  • I used to get cold sores all the time, and started taking Lysine--you can buy it at GNC or any vitamin place, I have not had a cold sore in over 4 years. I used to use camphophinque , I am not sure how it is spelled, but that seemed to help heal them a little faster!

  • The fastest way to get rid of them are prescriptions like Valtrex or Acyclovir. I've had cold sores since I was 9 years old and prescriptions definitely work the best.
