Re: cold sores and pregnancy

Hi I woke up yesterday with a cold sore after having a cold for the last week. I went to the pharmacy yesterday and they told me that I cannot use anything I am 2 days away from being 20 weeks. I am going to just fight it on my own. I hope this helps

Re: cold sores and pregnancy

Because your pregnant i dont think you can take anything for it yet. But ive heard that a hot tea bag will help it absorbs something in the cold sore and shrinks it remember it has to be hot not warm as hot as you can stand it. Let it sit for about 15 minutes then let it get some air for a few and repeat it again and again. Hope this helps you....Good Luck!!
