Cold Sore Remedies
What Works Best For Effective
Cold Sore Treatment
you are looking for
cold sore remedies,
please do not spend another dime until you read this.
There are many
of these remedies
in the stores, and even more online. Each product claims to be the answer to
your prayers. You probably have tried some of them. I have.
And, if you are like me, you have been quite disappointed with the cost and
results. Some of the online products cost $60 or more by the time you get
delivery to your door. (The cold sore is well into remission by that time, but
you can save it to try on the next sore.)
cold sore remedies
purchased at the drug store are comfort treatments. They may
contain numbing agents, such as lidocaine, to reduce that stabbing pain. Results
are temporary but a welcome relief.
Some of the salves and ointments may also contain ingredients to prevent
bacterial infection, soothing oils to keep the scab moist (keeps it from painful
cracking) or additives that help dry out the blister in hopes of faster healing.
Comfort is a big thing with these herpes sores, thus many of these cold sore
treatment options can be a good investment.
However, please do not expect these treatments to shorten the duration of your
or speed healing in any measurable way - regardless of some wild claims. In spite
of all the expensive research, no one has found anything to work better than
natural home remedies for cold sores.
you really want to know
how to get rid of cold sores quickly and permanently?
What you need is a good cold sore
treatment plan made up of two or several proven
cold sore home remedies that you have tried and found work best for you.
This plan will be the ultimate key to your success in stopping and preventing
these miserable outbreaks.
You may get great results from a remedy and your
friend will not. Each person has slightly different needs. Varying physical
characteristics, diet, immunity levels, exercise, pH levels and environmental
differences all play a role. You must test and add to your plan those remedies
that you like best.
I stress the importance of a complete plan for
cold sore treatment for two reasons.
1. You may find one remedy to work
wonderfully, but combining another remedy with it can give dramatically
better and faster results. We have seen this many times.
A good example of this is to use an internal
treatment in combination with an external treatment. You hit the virus from
2. Each of the
symptoms may require a slightly different treatment. As
you pass through these stages, a good plan will adjust for it - should it be
For example, ice works great in early stages,
but slows healing in later stages. Then you will get faster results using
Whenever you are
treating a cold sore, be sure always to include an internal remedy to your
plan. Nearly all products in the store and online lack this important element
for your total cold sore treatment plan. What a shame because it can make all
the difference in the world.
Some effective INTERNAL cold
sore remedies include:
Garlic - fresh is best but
capsules work too
Lysine - available in dairy
products, some fish and very economical capsules
Calcium - available in green
veggies and supplements
Olive leaf extract - a powerful,
completely natural, antiviral supplement
Zinc - zinc lozenges work very
well for getting it your bloodstream fast
Some EXTERNAL cold sore home
Garlic oil - fresh is best but
available at the vitamin store too
Olive oil - extra virgin cold
pressed is best
Tea tree oil - smells bad but
Honey - raw is best but any honey
will give good results
Yogurt - homemade is best but
store-bought is fine
Along with these remedies, you will do well to
understand that there are
foods to avoid with cold sores
as well as some remarkable
foods that prevent cold sores.
In conclusion, keep in mind that a true
cold sore cure is seldom a single product but a proven plan that not only
heals outbreaks fast but also prevents new ones from forming.
Also, always remember to include an internal
option to your
treatment arsenal of tested
cold sore remedies.
