If you have a cold sore, you know that it can be very embarrassing.  Not only does it effect how you look in public, it can be a very long experience of hurt too.  These experiences tend to come up and the most inappropriate times.  For instance, when you have to present an idea to a board of directors--lord knows what they are thinking about your personal life.  Eek!  Nevertheless, there is no answer to why a cold sore occurs, but I have come up with a few ideas on how to get rid of a cold sore fast.

Here are a few ideas on how to get rid of a cold sore fast:

  • First and foremost, you have to know that if you stop your high risk activities you can stop the problem from occurring.  This can be done by getting informed about your partner's health.  If your partner cares about you, he or she should be willing to tell you if a disease exists in their life.  With this knowledge you are able to bypass the problem.
  • Remember that cold sores are a reaction from bodily chemicals.  Therefore, if you have cold sore know that medication exists.  Go to your health care provider and ask for a solution.  Your doctor may prescribe certain drugs.  But remember there are side effects to all drugs.  Do your research.  This may or may not be the best answer for you.
  • Sometimes all you can do is let the cold sore heal in the time it wants to heal...  Be patient about the healing process.  If you cannot wait, cover your face in a lot of...well...cover up.  Go to your local make-up store and buy the make-up that will save your public image.
  • If you think or feel a cold sore coming up, act now!  Take a hot water bottle and press it on the area that you think will sprout.  Make sure the temperature of the water is just hot enough that it will now singe your skin.  This should reduce the existence of the cold sore.
  • Use rubbing alcohol.  Take a cotton swab and dip it into rubbing alcohol.  Now take the swab and rub it on your face for 5 to 7 minutes.  The alcohol should destroy the chemicals that help create the sore.  Overall, it should stop the ugly disease from showing its face to the full capacity.

These were a few ideas on how to get rid of a cold sore fast.  Before you try anything with chemicals for your cold sore, make sure you consult with your doctor.  Since they are well educated, they may be the person(s) that will save your social life.  Nonetheless, good luck with getting that sore off your face.
