Patient :I have a question about cold sore healing?? Okay well my cold sore scab came off recently and left a pink patch of skin. Sadly I am FREAKING OUT. I have prom this week and have a giant very very noticeable pink patch of skin left by the cold sore. Is there any treatment i can use to make it heal faster? I have prom this Friday.
Symptoms: the skin is sensitive, pink, sticky and very dry. Its bumpier than the rest of the lip.
