Visiting A Person With A Low Neutrophil Count When You Have Cold Sores?

Postby Banning » Fri Oct 06, 2017 5:03 pm

My mum recently had ALL leukemia and finished her 3 years of treatment about 8 months ago. She still gets her blood work checked all the time and I don't have the exact numbers but I know her neutrophil count was low the last time. Her doc said not to worry about it but she has had alot of cold sores since. Now I have two that have broken out in the last day or so and have taken my Valtrex and using abreva. But I'm supposed to visit for a meal on Saturday and I'm concerned about causing her to have another break out of sores because I'm currently broken out. Is it possible for her to have a break out after being in close contact with someone that has them? Or from say washing the cutlery I use? Kinda a random question but I've become vary wary of exposing her to stuff since she's been sick.

You have herpes.

If you're gonna get it, you're gonna get it. Some people are basically immune to herpes. Abreva useless. Valtrex works within a couple days if you catch it early. Otherwise, the blister is already on your lip. The blister is healed; it just doesn't magically disappear. She should see her dr for meds.
