Welcome to ask the doctor.If the rash is close to the cold sore, I would like to advise topical antibiotic c ream like mupirocin 2 percent initially followed by a combination of antibiotic and steroid like hydrocortisone.Also, oral antihistaminics like levocetirizine is given for symptomatic relief.Visit your doctor so that he can do a physical examination and give you a prescription.You can share my opinion with him.I hope it helps.Stay healthy
