    Famvir for cold sore suppression

    Ive been getting cold sores since I was in elementary school, I had about one every month throughout highschool, and they have lessened in frequency the past few years. I was worried about transmitting HSV to my boyfriend, so I started taking Valtrex every day for suppression, but I am experiencing a lot of hair loss. Has anyone tried Famvir? I now get about 2 cold sores a year as opposed to the 10 a year I used to get. also any recomendations on how to get rid of scars from cold sores? I have a few red areas where I generally get outbreaks. Thanks!
