Hoping to have a resource for new to the site folks to see what recurrence patterns are for our members as well as the chance to add to the polls over time too by new members.

Feel free to add any comments you have about your own hsv1 oral infection

thanks!

   If I'm really stressed or don't get enough sleep, I get cold sores all the time. I swear when I was going through bad times, I bet I'd get at least 6 a year!

   I've had OHSV1 since childhood and as a child I got coldsores ALL THE TIME. As I got older my obs slowed to about 1-2 a year. As an adult I may get 1-2 in a year then go 2 years and not have any. It really doesn't effect me that bad. My kids get them too, probably from me kissing and loven on my babies and not realizing untill later that a cold sore was starting to form. Some times they hit out of the blue and other times they start with an annoying itchy lip. It's nothing now but 3 days with my best friend ABREVA and no lipstick.
