Take some White toothpaste (not the gel kind) and apply it to the cold sore before you go to sleep or when you will not be seen by other people and let it stay on there for a few hours. Then you'll notice that it's gone. I'm not sure how this works but it does and I've tried it a few times so maybe it can work for you too. My friends told me about this ages ago and it really works.
