I have been suffering from cold sores for over 30 years. When I was younger I would take large doses of Lysine but I think my body has become immune these days. At the first stage of tingling ICE ICE baby the area this can usually kill it from forming. If it starts to bubble I dip a ear bud cleaner / q-tip in pure tea tree oil and press on the forming blister , try and pop them all. pad the area dry and apply tea tree antiseptic, the area will scab within an hour. This remedy works for me but reading this thread there have been some other good suggestions that I am going to try such as peppermint oil and pure vanilla extract. I would really stay clear of chemical products for cold sore relief as they can easily scar the skin.
