Cold - ice or an icepak will reduce swelling. Heat packs should not be used until the tissues have regained normal skin temperature, which usually takes 2 or 3 days.
Cold compress or ice pack (frozen peas or something else similar).
Swelling should always be treated with COLD compress, not hot. But if the swelling persists or returns, see a doctor to find out what is causing it.
There are no over-the-counter products which have been found to shorten the length of cold sores after initial appearance. Only prescription antivirals, such… as Zovirax or Valtrex along with ointments like Zovirax or Denavir have been found to effectively prevent or treat cold sores. These products will shorten their appearance from 10 days to about 5 days.

Cold sores are caused by one of the two herpes simplex viruses (the one that causes face and mouth sores). They usually make their appearance during or just after a cold or fl…u. There are lotions available to relieve inflammation, but there is no treatment - you simply wait them out.
Hot usually works best, but try them both and use whichever one gives you the most comfort.
Applying a cold compress against the outside of the cheek. Do not use heat, because it will tend to spread infection.
ONLY USE COLD WATER for a swollen eyelid. Hot water stimulates the cells and makes it more swollen.
