NO it is not herp...it is just a cold sore...I did researched it online so I think I know how I got it...probably too much sun....I should have put chap stick on it to prevent it. oh well! I learned my lesson. :)

It'll go away in a few days.
I hope that you do not have a herp on your lip. My aunt had a small herp on her lip a long time ago from someone kissed her. She was so mad, and she didn't know that time.

LOL! I did tried Abvera and it does not work at all. It is very expensive one but does not work! It does work for someone else. Oh well! I got Neosporin lip treatment. So far it seem work ok but not go away fast that I would like to. I know it'll take time to go away!
Use lip balm from a tiny container which it would say "for cold sores", it works like a charm for me. I get that once in a long time. I forgot the brand of it. I have it in the car and am too lazy to go walk to the car to get it, lol.

At least it will treat it faster than being untreated. :)

Always keep an eye out for a cold sore!...They are not to be taken lightly if they : don't go away, get bigger, or ooze pus.....

I've used oral jel for cold sores (worked for me). And vaseline (to keep my lips moist), not letting the cold sore "dry out", as it might bleed.

Friend of mine had a cold sore....ignored it...he worked out in the sun all day....the sore got bigger and bigger...finally he had to see a doctor....and it was Cancer! He had several surgeries! the cancer kept spreading...and he did die!

Camphor oil works for some, but it stings. Also there is a kind of lip balm you might want to try.

But just keep an "eye" on the cold sore. Don't risk it!

We had a close call last night. I was reading an article online about the two journalists jailed in N. Korea and all of a sudden an executable file wants to start running then my anti-virus software popped up and said it had detected Trojan Horse and had already infected 11 files on my laptop. I immediate turned off the wireless on my laptop, shut off the router as well as unplugged the modem and shut down the desktop computer. I don't remember what site I got it from, but for those of you browsing on this story - stick with well known news sources such as NY Times, LA Tribune, USA Today, and others such as MSNBC, or the Associated Press site. I had to do a complete scan on my laptop using AVG, Zone Alarm, and Windows Defender. Luckily AVG had caught it and isolated the virus before it destroyed my laptop. All night last night, I kept the Internet completely shut down at our house, nothing going out and nothing coming in until I was absolutely sure I had the virus taken care of. The AVG had placed the virus in the "virus vault" so for the time being I'm leaving it there. I also went ahead and did a complete scan on the desktop computer - nothing there except a bunch of cookies from various web advertisers (my dad frequents ebay) which I disposed of. Defragged the desktop and did a disk cleanup. I also did the same for my laptop this morning - a defrag and a cleanup. Now both computers are running fine. I have since upgraded the security on all Internet related functions to high. My dad isn't happy that he now has to sign in everytime he uses ebay but I told him it will remain that way for the time being. I also required a password for Outlook. With the virus now being in our system it is entirely possible that someone now has our passwords. I may leave it this way for a month and see if we have any trouble. I may also ask that everyone change their password including myself so that we can reduce our risk.

So far we've had no crashes but we'll see what happens in the next few days.

Oh no! Sorry to hear about your experience with the virus. We had that exact same virus on our old desktop. I put AVG on the computer after that, but the virus had spread too far for me to catch it and the computer died. When I first got my laptop at the end of December I put AVG on it ASAP because it is the best of the best. You are lucky you caught it fast and you've got a good antivirus working for you. I hope nothing further happens. I also have this add-on that tells me whether AVG believes a site to be safe or not... and it shows a green checkmark on search engines like Google beside safe websites. If you don't have it, you might want to look into it.

Ouch, you might wanna try Avira http://www.free-av.com/, since it's good at detection. I use this on my customers. And throw in Spybot Search & Destroy, so far I haven't have a single malware or virus. Yeah I hate Trojan Horse, one of the most known infamous virus.

Last year, I misspelled Oprah's website. It popups a porn website, and then I clicked to close the window, but it keeps showing up next more and more porn websites automatically that won't let me to close all the windows. It went out of control that got me scare and I was so pissed off. I shut off my computer by pressing the power button manually. Is that a virus or malware?

I think that these information is still buried inside my computer after I erased the caches and the browser's history. In case, a cop might seize my computer, and I didn't do it on purpose. I am sure that a judge and a cop don't care because they care to get paid to do their duty.
