Well I have never experienced cold sores before but I just went through a big move and I am now under a lot of stress. Late last week the corner of my lip started itching, I did not know what it was. A cold sore soon formed, so i put chapstick on it (burts bee wax)
I just started to feel another one forming on my upper lip and I am flying home to see my girlfriend on less than a week! Is it possible to clear it up by then? In your experiences, whats the best thing to take care of them?
How does this sound for a plan of action:
L-Lysine (1000mg) 3x a day
Echinacea (125mg) 3x a day
Vit-C (1000mg) 3 x a day
Apply Rubbing alcohol with Q-tip 5x a day
Apply Abreva 5x a day
No peanuts/milk etc
Anything else i can do to help. I started icing it today...how often should i keep icing it? Thanks!
