
Dx Crohn's in summer of 2000. (Yay )
Tried and failed: 5-ASAs, Azathioprine, 6MP, Remicade, Methotrexate, Humira.
Diet didn't make any difference either.
Had surgery 2/13 - subtotal colectomy with end ileostomy. Currently on no meds and in remission. Also prone to depression and anxiety. Ask me anything >_>
