Home remedies for COLD SORES (2017/03/23)



1. A cold compress can help to relieve the pain, but it does nothing to prevent the cold sore
from reoccurring. some used to use Lysine, but there is little evidence to suggest that this
works permanently. Other remedies such as nail polish remover (ouch!), vitamin oils and
changes in your diet are not much better.

2. Use Echinacea and goldenseal extract mixture. Echinacea is an immune system booster
that can also prevent a cold sore outbreak. Take one dropper-full a day for no more than 3
days. Also put a few drops on a cotton ball and place on the affected area for a few
minutes several times a day.

3. Lemon balm contains a high concentration of polyphenols and appears to minimize
herpes outbreaks. It can be applied topically in cream form. Or brew as a tea lemon balm
can be taken internally as it has antiviral qualities.

4. Covering the cold sore will help a lot – try to avoid using any make up or lipstick while it
is there as this may make it worse, but covering it with petroleum jelly has relieve the
symptoms and prevent infection. In the summer, protecting your lips from the sun can
help – likewise in the winter protecting them from the cold may also help.

5. Olive leaf extract is good as a natural antibiotic for viral infections.

6. L-Lysine fights that virus that causes cold sores. Take 500 mg twice a day.

7. Vitamin B complex is very important for healing and immune system functions. Take
100 mg of each major B vitamin twice a day.

8. Place a small amount of salt on the cold sore and hold it in place with your finger for a
minute or two. this may be painful but it is one of the quickest ways to heal cold sores.

9. Cut garlic in half and place one part on the cold sore. A compound in garlic cold Kyolic
has antiviral properties which speeds healing. Take 2 garlic capsules a day.

10. Soaking a cotton ball with mil and dabbing it on the sore has been effective for some
people – this may be something to try out too.
