Can't win

Today, I came down with painful sores in my mouth, just after having gotten over a cold. Apparently I'm allergic to the cough drops I've been eating for the past week to make myself feel better. FML

Are you sure it's not a herpes outbreak?

That's what I would think. Judging by my own allergies, reactions usually happen within an hour. 20 minutes is often long enough though. Unless she's been sucking jizz drops and got case of the herpilyderpilies.

That really sucks OP but I am curious as to how you didn't notice that you were allergic to them by day two of sucking on them? I doubt it took a full week for any signs of an allergy to show.

Not necessarily. Certain allergies and food intolerances can be days before symptoms occur. Its a reason people don't often associate their sickness with the food.

I get what you are saying, but usually if you have an allergy that results in sore, or blisters the first signs show up within the first couple of hours. There isn't usually a several day delay because that reaction is generally a sign of a pretty severe allergy.

LOLOOLOL SUCKING ON THEM.

alright everyone, I admit it, I gave OP herp and made them think it was the cough drops... haha jk jk.

That's alright, cough drops are gross anyways.

instead of liking cough drops you like huge long penis in your mouth. they make you feel more alive when your dad walks into your room and there are four guys all around you.

Exactly what I was thinking. I don't think it would take you a week to realise you are horribly allergic to something. Stop lying to yourself missy!

yeah.. I was thinking the same thing.. STD

Herpes sores are usually on* the mouth area of someone's face, not in.

True, but I thought you could also get them inside the mouth? Bah, just don't go kissing people until they are all gone OP. :P

it's herp I'm in the medical field I see it all the time.

Could be a canker sore or a cold sore...your immune system is probably weak from being sick which is why the sores show up around then. Sores doesn't sound like an allergic reaction. But you can't tell though without getting them checked out in person!

YDI for trying to treat cold with cough drops.

I LIKE COUGH DROPS... GOTTA PROBLEM WITH THAT???? GO CHOKE ON GRAPES.

OP never said only cough drops.

Oh, lol, at first I though OP was talking about her own saliva which she forcefully coughed up and then gladly swallowed again. At least she swallows.

I hope you find suitable treatment

please go to the doctor , you can never tell until you actually see a doctor! it could be more serious then that.

Mouth sores are actually signs of a cold leaving your body. It's perfectly normal, and you're probably not allergic to the cough drops.

Wow you really didnt notice?FYL
