cold sore meds and breastfeeding

*I'm also posting this in babies* is it safe to use cold sore meds while breastfeeding and if so which ones work the best? This is the first time I've ever had a cold sore and it only seems to be getting worse. Thanks!

  • Abreva works great and is completely safe. Topicals are safe unless you're putting them on your nipple.
