After I had my DD (2 years ago)..I started getting cold sores way more frequently then I did before I had her..before getting pregnant I had only had a total of 3 since i was a kid....now I get them every couple of months and its sooo frustrating.. I just feel like every since I got pregnant my immune system has crapped out on me!! I also breastfed for a full year....the only time I didnt get a cold sore was when the doctor put me on paxil for like 5 months because I was having some anxiety...after I stopped taking it I started getting them again and even more frequently..All of the medical websites say you the outbreaks become less frequent with time..that has not been the case for me!
and please dont explain to me that its caused by the Herpes Virus (HSV-1) and all that because I already KNOW ..ive had them long enough that ive done PLENTY of research..im not asking what causes them im asking why they are happening more often
