i would buy some "abreva" at your local drugstore. Occasionally (like once a year) i'll get a cold sore from stress or being in the sun... abreva totally works!

Natural cure for cold sores? Ear wax...no I'm not kidding. My chemistry prof told us about it. I know it's gross, but she said it works like a charm, and it's totally free. Dig some out and dab it on before you go to bed, beats spending money on cream crap you gotta wear all day. smile.gif

I also had a severe cold sore virus/outbreak right after i started accutane. my derm thought it was coincidence, but I think it was cuz the accutane lowered my immune system.
