How do you treat a cold sore on a 3-year old

Hubby gets them all the time but I've never had one in my life and he is deployed so I cant ask him.. Shes got a cold sore on the corner of her mouth, it's driving her nuts and I feel so helpless!

  • The doctor can prescribe an ointment that you can keep on hand. My son uses blistex- it cools and helps it heal and is over the counter. But let the doctor diagnose it the first time so that you know for sure that's what it is on her, and you will be able to use the prescribed stuff.
