Hello. Thank you for your message.
To help your cold sore outbreak heal quickly, try holding a cool, damp cloth against the sores. This can help make your sore less red and crusty and help it to heal a bit faster.
Cold sore ointment (like Abreva) is available over-the-counter, and when it's applied frequently, it can shorten a cold sore outbreak.
Prescription medication can be prescribed by your doctor.
