If I start treating the cold sore as soon as it begins to form, it will disappear without a trace in 2 days. If I don't catch it that early, the sore will still develop, but stays small and is gone in about a week. Ice also helps in the earliest stages. Good luck!
I;ve been slathering it in abreva, and it's drying up, which is good. I feel like the homemade remedies would have worked if i didn't have so many/ it werent so damn big. There's a reason why I cover my lips in sunscreen when I go out, idk why I didnt do it this time.
