In brief: Time
There are no good cures for cold sores other than the fact that they will resolve spontaneously.
Current medications, at best, work poorly.

In brief: Abreva
My patients get good results with an over the counter cream called abreva.
It is expensive but works well. Apply to cold sore twice a day to shorten the duration. If the cream is applied as soon as you feel the 'tingly' sensation of a new cold sore, it can stop the sore from appearing.

In brief: Diode Laser
A diode laser will speed up the healing without drugs.
You'll have to see a local dentist who is equipped with the laser. http://www.amdlasers.com/media/articles/Diode_Laser_Treatment_of_Oral_Lesions.pdf
