  • "Fever blisters/cold sores" on or around the mouth are Herpes Simplex Virus. Since you have a separate infection, it is causing you to break out around your mouth. You've never had these before?

  • yea it is painful. i gather now that it is nearly over and i can eat more that yea i had two infections like Bridget said. and burns probably because i tend to eat fast so i can run back to be apart of my kids' meal. -make sure my 3 year old eats and watch over my 4 month old, clean, etc.. kind of stupid and very painful when coupled with everything else going on. finally everything is clearing up though.

    the pain was horrible. first i felt just pain then i felt like my milk was drying up and there was stabbing pain. i couldnt/did not want to eat because food tasted like puss.-people ask how i know that that tastes like- it was the only other time i had a cold sore break out and it was horrific- welcome =). i shook and cried and laid in a bath tub for like an hour. to weak to drive i decided to try to sweat it out. i put on my robe/covered up with my thick blankets/took pain meds/passed the bleep out. it worked for the time
