A cold sore can be an extremely painful condition. Constantly reminding you that they are there, the slightest touch can be very uncomfortable.
There are many cold sore remedies that can be found online and over the counter. The old adage often applies that a cold sore will go away on its own in 14 days but using these cold sore remedies will make it go away in 2 weeks.
The zero-sum nature of these treatments can be frustrating, leaving many sufferers feeling hopeless once they detect the onset of another sore.
There is a different option, however. In the early stages of a cold sore or herpetic lesion, laser treatment can be effective in eliminating the pain and shortening the healing process. Early treatment can help you avoid a week of pain, embarrassment, and frustration!
