    those things are awful, best to start putting something on it right away so it'll go away more quickly

    Oh man thats the pits!! I don't get cold sores, but my husband does...and he HATES them! I still kiss him when he has them...he just doesn't go down "there" when he has them. I know abreva works really well and makes them go away quickly. also, putting rubbing alcohol on them works pretty well. I hope it goes away soon and GOOD LUCK baby dancing!!

    Cold sores never go away sadly. :( They are a strain of the herpes virus, and live dormant in the body until you are ill/run down/tired then reappear.

    its true that the virus lies dormant in your system, but they are not always active. My husband gets them twice a year (at the major temperature changes)....but my friend ashley only gets them like once every 6 years! So, hopefully you'll be lucky and barely get them!
