Ok, Can you help me in any way
Doctor: Dr.Anil, Doctor replied 11 months ago

Thanks for all these additional information.
I understand your concern.
You should take OTC Motrin and Claritin.
Also do nasal saline spray.
Do saline gargles and oral betadine rinse.
Also hydrate yourself with Gatorade.
Start vitamin C and multivitamin supplement to boost your immunity.
You should try OTC Products containing docosanol or benzyl alcohol can be helpful in reducing the duration of the cold sore.
Lysine and Abreva are a couple of over the counter medications for cold sores(fever blister).
If your symptoms are getting worse then see your doctor for prescribed anti-viral medications.
Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.

Ok, thanks. What should I do in the meantime, I can't sleep
Doctor: Dr.Anil, Doctor replied 11 months ago

All these measures mentioned earlier can be used at home and available over the counter.

So try them.

If you have any painkiller with you at home then initially take it.

Warm compresses on swollen glands can be tried.

Hope this helps.

This is a legitimate chat forum, correct? I woke up
I woke up yesterday morning with what appeared to be five bug bites. One of the bites on my left arm, I could clearly identify two marks where fangs pierced the skin. They were not immediately itchy, but throughout the day, they became itchy at different times. Two of them on my right arm became extremely swollen (more than 2 inches of swelling around the bite site), the area is warm to the touch, and they are all very itchy today. I visited urgent care last night, because I don't currently have health insurance, and I was prescribed prednisone. Today, they continue to be red, swollen and warm. They have also re-developed heads that are turning black. I was also very concerned because my upper arms had a very lacy appearance last night, and I noticed a lot of little red dots, as if capillaries were being affected. Should I be concerned about cellulitis? … read more
