They make topical medication for cold sores that you put on when you start to feel like you're going to get one.

Yeah, but by the time I notice, the lip balm is infected.

Throw away the balm and use the medicine

The medicine, at best, makes it go away faster. So does lip balm. I know because I've tested it. The medicine is maybe slightly faster than lip balm, but lip balm tastes better. Especially for someone sensitive to mint, when pretty much every product associated with the mouth is mint flavored. sigh
