@paigers91:  Buy Abreva.  It’s expensive, but it’ll help.

That’s the beauty of Photoshop girlfrann! You can take Abreva or my friend got a prescription once that literally makes it go away the next day, but even if it’s still there I would not worry about it at all. One teeny dot will be easy to make go away in photoshop or any editing application!

Also, don’t worry about it making you not feel sexy. You will still be sexy regardless and once you get in the “zone” you won’t even be thinking about it! Don’t stress!

Polysporin makes these little clear band-aid type things you put on cold sores. And the parent company of Cold FX makes Cold Sore FX now, too. My Future Brother-In-Law uses both religiously.

Oh no please don’t use alcohol! I suffer from coldsores and someone suggested I use alcohol. I now have a permanent scar on my bottom lip/discolouration that shows up in photos if I have no lipstick on.

I swear by a vitamin called Lysine. I bought these from a wellness store and within 2 days it was more or less gone. Previously, I had a coldsore for 1-2 weeks where it would scab and bleed ๐Ÿ™

I know it may sound ridiculous but since I used this vitamin the first time, I didn’t get another coldsore for 4 years, I swear!

I had one last October and immediately took the Lysine and it was gone within a couple of days.

Regardless, don’t let it inhibit you. Your photographer will Photoshop it out np! Have fun x
