Can coldsores first appear as a rash?

Herpes Simplex

Rash
Shingles or herpes zoster can present as a rash. Herpes presents differently. The virus starts to multiply when it gets into the skin cells. The skin becomes red and sensitive, and soon afterward, one or more blisters or bumps appear. The blisters first open, scab over, and then heal as new skin tissue forms. During a first outbreak, the area is usually painful and may itch, burn or tingle.

What's a good way to cure coldsores forever?

No cure

Spicy_foods
Although there is no cure for canker sores and they often recur, you may be able to reduce their frequency by: 1. Avoiding foods that irritate your mouth, including citrus fruits and acidic vegetables and spicy foods 2. Avoiding irritation from gum chewing 3. Brushing with a soft-bristled brush after meals and flossing daily, which will keep your mouth free of foods that might trigger a sore.
