A great virus killer for surface use is alcohol. It can sting, if you have not numbed it with ice first, but it is the gold standard for keeping a wound clean and reducing infections.

To speed healing even faster, try using some fresh sap from the Aloe Vera plant leaf. Just break off an inch or so of a leaf and apply the sap to the wound. Be sure to use the alcohol, or some other germ killer first. Aloe can heal right over an infection.
Also, do not waste your time on bottled Aloe Vera. It just does not have the healing power. Get a live plant for home - they are available nearly anywhere. Every household should have one. Aloe Vera is useful for a great many things besides a cold sore treatment.
