ICE! I get cold sores often (haven’t had one in a while though, knock on wood). Everytime I feel it coming on I try to put ice on it as soon as possible. That drastically reduces how bad it flairs up. Also abreva.

Try a lip balm with melissa (also known as lemon balm) in it. It’s an anti-viral. Nature’s Gift makes one.

Call your doctor and ask for a rx for Acyclovir – oral. My doctor says dont hesitate to ask. It very cheap and works wonders.

you took valtrex yesterday and got the tingle today …….I’ve been getting cold sores about 6x/yr for the past 30 years so I’d call myself a professional 😉 all that stuff is crap, everything is useless except valtrex. And I’ve never used Valtrex preemptively but it works within 24hours.

My final diagnosis: Pimple lol I had a “cold sore” that never came to head, never went away after 5 days of valtrex. So I finally just squeezed the crap out of it, it hurt like hell, but it was in fact a pimple on my lip 🙂 good luck!
