Re: Cold sores
a cold sore is a virus and should have nothign to do with the sun.
maybe you keep comming in contact with the virus, weather it was from you before or someone elts, always during hot days.. but that don't make too much sence to me...
yes they do come out when you are stressed, because the virus will always be in you, and when you are stressed, you immune system lowers so it will not attack the virus but let it get the high end of control.
maybe eveytime it is hot, you immunesystem goes down. that happens with alot of people with different things wrong with them. do you have any other medical problems? or are you really healthy? and this cold sore thing is the only thng
and eveyrtime you are stressed you immunesystem goes down.
bost your immune system, with maybe herbs, or a good diet. and exercise ALWAYS HELPS the immune system. or if you have any other problems, joint pain, bad job.. take care of them first.. then worry about these cold sores, if you can get you immunesystem undercontrol,. you will have less out breaks.
IMO I don't think advoiding the virus is going to help as in washing everything more. I mean it will help a little. but I think the best defence is your total health. at least that is what has worked best for me. and I have both type one and type 2 of this virus.
the virus is in you, if your t-cells attack fast you will not have an OB. but they have to always keep it locked up in your body... if it escapes, and you have more of the virus in you then you do a defence system... well you know...
