    I get a needle, heat it over the stove for a bit, then pop it. Then I get a q-tip, dip it in isopropyl alcohol and hold it against the sore for a while. Then cover with toothpaste. Also take 2 l-lysine pills a day.
    You probably shouldn't do that though. Enjoy your herpes

      I must have got it from a relative or something. Fucking Europeans and their double smooches.

      I used to pop the blisters with a sterilized needle too. They say you're not supposed to do that cause the fluid that comes out is turbo contagious and can make you break out everywhere it might touch but I always took the risk. It turned an outbreak that would take a few weeks to crust over and heal to a 4 or 5 day affair. I'm older now and haven't had any outbreak in years.

      Buy this immediately OP. It dries the sore out and gets rid of it, most medicines keep it wet to let it naturally go away but that’s retarded. Also take L-Lysine pills

      I've tried everything in the book, the only thing that gets rid of them quickly is taking a warm shower, using tissue to scrape away the soft scab, then applying abreva every few hours (I use the CVS generic version).

      [...]
      over 75% of people who have it got it from non-sexual things, mostly as a child from kissing or drinking after their parents. 2 out of every 3 people I know have the shit, which makes me paranoid about how easy it is to catch, but they don't seem to be embarassed, I guess because it's so common.

      In my Biomed undergrad degree I was in class and the Lecturer had this weird thing where she would pick a random person in the class and get them to stand up the front and give a 5 minute impromptu speech about a biomed topic we had covered in the semester so far.

      We had previously covered STDs and she cruelly picked me because I looked like the biggest incel in the class which was mainly comprised of women, only I remembered the Herpes stuff because I went fully down the rabbithole about statistics and transmission of the virus, different presentations and signs and symptoms because I was terrified of getting it.

      I basically rattled off a tonne of information in 2 minutes and spent the next 3 minutes in this autistic hate-filled rant about how the push to normalise HSV1 or even HSV2 was abhorrent and contrary to public health and progress in medicine, that degenerate weeping-sored crusted-lipped, disease-riddled subhumans should be treated like Lepers, that Herpes was as repulsive as AIDS and anyone with HSV should cast out of society into plague colonies and given a tattoo saying that they're HSV1 Positive and forced like sex offenders to declare that they have HSV1, that knowingly transmitting the virus should incur jail time and incur civil liability for litigation, and that it should be a justifiable defence for homicide.

      I got so into it I could feel spittle flying from my mouth as I enunciated my points about and she ended up cutting me off as I said "I will personally put every single person with Herpes into a gas chamber and press the button myself"

      I also got 98% for that subject

        something like 2/3 of the population of planet earth has one of the HSV viruses. Nobody assumes you got it sexually. Most of us got it as kids just like chicken pox (before they invented a vaccine)

          This is a real fucking issue, its not 2/3rd of the population its probably closer to 1/4th, but parents will kiss their babies or let them eat their food and the babies with their shit immune system break out in blisters EVERYWHERE. After that they can break out in blisters theoretically anywhere on there body. It can be fucking lethal. Retarded boomers don't realize u shouldn't kiss ur kids if you recently had an outbreak.

    Apply small amounts of toothpaste regularly. This dries it out, making it less painful while also getting rid of it.

    Can you get these from cups or something? Or do they lie dormant?

    • 4 months ago

      Once you get the virus you have it for life, but it lies dormant until you get too stressed or get sick. Basically whenever you're feeling run down there's a chance it will form a cold sore. And you originally get it from contact with the virus.

    i member when i almost got this from a gnomish girl i was fucking for a while. she made a passing joke about how i wouldn't want to see her because she had one that was scabbed over currently and i was like "wait what?"

    had a small argument over it, and told her about how i pride myself on being 100% disease free, even if it isn't a big deal for most people and she likely didn't have control over how she got it, which was likely from handsy aunts or uncles kissing cheeks or some shit. told her that i didn't hate her i just didn't want to catch anything so i'd wait until it was healed.

    fucked her for a few more months but decided then that i was going to break up with her.

    Most people have hsv1, but only about 1/4 of those who have it are ever symptomatic. Just apply Abreva asap, and ask your gp for acyclovir to take in case it happens again, which it may ever even do

    Best and only option is to go to a dermatologist or general practitioner and have them put you on a year or two of suppression therapy with generic valtrex. You won't get them very often after that and you only need to take the pills when you get the rare outbreak.

      Because it is herpes. If you make out with a girl and she blows you after you can transmit it to your own genitals. I’m not joking, although you usually have some self immunity at that point. It’s typically a different form of the virus, but “cold sores” herpes can also cause genital herpes

      It is herpes, they don't call it that because it makes people freak out, people don't realize "cold sores" are herpes. HSV-1 or 2

      Most people have hsv1, but only about 1/4 of those who have it are ever symptomatic. Just apply Abreva asap, and ask your gp for acyclovir to take in case it happens again, which it may ever even do

      >nearly equal proportions of HSV-1 (13.3%) and HSV-2 (12.0%) were detected for an overall culture positivity rate of 25.3%
      >hsv tests are notoriously shit and give false positives, is you have a score below 3.5 but above 1.1 its like 80% false
      I feel like only 1/4th of the population actually has it, and its a lot less asymptomatic than people think. The estimations are just over inflated because 1.1-3.5 is seen as "confirmed positive" yet the false positive rate in this range is something like 80

      I took 3 herpes tests for hsv-2, the first test was positive, and then two negative tests. Thats a fucking high false positive rate. For reference never had any blisters.

      Go to your PCP, tell them about it, ask for a prescription for acyclovir or one of its derivatives. Topical medications have limited effect, although they can sometimes help with the itching/tingling feeling. If you have an outbreak more than 3 times a year, you can get a prescription for 2 pills a day, daily, which should prevent them from occurring so much. Eat well, exercise, and reduce your stress to mitigate outbreaks. Some people get them seasonally, and the chance of a flair-up is more likely when your immune system is compromised (aka when you get sick).

      "Cold sores" is the name given to the visible sores that are the result of the HSV-1 type of the herpes simplex virus. Cold sores ARE herpes, but we avoid pedantics and refer to it as cold sores for two reasons: one, herpes has an obvious stigma to it, and two, the methods of transmission are different and the fact that they are identifiably different from one another. HSV-1 is extremely common, many people have the virus dormant in them already and are unaware, and in the majority of cases spreads without any form of sexual interaction. HSV-2 is what most people think of when we hear "herpes".

    Don't listen to any one in this thread advising you touch your face with needles.

    Get Zovirax cream or whatever it's called in your country and apply it the moment you feel the first tingle. Cold sores often flare up when you're run down so keep it near your bed as often I realise I'm getting one after I've just woken up.

    Simply using that cream reduces cold sores that normally last over a week to just a few days.

    For prevention just look after yourself and sleep well. I'd get one once a month when I was sleeping like shit but now that I take care of myself I generally go without one for over a year.

    I'll tell you what actually works OP:

    Aciclovir tablets.

    It's the active ingredient they put in the cold sore creams but it's much, much more effective when taken orally.

    If you're lucky your immune system with deal with it and you'll rarely get them but if you take the tablets when you start to feel the tell tale signs (tingle etc) you won't even get one.
