Anyone got any tips on curing my cold sore?

I have an awful cold sore, I get them from time to time, usually about once every 6months or so. But this one is horrible. Anyone have any tips on making it smaller or making the burning feeling go away? Please help its horrible!

  • Releev is the best thing I've ever used, along with taking Lysine tablets.

  • Lysine!!! It's a mineral found in the vitamin section. I now use Arbonne's Lip Service. It helps dry up the sore as well as heal the skin.
