Cold sores are caused due to viral infection. In most cases cold sores do not require any treatment as they are self limiting. However application of antiviral cream can help speed the healing process. Treatment becomes essential if there is secondary bacterial infection. In such cases antibiotics are useful. You should consult a physician if the cold sore do not heal in a week's time or develops secondary infection.
