Manage your Cold Sore with Oral Health
Cold sores are a common, and often frustrating, ailment. They are caused by the herpes simplex virus and can be treated with over the counter medications or home remedies.
Here are some tips to help rid yourself of a cold sore:
– Clean the area around the cold sore with soap and water.
– Apply a cold, damp cloth to the sore for 30 minutes at a time, three times a day.
– Apply an over-the-counter herpes treatment, such as acyclovir or famciclovir, to the sore every 12 hours.
If the cold sore is very large or has a pus discharge, see a doctor. Cold sores can be contagious and can cause pain, itching, redness, and blisters in other areas of the body.
