Just a quick word of warning..
My derm put me on a 5 day course of Valtrex to treat a cold sore, she was nervous about it spreading as my skin was so dry... I ended up feeling rotten - nausea, brain fog and a rash on my stomach.. Think the combo pushed me over the edge. Stopped the Valtrex and I feel fine now. Cold sore cleared up v. quickly anyhow.
My skin is starting to break out on my face again, not hudge cycsts but lots of redness and ruddiness and my pores look like teeny craters - I think they emptied themselves but forgot to close up - hope the get the memo soon! Would hate to be left with a million tiny pin pricks all over my nose, cheeks, forehead and chin. Has anyone else had any experience with this - do the holes shrink and close up??
Otherwise things are good. Went out for a friends bday last night and had a glass of Sangria (v. weak) felt fine this morning.. Was a bit nervous as I got a massive morning after headache the one other time I had a glass of wine a couple of weeks ago. But all seems well. I think I mentioned that my derm told me that Alcohol was OK for me in moderation.. ie glass of wine once in a blue moon.
