Cold sores usually appear on the lips and areas around the mouth. But they virus which causes cold sores is a very virulent one and on occasions they can spread to the cheeks, the nose and even in your nostrils and worse case scenario, around the eye area or on your eye. If you ever get a cold sore around the eye area, you should see your doctor right away to get this seen to, as in a worst case scenario this could lead to blindness if left untreated.
The virus travels through nerve paths and can spread to other areas of your face near to the initial infection. Getting cold sores or fever blisters on other parts of your face can be more painful than the ones that generally appear on the lips and around the mouth and nose cold sores in particular are extremely uncomfortable. A really bad example of a nose cold sore is pictured below..
Are Cold Sores on the Nose as painful as those around the Mouth area?
This is a frequently asked questions by sufferers whose cold sores spread to other regions on the face. Cold sores on and around the nose are similar to those that appear on your lips and mouth. They swell and form blisters which erupt, produce scabbing and in the fullness of time, heal, usually without leaving any scars. As you can see from the photo, they look nasty and they are painful and spread very easily.
Cold sores on and around your nose are usually caused because you inadvertently actually spread the virus from one area to another yourself. Cold sores are highly contagious. Picking your nose when you have previously touched an active cold sore elsewhere on your face is one way of transmitting the virus to your nose and nostrils. Being conscious of what you touch and washing your hands regularly should avoid spreading the virus to other parts of your body. You should also applying a hand sanitizer after washing.
Cold sores which spread to your nose can be very irritating and extremely painful particularly if you have the flu or a cold at the same time, which often happens because your immune system is low. When you have had cold sores in a particular area, there is a higher than usual probability that they will reappear there anytime your immune system is compromised. The inside of your nose is moist and warm, conditions which will help the virus thrive thereby increasing the chances of the virus infecting nearby areas all of which can mean a longer than usual healing time. Once the scabbing stage begins, the crusting of the sores quickly becomes hard due to the constant flow of air in the nostrils. Once this has happened the scabbing can easily crack open and bleed with the smallest of aggravation to your nose. The membrane inside the nostrils is fragile and thin which makes it highly likely that the scabs will break open and bleed. All of this can prolong your bout of cold sores.
Applying home remedies like placing an ice cube on the affected area is thought by some to help relieve the pain of cold sores and to speed up the healing process. Taking L-lysine can also shorten the duration of the episode as well as applying liberal amounts of Vaseline to the area to keep it moist and to avoid the drying out and crusting phase. If Vaseline is applied in the early stages, you will definitely minimize your chances of an outbreak the likes of that pictured in this article.
Having cold sores on any part of your face is highly unpleasant and unsightly and if those cold sores spread and become nose cold sores then the likelihood is that you will prolong your episode of infection unless you take steps to deal with it. In trying different treatments it is important to take a holistic look at the causes of cold sores and ways to avoid further outbreaks. There are now natural treatments available which will not only deal with your immediate discomfort but which will also minimize your chances of future outbreaks as the root cause of the infection is addressed.
A study regarding acupoints and magnetic wave therapy and Fibromyalgia was performed by the Mayo Clinic in the United States and presented at a pain conference held in Sydney, Australia. Great promise is shown when it comes to this non-invasive, ancient form of therapy. Anxiety, pain, and chronic fatigue are just some of the symptoms experienced by many fibromyalgia patients and shown to be effectively alleviated by stimulation of acupoints, or the points at which the body’s meridians contact the skin. While acupuncture is not seen as a cure for fibromyalgia, it can greatly enhance the patient’s quality of life over the long term, particularly with continued treatments. This seems to be a viable alternative to the medications usually prescribed to counteract pain and depression.
Fibromyalgia is a syndrome rather than the definition of an ailment. It has no known cause but is characterized by a set of symptoms that are common and chronic. It may be related to arthritis but is not a true arthritic disease of the joints, which involves joint or tissue inflammation. Instead, fibromyalgia is considered a rheumatic condition which impairs the tissues and joints and causes pain. There are a variety of symptoms those diagnosed with fibromyalgia suffer from.
These include cognitive difficulties; disturbance of sleep; headaches; irritable bowel syndrome; stiffness, numbness, and tingling of the limbs; restless leg syndrome; and sensitivity to temperature and light. It is usually women who suffer from fibromyalgia, but this does not preclude it from affecting men and children; race or ethnic background is not an indicator of a person’s likelihood of contracting the syndrome.
How Magnetic Wave Acupuncture Helps with Pain
Acupuncture, which can be accomplished via magnetic waves, electrical impulse, massage, or other methods that do not utilize needles, can alleviate many of the symptoms of fibromyalgia without the side effects of prescription medications. The procedure is non-invasive and the positive effects are nearly immediate. Muscle manipulation is usually not tolerable by anyone suffering from fibromyalgia so acupuncture provides a way to treat the symptoms without causing further pain and discomfort.
Stimulation of acupoints has a positive effect on stress and anxiety because it can release melatonin, the body’s natural chemical for relaxation. This can help a patient sleep better. Because chronic fatigue often leads to depression, getting sufficient rest aids the patient’s mood tremendously. Magnetic acupressure also stimulates circulation, which can provide the sufferer with increased energy and vitality.
Yet another benefit of acupuncture is the release of endorphins, which block feelings of pain. All of these benefits were supported by the Mayo Clinic study. Many alternative therapists already knew how acupuncture could positively affect patients suffering from pain, anxiety, and sleeplessness but the fact that highly respected members of the medical community confirmed their beliefs has brought a new level of acknowledgement to the practice.
For anyone diagnosed with fibromyalgia, acupuncture can present a viable, complementary treatment to help them lead a more normal and functional life. With a magnetic wave device, the procedure can even be performed at home, making it both simple and cost-effective. Talk to your physician about adding acupoint therapy to your fibromyalgia therapy options.

Doctors are only human and sometimes get it wrong in their diagnosis and treatment of fibromyalgia!
If you suffer from symptoms such as persistent discomfort, tenderness, moderate to severe fatigue, the sensation of pins and needles, muscle aches, muscle spasms, chronic sleep depravation or even irritable Bowel Syndrome, you may find that these are all symptoms symptoms often misdiagnosed by your GP as symptoms of arthritis when fibromyalgia may be the root cause of your discomfort.
it’s a common mistake in the treatment of Fibromyalgia for those seeking fibromyalgia pain relief.
Many who suffer from fibromyalgia also experience diminished concentration, short term memory loss, slower than usual reactions and not being able to multi-task. Fibromyalgia is also commonly linked to sleep disturbances.
The onset of Fibromyalgia, may initially be gradual and it is a little known fact that the syndrome can affect teenagers and indeed, that conditions of fibromyalgia syndrome are frequently misdiagnosed in adolescence as ‘growing pains.’
Fibromyalgia does not cause inflammation as is the case with Rheumatoid Arthritis and becasue of this some non-steroid based, anti-inflammatory drugs may help to reduce discomfort symptoms in the short to medium term in some instances however, in the long term most of such drugs have almost no use in fibromyalgia pain management.
The exact key to effective Fibromyalgia pain relief is unknown, however, several possible links have been made to things such as :
Dopamine aberration (causing a twitchy leg effect)
Doctors use a collection of classification standards informally known as ‘the ACR 1990′ which determine the treatment of fibromyalgia syndrome according to the presence of the following factors:
History of widespread pain and discomfort which has been present for longer than 3 months and which has had an impact on all 4 regions of the body, namely the sides and those above and below the waist.
Another test is to apply a minimal amount of force (about 4 kg of mforce) on tender spots. There are eighteen appointed points were force is applied. In order to be considered as suffering from fibromyalgia the patient must feel discomfort at 11 or more points.
Treatment of Fibromyalgia can effect every aspect of a persons’ life and it is becoming widely accepted that the best treatment is a holistic one using appropriate medicines, massage, yoga, osteopathic and chiropractice assistance where appropriate, along wqith the right blend of physiotherapy, gentle exercise and a carefully structured diet plan.
