Fast acting natural treatment for a cold sore? Thanks!
ginger with castor oil
If you are going to use 'sugar' at least make it honey - honey contains antibacterials which can also help with healing.
I meant use an ice cube. Ice it. Auto correct
Oil of oregano
Make up a very strong coffee solution - one teaspoon to one or two teaspoons of water. Just keep dabbing it on every few minutes or so. Protect lips with sunscreen in future.
L Lysine. I take 3000-5000 mgs a day for 2-3 days if I feel one coming on. L arginine is an amino acid that feeds the herpes virus. Peanuts and chocolate are loaded with l arginine. L Lysine blocks the virus from absorbing the l arginine. So it goes back to dormancy. Read about it online. Or my favorite book Prescription for Nutritional Healing by Balch. I've done this many times and it stops the swelling and pain of a fever blister for me every time. You can take 500-1000 mgs a day of l lysine and it prevents them. I take Now Foods 500 mgs l lysine capsules 1 per day. About $12.00 for 250. It works I've only had 1 or 2 small ones in 5 years.
Lemon balm tea is anti viral
Annette VaughanAnnette, yep, I just got over shingles and drank lemon balm tea and took 3 000 mg's of LLYSINE, I also did Accupuncture and got rid of the pain and healed mostly in 4 days, by day 7 it was all gone.
3-5k mg of Lysine tabs will stop it in it’s tracks, then continue taking thru the week.
I second Lysine I always take 4 tablets when I get the tingle of a cold sore and then one daily till I don’t feel the tingle anymore. Stops them coming x
Dab it with tea tree oil every 3-4hrs, it will be gone in 2 days.
Dab it in bicarbonate of soda and it will be gone within 24 hrs
L-Lysine BEST IN THE WORLD 1000mg if you have one taken on empty-tummy with water or juice 2-3,times a day Maintennce 500mg a day
CBC oil did wonders.
Dab your finger in bicarbonate of soda, apply on the cold sore before going to bed, gone in the morning.
First thing I put on is Peroxide. It stops the pain, pulsing. Then coconut oil- you can add frank or peppermint, even lavender
tea tree oil
Works for me every time.
Make a paste with olive oil and a capsule of echinacia herb.... Use alot and take lysine.
Salt and cold water
It's not natural, but campho fenique in liquid form when applied every hour or so, will heal a cold sore in a couple days

Tamara Roberson it was a light hearted joke.
Some people would take it seriously. The herpes virus is extremely infectious and potentially life threatening.
I apologize to those I have offended. Sometimes my humor gets the best of me. You are right.

Organic apple cider vinegar/ baking soda
I make a mix of colloidal silver, wild oregano oil and DMSO. Gets rid of them real quickly.

Myrrh Gum Tincture and Golden Seal Tincture works really well for cold sores. Zinc too. Cold sores are a sign of a weakened immune system.
