Fever blisters

I have about 4 that started popping up yesterday and my whole lip is swollen and hurts really bad! Anyone know anything that can take the pain away or make them go away??

  • I had one last week. Normally they last what seems like forever, but this one wasn't as long. I started taking tons of L-Lysine right away and using peroxide and Releev. The peroxide makes it look gross and white, but it dries it out way faster. The Releev makes it go away in a lot less time.

  • Watch this video. how to get rid of cold sores fast 

    You can purchase some medications but some are expensive like Abreva that runs like $15 buck for a very small tube. The home remedy above are maybe things that you have might around the house and it would save you the expense.  GL

  • The PPs are good. The video says cold sores are hereditary - not true. They are caused by the herpes virus, and are contagious. Be sure you don't kiss anyone while you have a cold sore active - even if you just feel is starting. Keep the area clean, and wash your hands well if you touch it. GL

  • Prescription Zovirax. The generic version Acyclovir is $4 at Kroger or Walmart. As soon as you feel one coming on take 1 or 2, 3 times a day. They usually won't even come out at all.
