I have gotten cold sores since i was like two. My father got them so im assuming i got them from him. I get them very very rarely but when i do i hate. Theres like no relief and they take a week to heal.

 

Do any of you get them? How do you treat them? does your kids get them?

I don't get them but DH does he hates them. He's tried abreva & herpacin & said for him they're really not worth the money they help him heal but only a little faster than he normally would.

I do. Keep it hydrated with carmex or blister and they heal faster. Plus there are numbing lip balms to take away the pain. If it cracks open it has to start all over and takes longer to heal and can spread.

I think I got it from my Dad as well, but mine are inside of my mouth and I don't think they are called the same thing and I only get them when I accidently bite myself or my son busts my lip with his big head haha
