I have a red spot after having a cold sore on my lip. What is the best treatment to help the scar go away? Mederma?

In brief: Depends on where...

Hi there, to adequately answer your question I would need a couple more pieces of information.
(1) where exactly is the red spot? By that I mean is it on the red smooth "inner" part of the lip or is it on skin on the "outer" part of the lip? (2) how long ago did the cold sore go away? Mederma can work if it is on the outside, but not inside the lip.
