If you are going to use 'sugar' at least make it honey - honey contains antibacterials which can also help with healing.

Make up a very strong coffee solution - one teaspoon to one or two teaspoons of water. Just keep dabbing it on every few minutes or so.
Protect lips with sunscreen in future.

Lysiene

L Lysine. I take 3000-5000 mgs a day for 2-3 days if I feel one coming on. L arginine is an amino acid that feeds the herpes virus. Peanuts and chocolate are loaded with l arginine. L Lysine blocks the virus from absorbing the l arginine. So it goes back to dormancy. Read about it online. Or my favorite book Prescription for Nutritional Healing by Balch.
I've done this many times and it stops the swelling and pain of a fever blister for me every time.
You can take 500-1000 mgs a day of l lysine and it prevents them. I take Now Foods 500 mgs l lysine capsules 1 per day. About $12.00 for 250. It works I've only had 1 or 2 small ones in 5 years.

3-5k mg of Lysine tabs will stop it in it’s tracks, then continue taking thru the week.

Some people would take it seriously. The herpes virus is extremely infectious and potentially life threatening.

I apologize to those I have offended. Sometimes my humor gets the best of me. You are right.
