Having a cold sore is no fun - Page 2

post #16 of 17
1) It is estimated that 80% of the American population has the cold sore virus. Most of them never have outbreaks. We get the virus from towels, from aunts kissing us, etc. We get it as children, most of the time. Being a jerk is an ailment that only some have, is most likely incurable, and most likely comes from parents that have failed in the child raising process.

2) When I first notice a cold sore, at the *very beginning*, no delays, I get a box of q-tips and fingernail polish remover. I soak the sore, swapping q-tips every few minutes. I do this *as much as possible* throughout the day. If I catch it early enough, and if I soak it often enough (2 minutes at a time, very frequently), the sore never develops. If the sore is already starting to advance then this technique can also help. But not on sores that have already split the lip.
