cold sores

I'm not sure if this is the right place to post, but I couldn't find a specific board for this health concern.  I rarely get cold sores on my mouth, but when I do, they are bad.  I have one right now.  Does anyone have any good remedies for getting rid of them or preventing them?  They really hurt and they look awful.  Thanks for your help.

I know my mom gets them quite often when she is stressed, I've only every had two of them, but the doctor suggested Abreva, and the research I did also recommended that treatment. When I used it, it seemed to clear it up quite quickly.
