Let's talk cold sores and mouth ulcers.

Who gets them, how often?

Have you mentioned it to your rheumy or doctor and what's their verdict?

I get them often, today in have a beastie growing in the corner of my mouth and on the side of my tongue I can feel an ulcer coming.

But I get the absolute worst on or around my lower lip line.

Who else experiences this. None of the OT stuff works and for the ulcers I just swish with salt water.

So I'm interested to know who else gets this?

I also used to get stys. I pulled all my eyelashes out when i sneezed using an eyelash curler. So painful. I could not get my eyelashes to grow back. My eye Dr told me to wash my eyelashes with Johnson's baby shampoo in the shower. Not only did my eye lashes grow back, i never had another sty. 😁😁😁

I have been on Valtrex 500mg for years. This keeps them down to a minimum.

L- Lysine vitamins help to keep the cold sores at bay. Also Acyclovir. Look up triggers on the web and see if any relate to you. Not getting enough sleep will do it for me.

I take 100 mg of selenium every day. When I do this I don’t get cold sores or fever blisters.

My gums and the inside of my lower lip flare up. I see my dentist regularly, and she says it's nothing sinister, so it's all about our nerve endings I suppose.
