It : It is possible that you have a cold sore/fever blisters. If so, the best treatment is typically oral valacylovir. This is a prescription that can be prescribed by your doctor. It is important to take it as soon as you notice symptoms to help reduce the severity and duration of your lesions. I hope that helps.
