Cold sore lips remedy

Common Questions and Answers about Cold sore lips remedy


Avatar m tn I'm in good health, eat right, and exercise daily. First cold sore was back in 1986 after I got a severe sunburn on lips. Would obviously prefer not to have the virus but it's really not been a big deal. However, I've had a lot of fatigue over the last 30+ years and was wondering if the immune overload keeping the virus at bay might have been dragging me down all this time. The fatigue and feeling bad a lot of the time has been a big downer in my life and cost me personally/professionally.
Avatar n tn Hi, About 2 months ago I noticed a part of my upper lip was tingly, I suspected it was a cold sore to used zovirax on it. The next day no cold sore appeared but that area looked red and irritated and was a bit dry. I continued using carmex lip balm to calm it down but it didn't do anything, it remained dry and chapped and felt tight. It has progressively got worse, its not as red anymore but my lips (both upper and lower) now feel tight and dry. I apply lip balm throughout the day and at night.
Avatar n tn If you experience very frequent bouts, your doctor may prescribe an antiviral medication as a cold sore treatment or to prevent cold sores. It may help if you avoid conditions that stress your body, such as getting a cold or not getting enough sleep or staying in the sun for long periods of time without applying sunblock. It is important to apply sunblock to your lips and face before prolonged exposure to the sun to help prevent cold sores. Take care and regards.
Avatar m tn Two weeks ago I noticed a clear bump on my top lip.I've never had a cold sore/fever blister in my life but I asked around and they told me it was a cold sore. So I slapped some Abreva on it and prayed. Well I guess the abreva aggravated it and it spread covering my lips. I went to my health center at school and they told me it was Warts and suggested to see a family doctor(?). I read to treat it with ACV but it burns and dries it out causing ulceration. My lips are now very dry but no scabbing.
Avatar n tn Is it herpes? what could it be? I'm really worried and paranoid. I don't have any cold sore and you can't see the bumps, I just feel them. my mom says the same thing is going on with her lips from them being chapped, but I'm not sure if that is the issue. Can you please help me?
Avatar m tn Also, I'm noticing other marks, blotchy almost cold sore looking on my lower lips...I've never had cold sores so unless I picked something else up its gotta be the meds. I take extremely excellent care of my mouth. I had cancer 12 years ago so know the importance. The inside of my mouth is fine. Early on I started using Biotene which is awesome and cured my mouth sores. For the lips, I'm currently using Super Lysine Cold Sore Ointment (its all natural and has tea tree and zinc oxide).
Avatar m tn The doctors did some bloodwork to check my vitamin levels which all came back fine and instructed me to try an OTC cream like Abreva, as they thought it might be a cold sore (which I never had in the past either). Two weeks later, I scheduled a follow up appointment, as the redness and severe chapping was still there. The second time, they prescribed an Acylovir tablet and Zovirax cream for oral herpes. All this seemed to do was irritate my entire mouth.
Avatar n tn so i'm thinking it is bacterial infection rather than a cold sore. so anybody please help me and tell me if it is a bacterial infection and what i can do to make my lips back to normal. i highly appreciate it. thanks.
Avatar n tn She is now 15, but has had this problem since she was 8. It started from chapped lips when we lived in Illinois.(Cold weather and severe winters) And she soon started licking around her lips causing the pigmentation. We are from India but live here in Arizona. She feels very insecure about it and it looks like a mustache. We have taken her to several doctors and dermatologists with no positive results. Let me know your daughter's current condition and if you can help somehow.
Avatar f tn The area around her lips has turnedd dark brown, I applied neosporin and later cold sore treatment thinking that is what is was. A week has passed and the white dryness has disappeared but the dark discoloration has not. My daughter is hispanic and already has a light tan color but I am concerned the dark patch around her mouth will not go away. Any other medications I should be using? Do you think the discoloration is permanent?
Avatar n tn It felt like the early onset of a cold sore or eczema/irritation, but I cant remember the last time I've had one, or if I've ever had one (cold sore). I do have a history of eczema, and I am sexually active, so I am not sure what to attribute to this phenomena. Today is Sun. July 16th and I am still experiencing this but it isnt as bad as on tuesday.
Avatar n tn I have never had a cold sore but but its not in the gum of the bottom of the lip just the rim that separates the outer skin and the inner part of the lip, basically where the lips close- that line. Has anyone experienced this, im soo worried. he said he was tested and I even looked at the papers he received (this was before I kissed him). But either way, I am really really worried.
408312 tn?1202062473 This would last for about a week and was very painful. The only remedy was to slather my lips with petroleum jelly all day until the condition subsided. A friend of mine who suffers from cold sores suggested Lysine, which is an amino acid. You can buy it at Whole Foods. After 1 day of taking Lysine capsules, my lips felt substantially better. The swelling, cracking, and blisters all subsided. I will definitely be taking this if I have future episodes.
Avatar n tn They aren't cold sores (I've had cold sores and these aren't it). They are not itchy or painful. They didn't go through the cold sore stages. If I pop the blisters, my lips taste sour and the blisters form again. Since it's only on my upper lip I think it's not my lip balm, especially since I've used that brand before. I don't think I ate anything unusual the day they appeared (Sunday). I ate chinese food (tofu, pork), bran muffins (with apple sauce).
Avatar n tn About a week ago i noticed a patch of non-itchy fine bumps on the right side of my neck. Shortly after i got small itchy bumps on my lips, i thought i was getting a cold sore because i have had a few outbreaks before. i apply acyclovir cream and cymex on it but these did not help much.
Avatar n tn i get the same symptoms and sore on my lips after eating anything with nuts in it. i have ate nuts all my life and just this past year is when it started. Please help me !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Avatar n tn Although not that it burst it looks more like an open sore lesion with a hardish lump right beneath. Also I think I may have cold and flu like symptoms while this happened. Someone please right back and tell how the abscess/boil looked after it oozed out the pus and blood and if you had any flu like or muscle aches during the ordeal?
Avatar m tn I don't understand if there is a technical diference between fever blisters and cold sores, but it doesn't appear that a cold-sore remedy will work. What can I take to get rid of this and get my face back? thank you.
Avatar n tn i found these two really read painful bumps on my vagina it cant be from shaving because i dont shave the lips or just outside of them!!! im scared!! it hurts really really really really bad! but i havent been sexually active in three months! wouldnt it have shown up earlier if it were genital herpes or warts??? it isnt crusty or anything, and today is my first day noticing it! could it be from masturbating??? help!
1554262 tn?1374243601 I get myself to cold water as fast as I can and drink it quickly. Almost as fast as the pain arrived…it goes away. The pain is severe and the rush to find cold water is in panic mode to be sure. I even had to get a cup out of the trash once since there were none around during an attack! I don’t think it’s a heart issue but I just don’t know. I do drink coffee in the mornings, don’t exercise much as I should, but I don’t know if that’s it.
Avatar n tn The problem with me is worse though. He gets cold sores on his lips sometimes.. Well, I have 3 small bumps on different parts of my vagina, somewhere in between painful and itchy. Thing that ***** most? I have a UTI so it burns like fu*k when I pee, plus if the pee touches any of the bumps it burns even more. I ahve no idea what the bumps are, but I'm hoping to go to a doctor ASAP. I'm only 27. So the only reason I haven't gone yet is because I'm embarrassed to tell my mom.
Avatar m tn a sore throat, swollen lymph node, ear pain, mild eye redness, and even swollen gums and scalp, but sinuses are clear and no cough. So I'm pretty sure it's just normal inflammation from the virus, although it's a bit weird. Whenever I have a gum infection the same thing happens so maybe the virus is confined locally vs. spreading throughout the whole body.
Avatar n tn One should avoi licking their lips as saliva contains the enzyme amylase, which can damage the already compromised lip tissue. Honey can be used on the lips as a natural remedy. Cheilitis is associated with many conditions from Vitamin B12 deficiency, iron deficiency anemia - as in your case, be a symptom of allergies.can also be caused by taking the (retinoid) drug Isotretinoin (brand name Roaccutane).
Avatar n tn Just before finding this thread I found another post elsewhere that suggested if you have ever had a cold sore/fever blister (and that other not so pretty word ;>) and rubbed your under eye at any time, that it could be connected. Her doctor prescribed/recommended allergy eye drops. Thought I'd throw this out there, I love that there are so many remedies and suggestions here. Thank you all! Cheers!
Avatar n tn A few days ago I noticed a sore, reddish swollen lump on my left inner thigh, right along my bikini line. It has since gotten larger (about the size of a nickel, and more elongated now). It only feels sore if I press on it or rub against it. It seems like a soft lump that moves around with the skin. Last night I applied a warm washcloth to it for about 30 minutes, which made it feel better. Could this be a swollen lymph node, or maybe an ingrown hair?
Avatar n tn fever abdominal pain chest pain shortness of breath blood in urine hair falling out fatigue muscle pain and weakness dizziness poor memory headaches poor circulation in fingers and toes tingling in extremities diarrhea bloating nausea weight loss abdominal pain blurred vision depression palpitations raynauds (where fingers turn white when cold) intollerance to cold sore throat name a few Keep in mind that fibromyalgia, CFS, MS and lymes disease also have similar symptoms.
Avatar n tn For the last few weeks I have been suffering from incredibly sensitive eyes/eyelids which are red, dry and sore, similar to sunburn. I initially thought it was because of some cheap make-up remover wipes that I used to take off my mascara. Although I had been using them for a while, they soon started to sting and burn the area around my eyes whenever I used them. The use of any eye make-up other than mascara would result in a stinging sensation, which varied in terms of severity.
242516 tn?1368227505 The flu has passed epidemic rates in much of the country, and if you don't have a cold, I'm sure you have a friend who has the sniffles, fever, chills, aches and pains of a viral upper respiratory infection. This is different from a bacterial infection such as sinusitis, bronchitis, or pneumonia. A viral infection doesn't improve with antibiotics as these infections do. A virus hijacks your own body's healthy cells and uses it to reproduce and spread.
