Cold sores are small sores, or blister-like lesions, that appear on the lips, chin, cheeks, inside the nostrils, and less frequently on the gums or the roof of the mouth. They usually cause pain, a burning sensation, or itching before they burst and crust over.
They are often called fever blisters. The most common cause of cold sores is the herpes simplex type-1 (HSV-1), but sometimes the herpes simplex type 2 (HSV-2) can cause it. In the U.S., between 50 and 80% of people have oral herpes, making them potentially susceptible to cold sores.
There’s no way to cure or prevent cold sores; however, steps can be taken to help lower their frequency and duration.
Cold sores can be prevented with a large dose of vitamin C, or else 35% H2o2.
The proteins in L-lysine can also treat cold sores, as can a 3-day water fast. Lavender essential oil can also be used to help treat cold sores; you just need to dab a few drops on the affected area. A freshly-crushed garlic clove will help soothe the stinging experienced from a cold sore as well.
Gargle 3% food grade H2O2 a couple of times a day, fasting as well if you can. Colloidal silver is also a good solution to the problem of cold sores.
Take olive leaf oil capsules 1 day for 2 months, and then cold sores will start to vanish. My partner suffered constantly with them and now he has none. Keep taking it if you have further breakouts until you don’t get them anymore. Plus, it helps boost your immune system.
If cold sores are still a problem, taking 35% food grade peroxide will help as well.
