So all you folks for whom this is a deal breaker... The sores may occur on the lips, the gums, the front of the tongue, the inside of the cheeks, the throat, and the roof of the mouth."I'm saying that my health is my call. I sincerely hope that someone I am seeing is honest enough to disclose, and let me assume the risk for myself. As long as I can remember, I seem to get a cold sore about once per year.
After finding that nothing over the counter seemed to be of any help, I did some research.
IMO, you should bring it up if you are asked about having any health problemsbut you should say that it is contained and resolves, and is not considered being a disease. A few other threads were started by people with eczema/psoriasis etc. You can clean it up and put a fancy name on it, but at the end of the day, YOU HAVE HERPES!!! Craig Austin, a dermatologist in New York City, cold sores usually aren't a sexually transmitted disease (STD). There are two kinds of herpes virus: HSV-1, which is usually not an STD and occurs on the lip, and HSV-2, which usually causes herpes genitalis, which is essentially an STD in the genital area.
'personally i would like to know if the person i was kissing, and doing other things with, had a cold sore.
although not a major deal breaker i have never had one and would like to know if someone does so i can be prepared and know that certain things are off limit/the menu.

Lysine is dirt cheap and you can buy it in any drug store (the legal type) in the vitamin/supplement section .
You can google this and do your own research like I did.I use topical cream as well as take valtrex and it is usually all under control and fully healed within a week, two weeks if I didn't catch it in time.My question is, is this something I need to disclose early on in dating, such as you would a STD or something like that?Remember that we are the largest free online dating service, so you will never have to pay a dime to meet your soulmate.I searched this in topics, found lots of topics on cold sores but none on this particular question.Besides, are you really going to get into a heavy lip-lock session with someone while you have an open sore on your mouth? Not me.^^ That's well and good if the sore is visible, but what if it is inside the cheek or in the healing stages?
