I was just diagnosed yesterday and am going through my first OB - it's a doozey as I have over 20 sores and counting! Thanks to all those who've posted here. Gave me some good advice and made me feel a lot better mentally. My husband gets cold sores in his mouth and transmitted HSV-1 to me during oral sex. So far I've found that tea tree oil helps to take the sting away, as well as salt baths twice a day. I'm also taking Valtrex from my doctor.
