Denovir is a prescription med for cold sores. Comes in a little tiny tube, but lasts a long time cuz you only need a little. My doc Rxed it years ago - and it works really well. There may be newer OTC things out - or even Rx meds - but my husband and I have both used it and found it to be the best thing ever.
P.S. I do a lot more thinking about ice cream than drag queens - I was totally thinking Dairy Queen!
diagnoses: mono 1972; postviral CFS 1997; fibro 1998; CEBV 2005; UCTD (dx limbo) 2007
meds: occasional low dose xanax for sleep, artificial tears w/ ointment at night, ibuprophin (none of which manages the problems very well!)
