Derdriu, I am unsure as to this portion of society being more at risk and or experiencing more break outs. Interesting, perhaps they are still building a mature immune system???

katiem2, I've seen cold sores and fever blisters more on children than on other age groups. Is that a fluke or are children the most common sufferers?
