    I would go to the pharmacist and ask what they recommend. I've had cold sores in the past and know how much they suck...can't imagine having 4 at the same time while dealing with being pregnant. Hope you find something you can take and they go away quickly.

    Go to the pharmacy/doctor and see what they can give. Depending on how far along you are, they may give you aciclovir to treat it. Otherwise, its a case of looking after yourself until they go away

    I only have had cold sores when pregnant with my first. I put on tea tree oil to dry them out. I don't like using anything that isn't natural. It works a treat in drying them up.
