  • zync oxide....i just had a monster one two weeks ago and with the zinc oxide it was gone in a week. don't buy the expensive cold sore remedies cause if you look at the ingredients zync oxide is the only active ingredient and you can get a huge tube for a couple dollars

  • Abreva works great - it should be available at any pharmacy or health and beauty aids aisle.

  • Toothpaste.  Put a little dab on it and it dries it up pretty quickly.
