    There is no any fast remedies for cold sore. Usually cold sores might disappear within 8-10 days.Yea you can get abreva, it won't treat quick but helps the healing process.. or shorten the healing process by 2-3 days faster.

    I have heard that Tea Bag does well, but not sure, you can try it. Just apply a tea bag for few minutes on the area and repeat every 2-3 hours. Or alternate is to apply warm tea bag for 30 minutes.

    Why don't you try petroleum jelly, It might work.Or if you really want to make it disappear for awhile just put lipstick to your lips to make it invisible in the eyes.

    Default They are also called fever boils

    Hi there

    I think you should first treat the underlying problem, otherwise you might suffer from recurring cold sores. You might be suffering from slight flu like condition which is remaining unnoticed.

    For the present condition, keeping the sore lubricated will help to heal fast.

    This 'Abreva' sounds very popular over there, interesting. I'd say our equivalent would be Blistex.
