Cold Sore (Herpes Simplex 1) Natural Remedies

by L. L. Smith

The herpes virus affects the body's nerve cells, making you break out in painful sores. It tends to be recurrent and shows up again when you are under stress or sick. You can also spread the virus through kissing.

To speed up the healing process of a cold sore, cut a clove of garlic in half and rub it on the sore. Not very pleasant, but effective.

Mix 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar with 3 tablespoons of honey and dab the sore with the mixture 3 times a day.

Try some "nutty butter" - grind a few walnuts and mix with 1 teaspoon of cocoa butter, apply this salve to the sore twice a day. It should be gone in three or four days.

Take one L-lysine 500 mg tablet daily. It my inhibit the growth of herpes viruses. Or, eat flounder - one pound of flounder has 11,000 mg of lysine!

This one sounds rather gross, but several people across the country claim if you use your own earwax on your cold sore or fever blister, it will help.

Try this when you first feel that tingling sensation that tells you a cold sore is on its way: Paint the area with colorless nail polish. It prevents the sore from blossoming.

The polish peels off naturally within a short time. A dermatologist recommended this unique remedy to Cyndi Antoniak, a producer for MSNBC.

She used this remedy successfully some time ago and has not needed to use it again.
