There are many different treatments for cold sores. And there are some advantages to using a laser on a cold sore:
- No anesthesia needed
- Can decrease the pain, oozing, bleeding, and unsightly appearance of the cold sore.
- May prevent the cold sore from coming back as often
There are also many medications (over-the-counter and prescription) that can have varying effects on the profoundness and the longevity of cold sores. And each treatment, including laser treatment of cold sores, will have different effects on different people. Ask Dr. Moore which treatment may be right for you
