Cold sore

I hate them and i got one today/ What do you use? the stuff i use to use they discontinued and i haven't been able to find anything i like that well without having to spend a fortune. I am cheap i guess i can't see paying $20 for a tiny tube of stuff.

  • That tiny little tube is expensive, but I have found that it does shorten the life of the nasty little thing. You could also try some tea tree oil applied directly to the sore - although that may sting. You could call and ask for an antiviral from your doctor - but it is the weekend. The antiviral works much better if taken at the onset of the breakout. Try to boost your immune system - I have read that is supposed to help you from getting them in the first place.
