Cold Sores: prevention and treatment

I have, at the moment, a humdinger of a cold sore ( herpes simplex )

It's painful and I'm irritated and so have done some research on the causes and treatments for the condition.

It seems one needs to treat at the very first sign of tingling!

Forty years in solitary confinement and counting, Angola, Louisiana State Penitentiary

As two men in Louisiana complete 40 years in solitary confinement this month, the use of total isolation in US prisons is on the rise. What does this do to a prisoner's state of mind?
Robert King paces the front room of his small, one-storey house in Austin, Texas.
"I imagine I could put my cell inside this room about six times," he says. "Probably more."
For 29 years Robert King occupied a cell nine feet by six - just under three metres by two - for at least 23 hours a day.
He spent most of his time incarcerated in one of the toughest prisons in the United States - Louisiana State Penitentiary.
