A virus--ugh!: If you use antivirals they will be gone in 7 days--if you do nothing they will be gone in 1 week. Sorry, but there is some truth to the sarcasm. Acyclovir ointment can be applied to the sores. Anesthetic creams can reduce acute pain. I recommend keeping yourself fit to fight the viruses with healthy foods and proper sleep.

Laser treatment: More and more research is showing that with the proper diagnosis by your dentist, laser treatment of the cold sores can make them go away faster, if untreated it takes 14 days for them to go away with laser the discomfort of cold sore disappears right away and it disappears faster and over time can make their appearance less. Please see your dentist to get evaluated and discuss treatment options.
