I get coldsores on my mouth sometimes. Not very often thank goodness. My grangma gave them to me when I was in my late teens or something. I take l-lysne a lot to stop from getting them, and luckily this also reduces my FM pain. If I cant afford zorivax or whatever its called I just ignore it. They take the same time to heal.
Everytime I use lipstick, new from the shop, unopened. I get a coldsore. Bummer.
I dont like the feeling of slimy stuff on my lips so I dont use lip balm. Do you use lip balm?
At one stage both my children constantly were getting sore dry lips. I couldnt work it out. My mother was secretly addicting them to lip balm!!! I explained about it to her and she respecte dmy wishes, and they no longer get dry lips. *phew*. Talk about starting them young!
