I had a cold sore on my breast and I don't know why... Where did I get it or is this a symptom of a serious illness?
See a doctor: Have somebody with professional training get a look at this. Cold sores on the breast do not generally happen, and am afraid this may be something more severe. Get it looked at, by a dermatologist if possible. Hope this clears up soon.

See a physician!: Your symptoms are worrisome for possible pneumonia. You may need antibiotic treatment. It's not possible or proper to make a diagnosis without examining you and taking a medical history. Stop looking for answers on the internet and see a physician as soon as possible. Your delay in seeing a physician may allow any infection to get worse, making it more difficult to cure.See 1 more doctor answer
I have what looks like a cold sore feels like a pimple if I touch it like sore. And I am not breastfeeding and have never breasted. Just wondering if?
Where is your lesion: Sounds like a skin infection which can be due to bacteria or viruses. Like you say, it could be a pimple, abscess, cold sore, etc. I would try hot compresses to see if this helps and if no resolution have someone look at it so they can start you on the right medicine. Depending on the location, this can provide some clues as to what it may be.
I have herpes lesions on right side chest, arm pit, and back. Never a cold sore. What type of herpes is this?
Nausea, cold sore, headache, stomach and chest pain. What's wrong with me? I've lost my appetite and just don't feel well at all.
Red, sore, bumps that keep recurring. First occured on collar bones, now lower on chest. Antibiotics, bactroban, (mupirocin) anti-histamines&cold sore patches don't help?
My 2yo son has cold sore and herpetic whitlow. He is given cephalexin to treat infection on finger. Now we saw red bumps on chest and back. What is it
A herpetic whitlow: Is not a bacterial infection and, if that is what the finger issue is, does not require antimicrobials.See 1 more doctor answer
Laser: Canker sores or aphatous ulcers have no know cause except they are triggered by trauma, stress, spicy, citrus food. Not everyone gets them though. They are recurring and even though there are some medication that help cut the cycle down from 14 days, I am a big proponent of laser treatment. Recent studies have shown laser treatment of the area can stop the pain immediately and cut the cycleSee 1 more doctor answer
Herpes simplex virus: Cold sores are painful blisters that can occur on the lips, roof of the mouth or the gums which are caused by the herpes simplex virus (hsv-1). Melissa officinalis or lemon balm (cream) expedites healing of cold sores. It can reduce healing time by half. Studies also show that regular use can help v recurrences. Brief supplementation with lysine 1, 000mg orally 3x / day at the onset, can work.

Herpes simplex virus: Cold sores are a re-activation of latent herpes simplex virus infection, at the corners of the mouth or elsewhere. Not all sores at the corners of the mouth are cold sores, though; more commonly, cracking or oozing of the skin here represents "angular cheilitis"--the result of frequent exposure to saliva, and may become secondarily infected by bacteria or yeast. See your dentist for more info.See 3 more doctor answers
Yes and no: You generally get cold sores when your immune system is down. A sinus infection can tax your immune system, . So they are an indirect cause.See 1 more doctor answer
Does abreva really work to heal cold sores? I feel like It did the opposite and caused my cold sore to spread
Not effective: Docosanol (Abreva) slightly inhibits the virus in the lab, but not effective in treating oral herpes. So it's not quite quackery, but comes close. But it shouldn't make an outbreak worse, unless maybe you're allergic and it caused increased redness, itching, etc. Ask your doctor about a prescription for valacyclovir: 2 g twice, 12 hr apart as soon as an outbreak starts, is very effective.
