There are many things you can do to make cold sores disappear. You can buy Abreva. It is kind of pricey, but it actually works. Even try Cold Sore Treatment, because it heals …pretty quick and it takes about 2 days or less. Abreva and cold sore treatment work equally. If you wouldn't like to buy anything to heal your blister, then get a cup and put warm water, then a spoon of salt and mix them until the salt dissolves. Put the salt water in your mouth, and spit it out. Make sure the salt water drips onto your fever blister so that it would make it dry and heal quick. You may also try to put honey on your fever blister. Alcohol and water would help.. Try not to touch your cold sore or peal it off, because it may take a long time to disappear. Also if you touch your fever blister, it is possible for you to get it anywhere on your face. Do not scratch it or rub with anything hard or rough.

Well it all depends if it's inside your mouth or sitting on the surface outside your mouth. If it's inside the mouth, you might want to try mixing some sea salt and lemon juic…e with a bit of warm water. Yes, it taste awful but what this does is allow the sea salt to dry out the sore while having the lemon juice kill the bacteria. If you do this a couple times a day it should speed up the healing process.
