  • Car max. Dont put make up on them. MIL did and they looked nasty after she took the make up off.

  • ABREVA- about $15 @ any pharmacy, grocery store, walmart, k mart, etc.

    cold sores are herpes... abreva is a topical steroid treatment that will NOTICEABLY reduce the appearance and help heal them in about 1/2 the time of anything else (ex DH had them, and this was THE ONLY thing that helped!)

    hate to tell you, but they won't be gone by sat- but you may be able to reduce the appearance of them... i would be running out to the grocery right about now. seriously.

  • GO TO THE DRUG STORE AND BUY L-LYSINE IT IS AN AMINO ACID IN VITAMIN FORM AND AS WELL AS THE IS A CREAM FORM BUY BOTH, when I was in high school I took 1000mg a day of L-Lyine to prevent cold sores because kid are mean!!!
