Coldsore Treatment

Cold sores look like blisters filled with fluid and pockets under the surface of the skin. They appear normally around the mouth or the lips. They last for 7-10 days and they break open, crust over and ooze for the entire period. Cold sores are contagious until they have crusted over completely. They can be very uncomfortable, painful and can hinder you from enjoying activities.
