    I know it's a daft question but how do you tell the difference? I've got six little blisters near my bottom lip, my skin is all tingly and sore too am very stressed and run down! Never had a cold sore in my life so not sure what they look like.

    Feel daft going to the docs with this but pretty uncomfortable. Had a look on the internet but can't tell!

    Can anyone help on this please?

    sounds very much like coldsores to me. I get the little blighters all the time but thankfully not had one in a while.
    go to the pharmacy and buy some Zovirax (cold sore cream) and apply it three or four times a day. It will disappear quite quickly. I get them when i am feeling stressed or run down.

    Hope this helps

    Thanks everyone = so much better than trying to get to my docs tomorrow - torn between wasting their time and being laughed at! Am off to get some cream.
