i have woken up this morning with a tingling in my bottom lip.
as soon as i felt this i went online to find some remidies, i havent got any of the creams from the pharmacist or from the doctor so i went and had a look. i found the ice treatment and the nailpolish remover i am currently using the nail polish remover idea and i think its working but to be honesti havent got a clue.

i am seeing my boyfriend saturday and i ould like to kiss him if thats possible, also would it spread to 'other areas' on him if anything happened?

do you think the nailpolish is worth a prooper try or am i just dreaming that this is going to be gone by saturday?:/

your opinions would be of much help:)

thank you x

Ugh I hate those--I get them when I am out in the sun too long..I honestly have never heard of the nail polish treatment..Seems like that would be like putting pure alchol on an open sore..I would use lightyh ice until you get to the phramacy..If you break a blister it will spread..good luck..It usually takes several days to be safe with a cold sore..sorry..

if your really worried like i said dont kiss him. you can see him, hung him, kiss him on his cheek, watch tv and eat popcorn, talk, laugh...okay you get the picture.
yall can do other things also, but dont stress yourself about it too much b/c it's not that big of a deal.

CurlyWirly, you do realize what a cold sore is? Herpes I can spread to genitals. Your boyfriend doesn't care? Protecting you both should be a priority. He might not care if you go south but in return it could come back and bite you in the butt. Protect yourself! Cold sore? No kissing. Finish your medicine and just be careful in the sun and tanning beds. It isnt something to be ashamed of. Just play it smart. If you continue to use nail polish make sure you keep your lips hydrated with a lemon balm.

When you have no signs then you are in the clear. love_pinkish, there is a big difference between husband and boyfriend. curlywirly, sweetheart you can still see him, hug him, hang out with him, hold hands, and cuddle.

Don't even kiss him on the cheek. You can get this anywhere on your body. Not everybody is susceptible to the virus. Fair haired and fair skinned people tend to be more susceptible than others. The sun can bring these on and stress also. I've lived with them my whole life. My dad and I were the only ones in the family that got them. We're both blonds.

I have a question for you. How are you going to feel when he gets his first cold sore? Did you stop and think about that before you kissed him? I think you made a poor decision.

you said you kissed him and did nothing else. when you shouldve did everything else instead of using your lips on him.
having a cold sore is like having a ringworm in a way.

SHE HAD 2 HAVE EVERY1 TOLD HER NOT 2 DO IT..SHE MADE A POOR DICISION HOPEFULLY SHE DOESNT MAKE THOSE DECISIONS WHEN IT COMES TO HORRIBLE DISEASES U CAN CATCH AND POSSIBLY DIE FRM..B VERY CAREFUL AND START THINKING OF UR FUTURE..ITS VERY EASY TO SAY NO..DONT LET YOUR SEXUAL EMOTIONS TAKE OVER..OR NEXT TIME JUST SIMPLY RESQUEDULE IF U CANT SAY NO.
