cold sores
I have RA and was on Methotrexate which had to be stopped due to numerous cold sores and toe infection.  The Cold sores have started in my ear now even when I was on Acylovir.  Now the Dr. wants to start me on Arava.  One of the side effects is cold sores.  I am really worried about them now being in my ears and that I have had one that has not completly gone away after several weeks even changing to Valtrex.  Any help with what kind of specialist I could see.
I have had cold sores since I was born.  I don't get them in my mouth sometimes the lip.  I get them all over my face.  In Feb.  I had pnuemonia and also a viral infection in my throat that was treated with Acylovir.  I also had a viral infection in my big toe.  Please help.
