I have been getting cold sore after cold sore for the last 2 months. The problem is that I do not get them on my lips - I get them on my FACE!! On my cheeks, chin and near my mouth, just not on it. I have been getting them since childhood and have had them cultured several times so I know it is herpes simplex A. They are PAINFUL and ugly!!! When not preggers, I take Valtrex and that greatly helps with shortening the length of infection and recurrence.
Alas, I do not want to take the Valtrex now with the pregnancy. I have been taking lysine regularly. Anyone have any other ideas? Not sure what else to do. Thanks!
