Subject: Re: If you are bother with a lot of cold sore's while on bio- logic's.
Yes, I realise that it's all down to my immune system being not what it should be due to the drugs. I have in the past had cold sores, but not so frequently like I am now.
I did go to my local chemist to get some cold sore relief. I get my drugs from there and have become friendly with the girl on the counter. Her mums got RA and is on Enbrel, when I asked her where the cold sore stuff was she told me her mums had lots of cold sores since being on Enbrel.
I did mention this like I've said to my RA nurse, was told by the nurse who came out to show me how to inject that I must report anything out of the ordinary that happens because it may be a side effect and it needs to be reported. Like I said, she didn't seem interested about it.
I have had the tingle several times since and have applied cold sore lotion and it's stopped it developing. I have had what I think is two on my lips, (I've never had them on my lips before, always been in the corner of my mouth so didn't apply any lotion at first). I did go to the chemist and I asked the pharmacist if she thought that they were cold sores but she didn't think so and told me to go to see my GP. I can't go to my GP with just two sores on my lips, not going to waste his time. I still think that they are cold sores. I've had them for nearly two weeks now, one is beginning to go now thankfully. They really looked awful.....two big scabs on my lips.......yes, vanity I know.
