I tried the bleach method this morning. My cold sore came on yesterday. If you do use the bleach..please be very careful with this! Apply a small amount to the cold sore with a q-tip. Don't put too much on or it will drip and go where you don't want it and burn you. I did this. Then I put an ice cube on it until it melted. I have been applying hand sanitizer all day. I can say that it is drying up fast! Usually I use Abreva and it seems to make mine worse.

The second I see one, I apply preparation-h. (yes, hemorrhoid cream). It keeps them from getting bigger. Really works! Later, I freeze a wet tea bag and put on it. (Tannins in the tea are good, plus the cold)

Use the juice found in the bulbine plants leaves to prevent a cold sore by applying it to the area which feels itchy and tingly. Also, use it to heal a cold sore that has already formed. Excellent!!
