For cold sores to heal quickly use the following remedy:
1. Dip a q-tip in rubbing alcohol.
2. Place the alcohol soked end of the q-tip on the affected area. Repeat this step a few times. You You may feel some stinging.
3. Put a dab of preparation-H on a q-tip and put it on affected area.
Repeat steps 1-3 every 3-4 hours.
The rubbing alcohol works to dry the sores. Any liquid with a high alcohol content will work. The preparation-H works to reduce swelling, itching and inflammation.
