I've had a cold sore for 8days, it's a cluster on my lip that is disgusting! To say the least it's in the stages of being dry, what should I put on it so it doesn't leave a scar?

Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

They say cold sores are three days coming, three days here and three days going so you're certainly on the mend.
If you are uncomfortable and looking for over-the-counter help, then lidocaine might be your best bet. For future outbreaks, taking prescription Valtrex formulated for cold sores can stop the outbreak completely. It's very effective when taken as soon as you feel that little tingle.
