Hi Cold sores (or herpes labialis) are caused by Herpes virus , they are associated with colds and upper respiratory infections . Usually they are left to resolve spontaneously ,however Acyclovir gel can be used to hasten recovery (Acyclovir is an antiviral specific for Herpes virus )

Thanks, Vanities. I was desperately looking for a fast, real fast way of getting rid of it. But it's gone now. Hope it won't come back anymore.

I'm pinoy and I'm from Palawan but currently residing in Thailand. Not much of a mountaineer but I've been to Mt. Makiling 2x and other mountains in Benguet. Too bad I didn't get a chance to hike Mt. Pulag when I was there. I also failed to hike Mt. Banahaw when I worked in Lucban. But yea, I want to be a mountaineer. I'm looking for companions here in Thailand.
