My New Invention

You guys, I got the best souvenir from the Leadville Marathon (race report HERE) last weekend!

A huge cold sore that encompasses the entirety of my lower lip! It is pussy (puss-ee, get your mind out of he gutter), swollen, angry and disgusting. If it is raining, you can come stand under my lip! If only there weren't the icky blisters, I might look sexy and like I got lip injections. So not the case.

I would post a picture, but no one needs to see that. Unless you are a lip doctor and can do something about this mother f&%cker.

So, typically after a marathon I would take quite a time to recover. But since I am trying to train myself to run on tired legs, I did no such thing. I took Sunday and Monday off. Then:

Tuesday: 4 miles (God help my legs)
Wednesday: 8 miles (hot, slow)
Thursday: 12 miles (hot slow)
Friday: 6 miles
Sunday (planned Strip Run in Vegas): 6 miles

All runs felt sluggish. But, duh.

So, today I head off to Tempe, AZ to take Sam to ASU orientation. 118 degrees rocks! Then Erika and I are sending Sam back to Denver and we are heading to Vegas for some debauchery. I plan to lose all of my money, get a headache from smoke and drink a tad too much all in the name of fun.



 I am not expecting to talk to anyone because everyone balks at a cold sore and doesn't want to be your friend. It really does make you look like a monster.

Today when I was running and trying not to think about how much I didn't want to be running, I decided someone should invent a mini-visor for your lips. I use sunscreen on my lips, but when I have huge blisters, that becomes difficult and painful. So, a lip visor is clearly in order. Shark Tank, I'm coming for you. Mark Cuban loves a good mini lip visor. (It doesn't exist, I checked).

Do you get mean, angry cold sores? What's your remedy? I only get them from the sun. I should have re-applied on Saturday, but I was too distracted by running a marathon.

Vegas: Love or hate? I am a HUGE Vegas fan (in moderation). I love playing blackjack (and losing)

  1. Talk to your doc about an antiviral med when you feel them coming on! Vegas is my one of my favorite places. Ran my first half marathon there last November and then went back again in May! ��

    2. Hi,
      My name is Sarah Anik, some months ago I had s*x with the third guy in my life whom i was about to marry and now I have herpes. I couldn’t believe it because he wasn’t a random guy, he’s the closet guy I’ve had as a boyfriend, but it has been a never ending nightmare since. I’ve always believed in GOD and have asked him for forgiveness which is ironic.
      I felt like killing myself with the taught of having a husband and family will be quite difficult and i felt like I’m not really in the room when people are talking. I didn’t know what to do and pretty much cry and pray every day to God for help and looking at my family with so much love and feeling that i have disappointed them even though they don’t know. Until God lead me to DR. SOLUTION online who promised to help me cure my disease through herbals. At first i didn't believe him, but to my greatest surprise i was cured completely by herbals, which medical doctor also verified that i was cured. Special thanks to DR. SOLUTION.
      Don't be discourage because he that did it for me will also do it for you and you can contact him through his email address solutionhealinghome@gmail.com or text him on what'sapp, phone number +2348077683109 or visit his website www.healinghome.webs.com for more information.

  3. After one of my worst cold sore infestations on my lip I went to my doctor. She hooked me up with a prescription for Valtrex. You take it as soon as you feel that cold sore tingle. Its 2x a day for 3 days. It may not totally prevent one but prevents it (may have a small blister/swelling) from being huge and spreading all over your lip.

    I head to Vegas Sunday. I love it for 2-3 days then I'm done.

  4. Take a Lysine supplement. My husband use to get them all the time and since he started taking 2 Lysine a day he rarely gets them. Also when you feel one coming on start with the Abreva. Good luck in Vegas.

  5. The only time I've been able to really rid myself of the joy that is lip herpes is when I was on a daily anti-viral for a long period of time. I think i took it for 6 months and didn't have cold sores for a few years it was glorious. Some people respond well to taking it at the first sign of a cold sore, but that has not saved me, unfortunately.

  6. Temps in Tempe are down...at least your plane can land without melting it's wheels...
    I think what you are experiencing is the stress your body went through. I have weird things "pop up" after my long races too. Hey I just found this on Amazon....did you know about her or what she titled her book? I thought you had copyrights on the phrase...! https://www.amazon.com/dp/B015WXQF8K/ref=dp-kindle-redirect?_encoding=UTF8&btkr=1

    It won't let me post with my wordpress for some reason...so I guess I am "anon" today! Cheryl

    1. There is a lip visor out there - it's called a mustache. You should be glad you don't have one! (jk) How did you find such a nice pool with nobody around it? Stay cool in Vegas!

  7. I am bad with cold sores - I pop them Sterilise a needle in alcohol and then just carefully pop all the blisters - apply alcohol to the lip In all the yeas I have been doing this I had one smallish infection They are hormon linked with me - when I was pregnant I had them weekly and I had a prescription for Valtrex Unfortunately here in Germany no-one will prescribe anything for me - so pop them it is

  8. Have you ever tried the Compeed cold sore patches? Not a miracle cure, but they have helped me in the past.

  9. You should name it. I'm not sure if it's a boy or a girl. You should also order it its own drinks in Vegas...everything will feel better afterwards. Or equally bad.

  10. L-Lysine at the first sign/tingle/itchiness. I double the recommended dosage for 2-3 days and play the rest by ear. Or apparently take it as part of your daily vitamins to keep them away overall, I just never remember to until I MUST!

    ReplyDelete
  11. There is a prescription cream called Xerese that is a god-send! It's most effective when applied in the very beginning stages though. A friend that's a pharm rep recommended it to me. My doctor had never even heard of it but wrote me a prescription and it's awesome. Ask for it!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Lysine is the way to go. Take it daily and more than one if you feel something coming on. Easy and natural. Swear by it! Ps it doesn't even suck to take a lysine, unlike some vitamins that make one gag.

  13. As soon as I feel "the tingle" of a cold sore arriving, I soak a cotton ball in rubbing alcohol and apply it several times a day. Quite often, that stops the cold sore in it's tracks. And if it still makes an appearance, it doesn't amount to much. This has worked for me for many years. I've tried abreva, the antiviral and various other creams and lotions ..... rubbing alcohol - simple, cheap and effective.

  14. Hey, nothing says party like a lip thingy. I'll second the anti-virals, though--they are worth their weight in gold for breakouts, both current and future ones. Other than that head over to Dr. Pimple Popper on twitter or YT (I kid you not, it's a real thing) and get really grossed out. Super congrats on Leadville!!

  15. People pay big bucks to get those swollen lips--so yours has a little pustule on it, no biggie.

    In all seriousness, I am cringing at all the advice people are posting here. There's nothing like posting a medical problem to bring out all the Dr Googles....

  17. I know this is weird but I get them in the same spot on my arm - from the sun mostly or stress.

  18. I would totally talk to you, cold sore, or no cold sore. Never get cold sores, no remedy. Sorry. Never been to Vegas, so no opinion. Sorry.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I use Abreva when I know I'm going in the sun and then a few times a day for a few days after.

  21. I used to get them (all sizes) all the time growing up in Colorado. Moved to Florida 23 years ago, and I can probably count on one hand the # of times I've gotten one. Must be something to do with altitude, cause it's sunny here all year long!

  22. lysine will get rid of cold sores within 3 days (spoken from experience, not "Dr. Google"). you can get it from any pharmaceutical or drug store.

    1. I've never had luck with lysine, unfortunately. I took it forever, and it never helped. Acyclovir (generic Valtrex) is the greatest invention known to man. It cuts healing time by 75%. I get cold sores from sun, colds, stress, dirty looks from people you name it, and having this on hand at all times has made me a much happier and more attractive person.

  23. I just spent 2 weeks hiking in Wyoming on my last long day I ran out of lip sunscreen. I thought oh its one day without it what can happen. Sure enough on my way back home I feel the beginnings of a monster cold sore. Not the trip souvenir I was hoping for! I feel your pain.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I agree with taking Lysine--as much as I can--as soon as I feel those nasty suckers coming on. I love & go to Key West every year, but between being on a germy plane & the strong sun, I usually end up with one. I lnow what you mean about feeling like a pariah!!!! Hope yours heals up quickly!!!

  27. Hi everyone!
    I'm so excited my husband is back after he have left me for another woman.
    My husband and I have been married for about 7 yrs now. We were happily married with two kids, a boy and a girl. 3 months ago, I started to notice some strange behavior from him and a few weeks later I found out that my husband is seeing someone. He started coming home late from work, he hardly care about me or the kids anymore, Sometimes he goes out and doesn't even come back home for about 2-3 days. I did all I could to rectify this problem but all to no avail. I became very worried and needed help. As I was browsing through the internet one day, I came across a website that suggested that Dr Unity can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So, I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and and told him my problems and he told me what to do and i did it and he did a spell for me. 24 hours later, my husband came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my family are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Unity.If you have any problem contact him and i guarantee you that he will help you. He will not disappoint you. Email him at: Unityspelltemple@gmail.com or call him on: +2348072370762..I am Donna Murray by name and I reside here in United States.
