  • it depends on where the cold sore is. inside the mouth mix benadryl and pepto bismol and swish with it before spitting it back out. like 3 times a day
    outside the mouth, start eating lots of raisins.

  • anti viral creams are best, some OTC remedies work really really well. but seriously, for the cost and convenience, raisins work better than anything.
