Well as you can see, I haven't posted on here for a while.
We were frantic in the lead up to Christmas with lots of school and family events. Then low & behold straight after Christmas it is my D.D's birthday. But I was so run down that I came out with my FIRST EVER cold sore. Even before DD's birthday. I didn't even get out of bed to make her a cake and my partner had to do it!!! And he did a great job but that is another post.
I have googled and googled and everywhere it says that 90% of the adult population has the virus that causes cold sores & that it is when you get run down that they appear. But why do I still feel unclean & dirty??? We eat healthily and eat a variety of foods, just I still have become run down enough to have this huge growth on my face for a week now.
On the first night - New Years Day no less, I felt the tingling and the blister developing. I have never had a cold sore before and as it was late all the pharmacies were closed, so I couldn't rush out and buy any cream.
- Be warned - dont'scroll down if you don't want day by day pictures - and it really does look like something out of an alien movie. It is just gross!!!
