How to reduce scars appearance from cold sore?

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone. After my cold sores heal, the skin is still very red for years sometimes. I am going through this right now and it does not look great. Has anyone had experience in reducing the scars caused by cold sores.

The best advice I have found on the internet is covering the scar with sunscreen and being very patient, or some kind of scar gel. I am hoping someone can chime in though with actual experience from herpes caused scars. Thanks!

That really doesn't make sense. I've never heard of cold sores resulting in any visible scar tissue. And a scar is not typically red. Post a picture.

How do you upload a picture? I keep trying to and it says it is over the max kb allowed.
