In brief: Eat Yogurt

Herpes simplex virus is when you get little cold sores on the outside of your mouth or the tip of your nose.
Try not to touch the cold sore, you could spred it to other parts of your face or eyes. Steep a tea bag then cool it- apply to cold sore to releive pain. Lysine, 3, 000 milligrams daily until the sore goes away. Or eat yogurt which is rich in lysine. You can buy lip clear which has lysine.
