Is it OK to pop a cold sore?

No! Never try to pop cold sores. You may have seen YouTube videos that show you how to do it, or maybe you read advice elsewhere that it's ok to try and pop cold sore. Regardless, you should never try to pop them. There are several reasons why you shouldn't, and many of them are just common sense. Here are a few:
  • Popping the cold sore could cause other areas of your face to break out in additional cold sores.
  • If you pop a cold sore it's going to take much longer for it heal.
  • Not allowing the cold sore to heal because you've popped it will prolong the healing process.
  • Popping it creates a scenario where the HSV1 virus can more easily be spread to others.
It may seem like a good idea and we definitely understand why you would want to try and pop the cold sore, but don't; let nature take its course and heal the cold sore for you. The best way to treat the fever blister while it is healing is to apply ice to it when it is hurting and to always keep it moist with chapstick or Carmex.We hope this helps!
