I woke up this morning with a fucking cold sore right in the middle of my upper lip :(

I REFUSE to have a cold sore when I have this baby! I want to be able to kiss toes and her cheeks and I can't do that with a cold sore.

Normally I would take Goldenseal and use Abreva (sp?) But the stupid bottle says not to take it if you're pregnant and I can't go get Abreva from the store until DH gets paid tomorrow.

Anyone know any other ways to get rid of them?

everything says not to use it if you are pregnant, even cough drops, it is a blanket CYA

call your ob and ask if it is safe

Call your doc and ask for herpes meds. Clean it with alcohol. That campho phenique stuff works.
