Hello all, Well I will be starting college in a few days and one of my main concerns excluding anything school related, is getting cold sores while at school. I get really bad ones like ever 3 to 4 months and just wish I didnt have to worry about them anymore. I certainly dont want to freak out my roommate, or scare away any interested girls(there will be plenty) with the "he has herpes ewww" fallacy. Anyways, I have seriously considered taking a genital herpes medication even though I dont have genital herpes, my pediatrician said that he would prescribe them to me if the cold sores were really bad and a problem. Now I dont want to take a medicine to treat something I dont have, but I dont see any other options.I really dont want to get a cold sore at school, and having one less thing to worry about is always welcome. Any suggestions?
