Thanks for the tips everyone I too suffer from this dreaded virus, cancelled a shoot today as my whole chin is covered and my head is throbbing with fever! I use lysine cream (from Holland and Barrett) only £3.50, and Lysine tablets also from same shop. I didn't know about the patches, but doubt they would cover mine, as they are massive and I don't feel good either! My aren't always on the same places either.

Cold sores are caused by the virus Herpes simplex - Therefore, use an anti-viral such as acyclovir (example product=Zovirax). Other than staying healthy, it is that simple!

'Natural" has no real meaning in this context. It's a 'rip-off' and one that is marketed a women. It is either effective or it is not. Aciclovir based medicines have scientific rigour behind them. Other stuff does not seem to. Its that simple. Spend your money wisely. In any case Aciclovir was first isolted from the common sponge. Natural enough?

Be very careful about doing anything more than a snog.

Campaigners have criticised the Court of Appeal after it rejected a man's appeal against his conviction for infecting a woman with genital herpes.

David Golding, 31, of Braunston in Northamptonshire, had been jailed for 14 months after admitting grievous bodily harm in August 2011.

His appeal was rejected although his sentence was reduced to the three months he had already served in prison.

The Herpes Virus Association said it was "appalled" at the ruling.

The group, which campaigns against the transmission of herpes being treated as a criminal offence, supported Golding throughout his case.

Its director Marian Nicholson said: "We are appalled at the court's failure to overturn the guilty verdict - herpes virus transmission should not be in the legal arena at all.

"Over half the cases of genital herpes are caused by the common facial cold sore type usually [transmitted] by oral sex.

"The implications of the judgment are that any of them [infection carriers] could be sent to prison if they transmit this infection to a partner."

Put some perfume or aftershave on a tissue then squeeze it on your cold sore as hard as you dare. Works for me.

One of the best things I have ever used is the Virulite machine, it's a small device with led's that emit wavelengths which greatly increase the body's natural defences against the cold sores, if used at first 'tingle' often stops them forming at all, but reduces severity if they have already started.
I occasionally suffer slight Rosacea near the sides of the nose and it works on this as well.
