Cold sore scar, best way for it to fade?
Hi,

I recently had a cold sore that scabbed and healed over but it left this nasty lil pink blotch on my upper lip. It's not huge but it annoys me and I think it's the scar left after the cold sore. Is there any way to make this scar fade fsater or any medications/lotions I can use for it?

Thank you

Hi,
Ther are no medications to cause scars to fade. How-ever you could try a Vitamin E cream available in pharmacies, which may hasten the process of fading . You could also try OTC creams and patches available, but whether it really helps is a matter to debate on.
For the discomfort associated with cold sores you could try Over-the-counter (OTC) ointments, such as topical lidocaine or benzyl alcohol (Zilactin), which can help ease discomfort.
