    Vitamin E may help soothe and heal a little but I am shocked at you Dr. Oz, that you did not say or mention L Lysine. I lysine an amino acid not only helps them heal and go away but taken regularly helps them stay away. Yeehaw, no more cold sores in the mouth or on the outside.

    Vitamin E does wonders for the last stages of a cold sore, when it is in the scab stage, I put JASON extra strength vitamin E oil on it and I could see it starting to heal within hours.
