Re: Cold sores all over face

It may be something besides HSV. It sounds a little like impetigo,which is bacterial. If it's very painful, it could be shingles, in which case you should see a dr asap! because you can get nerve damage from it, but meds can get rid of it easily. But as I said, shingles is very painful.
