Hi Chris. From the picture I would imagine they are probably cold sores. There are non-prescription preparations you can get over the counter from a pharmacy. The pharmacist may also be able to confirm or deny. Best wishes, Peter A

It looks like it could be cold sores. If you have a health food store near you, you may want to try L-Lysine. I have had wonderful success with L-Lysine.it takes away the pain. And it clears up the sores.good luck to you!!

I am positive it is a cold sore. Grab Abreva from any pharmacy and it should go away 2 weeks tops. This looks like the first ever outbreak my ex had. I have been dealing with cold sores at a very young age, before I was even sexually active. Mother had them too so I'm guessing she kissed me when she had an outbreak and infected me 😠

Cold sores! Apply Prosurx cream to ease pain and symptoms. Stress, hot or cold weather, and poor diet can trigger new sores. Thus, you need to add more Lysine in your diet. Take bulletproof deep immune support to boost immunity in order to fight viruses.
