Use milk of magnesia, you can find this in grocery stores or pharmacies (Food Lion, Rite Aid, etc.). Shake well and put some on your cold sore using your finger. You should feel your cold sore start to throb a little and the milk of magnesia will dry after a few minutes. Since it is white, you should put on before you go to bed and wipe it off with a wet rag in the morning. Your cold sore should go away within a couple of days. Works really fast!
