I know that it has been shared many times, but ICE! Ice as soon as you feel the tingle! I try to ice constantly when I start feeling a cold sore. Even when it has already popped up, keep icing, icing, icing. I hold the ice directly on the sore as long as I can and for as long as I can. If I am home, I just hold it on there constantly. It really does stop or at least shorten the duration tremendously. I also put alcohol or nail polish remover on it when I'm not icing.
