I usually don't start the topics, but I've been having problems with herpes (cold sore) for two weeks now. I've used Acyclovir and zinc oxide creams and it subsided quite a bit, but at angles of my mouth the sores are still there.

This is the first time in my life I got a cold sore (was very sick with tonsillitis at the time, with high fever) and I have no idea how long will this thing last. Are there any tips that might speed the heeling up?

Please share your experience, this is getting me very depressed - I almost look like Joker :/
