How To Prevent Cold Sores | The Natural Home Remedy Way

Cold sores, also commonly known as fever blisters, are characterized by groupings of small, red, swollen blisters that appear on the lips, around the mouth, and occasionally in other places on the face. Healing time averages anywhere from a few days to several weeks depending on how and how fast the sores are treated. While there are prescription medications available to treat cold sore symptoms, because these painful blemishes are caused by a viral infection (HSV-1 and HSV-2), there is as of yet no cure. Fortunately, there are quite a few natural home remedies to help combat cold sores that are both inexpensive and very effective.

How To Prevent Cold Sores | The Natural Home Remedy WayHome remedies from 1-9 are ranked in order of highest acclaim with ideas 10-12 offering general cold sore advice.
1. L-lysine
L-lysine (also frequently called just lysine) is an amino acid that prevents the replication of the HSV virus. L-lysine can be applied as a cream or ointment directly to cold sores.

 

It is also widely used in supplement form to prevent outbreaks. While the dosage recommended by those who have used L-lysine to prevent and heal cold sores (anywhere from 500 mg / day to 1000 mg / week) it is always good advice to follow the directions on the packaging or consult with a physician if you are unsure.

To treat existing cold sores, you can purchase Quantum L-lysine ointment here or if you don’t like the greasy feeling of ointments, the same company makes L-lysine cream. For prevention of future cold sores, L-lysine supplements are available for purchase from this page on Amazon.

2. Ice Cubes
HSV thrives in wet, warm places which explains why cold sores around the mouth are so common. To stop the virus in its tracks, apply ice directly to the blemish. If you begin this treatment immediately at the first sign of a cold sore – usually a tingling sensation where the blister is about to form – it is sometimes possible to stop the cold sore from surfacing entirely.
