In brief: Tea Tree oil

Tea tree oil on a qtip or melissa oil .
.It stings but works well. 3-5 x a day. Homeopathic rhus toxicodendron also works well as does a chinese herbaceutical called schmoove (www.Franzcenter.Com). If they are recurrent ask your doctor about Valtrex (valacyclovir) - a medication to help. If they are recurrent you have an immune system needing boosting and chinese medicine can really help.
