    About Those Cold Sores

    Or as I call them, "fever blisters" I have had them my whole life, they are horrible, horrible, horrible, the pain, tingling, mine always turn into a little "colony" of blisters, never just one. Takes 2 weeks to completely go away, and still leaves a red mark for another month...

    Stress, Illness In the Blood...

    how can I get rid of it? I am going to see a doctor tomorrow. I think the doctor will say "you should use antiviral balm".
