What Works Best For Effective Cold Sore Treatment

If 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.)

Most 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 cold sores 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.

Do 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 both sides.

  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 necessary.

For example, ice works great in early stages, but slows healing in later stages. Then you will get faster results using heat application.

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 remedies include:

  • 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 works well

  • 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.
