Complete course of your antiviral, avoid popping any lesion for various reasons including chances of spreading it and also increasing inflammation and probable infection that may require more antimicrobial. Boost your immunity by adequate rest and nutrition; and responsibly not transmit infection to others. I hope you get well soon.
