Cold sores are a bit of a heavy Monday topic. At least that's the staff's opinion. But I like the idea that folks who deal with cold sores may now have at hand something to speed healing.
Approved by Health Canada, the Zeno CS unit ($129), promises to help fast-forward through the cold-sore cycle with controlled doses of heat. Administered via direct contact with the tip of the hand-held device, the heat causes no pain yet destroys the active viral cells. Zeno CS clinical trials reportedly showed that four-minute treatments every four to six hours healed cold sores in about three days, half the time it took for untreated outbreaks to diminish.
