Hi.. Thanks for the query
In certain people , cold sores or herpes simplex
infection tends to be very recurrent.therapy is effective when started within 48 hrs of therapy. The common medications used are Acyclovir
, Valacyclovir. Recurrence is reduced by the therapy given in between attacks monthly for a few days.
It is common to have a superimposed bacterial infection
on the lesions .topical anti biotic creams can be applied to reduce them.
You can consult a dermatologist
to get a prescriptions for continuous prophylaxis .Now you can start application of anti biotic creams like Fusidic acid
or Mupirocin to reduce superimposed bacterial infections.
Hope this helps. Take care!
