I have a huge, ugly cold sore and I don't want to leave the house because of it. I know it is hormone related (I tend to get them when I have hormonal imbalances and I remember getting one in my first trimester last time.). Does anyone know if abreva or anything else is safe? I tried asking the nurse on the phone today but she just said I should ask the doctor next time I'm in. Ugh, I really don't want to wait that long. I have a bad feeling the answer is just that I will have to wait it out but I am hopeful there is something I can do. I have never had a cold sore this bad and it seems to be getting worse instead of better. I am supposed to go out with some friends on Saturday and I'm honestly considering canceling because I'm too embarrassed. Is anybody else at all in the same boat?
