What types of cold sore treatment do you offer?

We offer antivirals — the medicines that have been proven to work on cold sores. They work to stop a virus from replicating which can stop the cold sore from developing or may reduce its size and healing time. Antiviral medications are only available with a prescription from a healthcare practitioner, like those at Felix.

Cold sore antivirals can come in two different forms:

  • topical medication (cream) that is applied directly to the area
  • oral medications (pills) that are taken by mouth
