In brief: Maybe

If this is the first time it is more responsive to some of the anti viral medications.
If this is a reocurrence of a cold sore it is more resistant to treatment. I would call your doctor because the medicine is prescription. Either way it still will likely take several days to a week. But it still can reocurr.
