You can't cure a cold sore, but you can alleviate the pain it causes by avoiding spicy or acidic foods, applying ice, and using over-the-counter medicines. Look for medicines that contain numbing agents such as phenol and menthol to reduce cracking and soften scabs. Abreva is an over-the-counter topical remedy used to help speed healing and minimize pain from a cold sore. It must be used many times a day to speed the healing.

Someone put me on to taking the vitamin lysine and also an ointment call quantum lip clear lysine that you can get at any walmart. The vitamin stops it from completely forming and the ointment helps it to heel...and but doing this it shorten the process to 2-3 days from my experience with it .
