Oh poor you...

Mouth ulcers are far worse than cold sores. Using bonjela?

Coldsores are just as bad - I don't tend to get very many of them,

I have been using anbesol... usually it takes me weeks to get rid of ulcers :(

Cold sores and ulcers are awful at the moment I'm just getting over both >:(

With ulcers I find a salt water gargle twice a day helps,And when I have a cold sore I just leave it alone because I know if I touch it then it will spread.I happened to me before and I had a face full it was so discusting.I have seen a new product advertised on the T.V it's like a clear covering for cold sores I will try it next time I have one,Hopefully not too soon

I've got 2 coldsores at the mo so can sympathise with you totally! I always get them... :(

I use the boots coldsore cream but mostly it's not that effective. Also use the liquid roll-on that dries it out which is ok but stings :o

I've heard about little lipstick type pens that you can use to zap at the area and clear it. Take a look here, not used it personally but know of people who have and recommend them... www.vcs.eu.com

We sell a natural cream though apparantly it does take a while for it to go your better off with something like zovirak, or the new one or even those patches

I often use old fashioned scent or after shave but my best tip is an ice cube works brillaintly if none of them then zovirex

I find vit c powder helps - as it makes imune system stronger, we have the Solgar buffered vit c powder - i take 100mg daily more if ill or got cold sore......

Eating lots of garlic helps too!

Alison :)
