  • I've tried most everything out there and the only things that works for my is vitamin c. You can find it in powder form; make a paste out of it and apply it to your lip; stings a little but works really great. I no longer have to even do that. I started supplementing with vitamin c and since then, I have not had even a single outbreak.

  • You can always call the pharmacy although I am pretty sure that valtrex will help with that as well...
