Top Home Remedies for Cold Sores


Cold sore home remedies give you consistent, reliable results every time and for far less money than any remedies you can purchase. This is true whether prescription or over-the-counter treatments. And, unlike prescription anti-viral drugs, the herpes virus does not mutate and become immune to these cold sore home remedies.

It is very important to keep in mind that there are internal and external treatments. You will get excellent results with either one, but any smart cold sore treatment strategy will incorporate both types. That is the real secret in getting rid of cold sores quickly and painlessly.

Throughout the pages in this highly focused web site, you will find many cold sore remedies you can try. Some will work better than others for you. Weed out the good ones and put together a strategy that works best for your unique needs.

Most of these treatments are free, or nearly so.  I am happy to share them with you, uncovered from nearly 20 years of research on this subject.

Every disease has a remedy in nature. Here are a few good, natural cold sore home remedies that you should try.

  •  LYSINE -- Lysine is a common protein but it is truly awesome in dealing with any herpes related sores. Lysine for cold sores is an internal treatment. It is available to some degree in most foods, but not enough to be therapeutic in treating these sores. Dairy products are some of the richest sources. Wisconsin dairy products are much richer than most other dairy, in respect to lysine and calcium.

    Most people choose 500 milligram capsules of supplemental lysine from the vitamin store. It is extremely inexpensive and easy to find. It does not absorb as well as food source lysine, but it is much easier to adjust and keep track of the dosage levels.

    You might see lysine in some salves or lotions for topical use. These products may be fine, but do not buy them for the lysine effect. Lysine must get into the blood and cells to do its job. It does not absorb very well when put on the sore directly, and is not a good choice for effectively treating a cold sore.


  • GARLIC - Garlic is a very versatile and powerful remedy. You can use it as either an internal or external treatment. It is anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal. Use this great cold sore remedy both ways for excellent response.

    Fresh is always best with garlic. Slice or crush a clove and rub the oil on the blister area. If this is too strong for your skin, crush some garlic and mix it with extra-virgin olive oil. This will buffer it a bit. For convenience, you can also get garlic oil soft-gels at the vitamin store. They are easy to take orally. Also, each soft-gel is a single topical application. Just pick it and squeeze it on the sore area. You can put some olive oil on first if you wish.

    If you just don't like garlic smell, buy some oregano oil in soft-gels and use the same way - internally and externally.  It won't work quite as well as garlic but you will get pretty good results.  Many people claim it is their favorite for treating cold sores and not bothering others at work.


  • PEPPERMINT -  Peppermint has an amazing effect on cold sores. Many folks report complete healing in just a few days. This is most useful as a topical remedy.

    You have several options in using this very pleasant treatment. You can get peppermint oil soft-gels at the vitamin store very cheap. These are very handy. Each time you want to treat the sore, just poke a soft-gel and squeeze on the sore, or apply with a cotton tip.

    Peppermint herb can be crushed and applied. More convenient yet is peppermint tea bags. They are effective even if the peppermint has other herbs or teas mixed with it. Soak some tea bags and freeze them. Use these in the early stages when you would normally use ice. Once the healing phase starts (the scab forms), use hot (as warm as you are comfortable with) tea bags held to the sore for 10 minutes at a time.


  • ACIDOPHILUS - Lactobacillus acidophilus (meaning acid-loving milk-bacterium) is the most common type of acidophilus. This has produced excellent results both as an internal as well as an external remedy.

    Acidophilus is plentiful in raw yogurt and other fermented milk-based products. Unfortunately, pasteurization not only kills the bad bacteria but all the health-giving good bacteria like this as well. (The same problem as taking antibiotics.) Some yogurt manufacturers put it back in after the process of pasteurization. People report quick healing by putting yogurt or milk on their sores.

    You can buy acidophilus capsules that offer billions of live bacteria in each capsule. This is the most convenient and sure way to use this remedy. They have to be kept in the fridge to remain live and viable. You will benefit by taking it orally, but always with some dairy product - cheese, milk, etc.. Also, get some plain yogurt and empty several capsules into it. Stir in good and you have created an awesome topical cold sore home remedy.

Your key to success is having a complete cold sore treatment plan that includes both external and internal remedies.

External remedies give fast, direct results. Because of the painful, embarrassing nature of these sores, most people focus almost entirely on finding the best topical treatment. Most companies know this and that is what they offer you.

Internal remedies do not work as fast, but are reliable and powerful over a longer period. They dramatically boost the benefit of any topical remedy, and they are the only way to actually prevent these sores.

A single special oil or salve is not the answer. Even if the product does work well, you have to keep buying it over and over again. This is not how to heal a cold sore for best results.

Reminds me of this wise quote "give a person food and they will eat for a week, but give them knowledge and they will never be hungry again."

Better to have a good plan that, once you have it, you never have to buy it again. Everything you need is free for your use on this web site.

If you are in a hurry and just do not want to take the time and cost of trying different things, you can use a plan that is already designed, tested and put together for you. It is a very good plan indeed.
