In order to get rid of fever blisters or cold sores fast, you should start the intake of 1000mg L-Lysine daily during the first signs. This can be bought at the drug store but the entire 1000mg dose should not be taken in one dose, there should be a space on the amount that should be taken for the whole day. The area should be washed with hot water every 2 hours and a non-comedogenic soap should be used. Dry the area with the use of a paper towel but this should not be reused since this could increase the chance of getting an outbreak. A thin layer of Abreva can be applied after each wash. Washing and application of Abreva should be continued every two hours. And with the intake of 1000mg L-Lysine daily, the fever blister will vanish in 3-5 days.
