In brief: Get to it fast!

Cold sores are caused by herpes viruses .
The sooner they are treated, the better. When you first feel that little tingle that announces a future outbreak is the time to start the medication. Try abreva or campho-phenique. Consult your doc if you need something stronger or if accompanied by pain in the throat with swallowing.
