Rosy,

 

  There is a multitude of home remedies for cold sores (also called oral herpes).  Each person’s response to a home remedy is different, so you may need to try several remedies before you find the one that works for you.  You may discover a combination of home remedies is most effective. [More Info]

  I hope this helps Rosy and feel free to ask me any questions you may have.

Hi Rosy,

 

I know you posted your question a long time ago, but I was wondering if you found any relief with OTC medications for Herpes?  I would love to hear what worked for you.

 

There are a few medications or supplements available (and your pharmacist may be able to point you in the right direction), but your doctor is still the best person to consult.

 

I do have a few articles that might interest you on the topic:

Hope you are well!
