I have to kiss two men in a play, and I am worried about possible herpes. Neither have sores at the moment, but recently my bottom lip has felt weird?
Very low risk: This could be a risk if you haven't had oral herpes. (If you have, you're highly resistant to a new infection with HSV1.) But the risk is very low if neither of your fellow actors has a cold sore. I would guess that without a visible outbreak, less than one kiss in 10, 000 leads to herpes. "Felt weird" isn't a herpes symptom. If no visible sores on their lips, you shouldn't worry. Break a leg! ...Read more

Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) SE?: From your question, it sounds like ur saying you took Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) 30mg, once, and are asking if new mouth sores could be related?

Dry mouth or lips may be more prone to chapping or the occasional crack. I'd go and have the sores you're describing looked at. ...Read more

What causes cold sores I have a clump of them on my bottom lip and chin what will get rid of them and how long will it take I also feel really tired?
Time: If indeed they are cold sores you never get rid of the virus. Stress and uv light are tow of the most common reasons they erupt. If you catch it at the tingling phase you can take viroxin or zovirax (acyclovir). In my office the laser does great for keeping them small and increases healing. But you need to get in early. ...Read more

I have 2 cold sores on my bottom lip and used this Chapstick that says it treats cold sores and chapped lips, called Herpecín L but after I applied it my lips started stinging. Why?
Herpes labialis: OK, so forget anything topical for these cold sores. In fact, using the chap-stick after you get better is somewhat analogous to re-using toilet paper.

The best form of treatment for cold sores (herpes basically). is valacyclovir 1gr tablets...2 in the morning and 2 in the evening. Your done! ...Read more
