In brief: Resolve quicker

Melissa officinalis or lemon balm (cream) has been shown in european studies to help expedite healing of cold sores.
It can reduce healing time by half. Studies also show that regular use can help v recurrences. Brief supplementation with lysine 1, 000mg orally three times a day at the onset, can also hasten healing. Your physician can prescribe valtrex (valacyclovir).
