Cold Sore Laser Treatment

Treatment for Cold Sores include skin creams, ointments or sometimes pills. These treatments, though effective, can take time for pain relief and the treatment of the area. A more effective way to treat cold sores is through Laser Therapy.

Cold sores, also known as herpetic lesions, are small blisters that form around the mouth and are caused by the herpes simplex virus. They can be both visually noticeable and painful. 

While cold sores typically start to heal within a few days and disappear within a few weeks, the healing process can be slower than other skin blisters due to constant mouth movement. Daily activities like eating and talking can cause the blisters to reopen, leading to repeated scabbing.

Traditional treatment options for cold sores include creams, ointments, and sometimes pills. However, these treatments can take time to alleviate pain and help the area heal. An effective and quick solution is Laser Therapy.

Symptoms of a Cold Sore

Symptoms and warning signs of cold sores may include tingling, itching, or pain around your mouth and on your lips, a fever, a sore throat, or swollen glands in your neck or other parts of the body. After the blisters appear, the cold sores usually break open, leak a clear fluid, and then crust over. They can cause considerable pain for some individuals.

If you start feeling any of these symptoms or experience the tingling sensation that often precedes a cold sore, schedule an appointment for our Laser Treatment. Early detection can prevent the cold sore from developing at all. 

Understanding Cold Sores

Often referred to as fever blisters, cold sores, or herpetic lesions are caused by the Herpes Simplex Virus that is incurable. The virus typically enters the body through a break in the skin around or inside the mouth. It can spread when a person comes into contact with a cold sore or the infected fluid by sharing eating utensils or razors, kissing, or touching the infected person’s saliva. Often, parents with a cold sore can inadvertently spread the infection to their children.

If you have questions about cold sores or suspect one might be developing, please don’t hesitate to give us a call.
