I get them to. Fever blisters is a form of herpies. They are caused by stress, the sun, when you are sick, and your hormones. I had two fever blisters in one week one went away and another came up. It happens like that when my hormones are all out of wack.

I get them EVERY TIME before my period! It never fails, but the only thing I can do to barely control them is to use Abreva(it about $15, pretty pricey), but if I don't catch them when they are just starting out, they will take just as long to go away.

Remember, not everyone’s cold sore(fever blister) is triggered by the same thing. But there are seven common factors that may cause your cold sore outbreaks. Want to avoid them before things get ugly? Read on.

Fight Fatigue
Like stress and illness, fatigue can sap your immune system, making you easy prey for a cold sore outbreak. In today’s hectic world, feeling “beat” can give cold sores the advantage. So relax.

Exercise. Sleep. And give your immune system a fighting chance.

Stay Calm
Sure, stress messes with emotions. But stress can also wear down your immune system, giving that dormant cold sore a chance to launch a sneak attack. Fight the urge to stress out. Instead, breathe deeply and relax.

Keep Warm
Protect yourself from the cold. Wear a scarf or pull up that turtleneck to avoid exposure to cold weather, dry air and winter wind that can dry out lips.

Shade Yourself
Go on the offensive against sun exposure. Ultraviolet (UV) rays can damage your skin and lead to a cold sore. So fight back with a good sunscreen, a wide brimmed hat and a beach umbrella.

Know Your Hormones
For women, hormonal changes during the menstrual cycle can trigger an outbreak. Pay attention to your own hormonal cycle to manage stress. And give yourself a fighting chance against flare-ups by keeping a tube of Abreva handy when you’re feeling that your hormones may trigger an outbreak.
