Problem 1: If I get a cold sore that’s bad enough to form a scab the scab becomes thick and impenetrable. Questions: – Am I right that Abreva is useless if applied to the outer surface of a scab? – Is it always a bad idea to touch a scab with the intention of loosening it? – Is it always a bad idea to pick off a cold sore scab? – Is there some way of scrubbing a sore when it’s at the weeping stage to prevent a scab from forming?
