  • I used to get them often and it seemed anything I would put on it made it worse, I kinda take a needle and like puncture it and then put hydrogen peroxide on it and then hold pads of alcohol on for as long as I can as many times as I can and it dries it up. Also if I feel a tingle on my lip like one is going to pop up but alcohol on it usually prevents it

  • l-lysine ointment from healthfood stores.

  • Lysine and supplementing w/vitamin C at first sign of that "tingle" usually will prevent a full blown outbreak of a cold sore/fever blister.
