Talk to your doctor/dermatolgist about getting on a Zovirax treatment. You take this 3 times a day for the 1st month 2x a day the 2nd month and 1x a day the 3rd month..After this you should NOT get them for a very long time and if you do you can get a refill and take a few and your cold sore will go away.
This is caused by stress also that your body does not make an antibody that you need to prevent cold sores. I suffered through high school with then!! I had 2-3 cold sores on my mouth at a time!! I am now 38 and hardly ever get them and when I feel one coming on I take the Zovirax and it goes away!! There is also a cream version now it works also.
