Getting cold sores every week?!? Please help!?

I really need advice. A year ago I started getting cold sores more often (I’ve gotten them before) but now a lot more often like 1-2 times every month...soooo I saw my general doctor and she prescribed a acyclovir cream and a daily valacyclovir pill for me to take. I’ve been taking it for 2 months and it’s not helping at all... I’m getting cold sores once a week or every other week. They only appear under my nose and right above my Cupid’s bow but not on the actual lip. I set an appointment to see a dermatologist but due to COVID they can’t see me for 2 months. What other medications or treatments are there?? The blister never seems to fully go away on the surface and I can see it hiding right under my skin which is why I’m always having an outbreak. I need help!

    Topical treatment needs to continue until is not only gone but for a couple of extra days.

    Meantime, consider your diet. A well balanced diet increases your ability to fight this and prevent reccurence.

    Reducing atreaa cas also help.
