Cold sore on my lip. Cures?

Laser: The best way to heal a cold sore is the use of the biolase laser. The pain will be relieved quickly and the sore will heal quickly. If you have the area treated during the early stage of a cold sore when you feel a burning or itching the cold sore will not come back to that area again.
