... away quickly.?
Cold sores - I got a cold sore on the edge of my lip a couple of months ago, very mild, and went?
Added 2 Dec 2016:
The outbreak was 2 blisters, about 1/4" apart on the edge of my lip. I have gotten cold sores for about 10 years, always fully on my lip(never on the edge before), and never more than 1-2 times per year. Since that cold sore on the edge of my lip, I have been having recurring redness and inflamation every couple weeks at the site of one of those blisters. It looks similar to a blister coming on, but not really the same. There is no heat, burn, tingle, pain, or any other normal symptom or warning sign. It is in the exact same identical spot. It never gets worse or developes into anything, and goes away in a few days. I was getting very stressed out about it, but now I think maybe there is a common reason for this. I have a newborn at home, so I am paranoid to even infect my wife for fear she may infect out baby. Is this common?
Stress causing a flare up is not remotely unusual. Is paranoia about spreading disease common? I really don't know; in my experience many people have a very casual disregard for others and one sociopath I knew who made it a point to give as many women genital herpes as possible. In my case with HCV I did not touch a single other soul for almost 20 years.
