Cold Sores

Cold Sores can appear on the lip or nose, can be triggered by stress, sun exposure, and illness; but how do we treat them and keep them gone? Eighty percent of the population has HSV that causes cold sores, but fortunately not everyone will have a flare up. When flare ups occur it is difficult to treat them in a timely and effective manner. 

Dr. Colombo,here at Skintap, recommends Aciclovir that not only treats an active cold Sore but can be used as a preventative treatment. If used right away Aciclovir can shorten the duration of a Cold Sore, and can keep the virus at bay to ensure there are no flare ups waiting under the skin. 

Here at Skintap we are happy to offer this treatment option at an affordable price right from the comfort of your home. Start your consultation with one of our Board Certified Dermatologists to receive the best treatment option for you!
