There’s a theory floating around that came from New York University, that too much stress can help to worsen cold sores.

She was the one to visit his son Kazhem’s grave this year… alone.
While a lot of 90 Day Fiance fans hate that the Russian still supports Geoffrey, she certainly seems determined to wait out his sentence of 18 years. Open and direct, she supports those who stand against the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Plus, she talks about her daily life as she copes without Geoffrey. Sometimes, she gets very candid.

Varya could try Apple Cider Vinegar or lemon balm. But Health Line notes that it should be watered down. Their website reports that “research from 2015 suggests that using lysine won’t prevent the occurrence of a cold sore, but it doesn’t hurt to try.”
You could also try essential oils like peppermint, tea tree, or clove.
