After much wondering, I went to the doctor to get checked out for oral herpes. What I didn't notice until I got home was that I also have nasal herpes, which is caused by hsv-1. How do I treat nasal herpes? Can I apply a cream that is used for oral herpes and cold sores, or should I get a different medication? Thank you!

I honestly do not know. I have never heard of nasal herpes. I would call your doctor and tell him/her that you found them in your nose also and ask what you should use to treat them.

Nasal Herpes totally sucks! I have it right now along with a bad cold. It's in both of my nostrils and hurts so bad just to blow my nose. And being inside a muscous membrane like the nostrils it takes forever to get rid of. It seems like now every time I get a cold, I get these too. I've been taking Acyclovir 200 mg/3 times a day and try not to blow my nose (which is very hard) so the insides can dry up. I haven't even gotten a cold sore on my lip in years, now it's just in my nose. Good luck Smile

Oh yea, and make sure to take 1200 mg of Lysine and 2000 mg of Vitamin C a day. It will help in the healing process. I'm going to keep taking the Lysine to prevent future breakouts if it helps.
