Remedies for Cold Sores

Tips and ideas for treating cold sores.

I have found a very good remedy for cold sores. I use a vitamin E capsule. Sterilize a needle or pin and poke the capsule. Squeeze out some of the oil and apply to the sore.

I have good luck taking L-Lysine to help with my dreaded cold sores. I take 2 500 mg tablets when I first feel it. One ever 4- 6 hours after that. Nasty subject but hope it helps others. I buy L-Lysine in the vitamin section at Walmart.

I like to use raw honey dabbed on a cold sore. If I catch it as soon as it starts, I can usually kill it off in a week or less. (depends on how big it was to begin with) (10/23/2006)

A friend told me to rub your finger behind your ear, there is a secretion there that will get rid of Cold Sores. I have only had one start up since she told me this & it worked. I started as soon as I could start to feel my lip getting sore and continued for a day or two & it never developed into anything. The best things about this method it is cheap, portable, easy to apply in public & the high majority of us "Don't leave home without it". Give it a try, what's to lose? (10/23/2006)

I get from the doctor a prescription for Valtrex. I start taking them as soon as I feel one coming, usually takes them away within 2 days. I get 500 mg of Valtrex, and keep it in the medicine cabinet. Just ask your doctor. It works. (10/25/2006)

If you get a cold sore, try rubbing some Aquaphor Healing Ointment over the infected area. You should feel it start to heal the sore right away. It comes in a little tube but a little bit goes along way. My friend told me about this so I went to Wal*Mart and picked some up. (02/13/2008)

What I thinks works very well is (b)-Ice -Salt (/b). You put an ice cube up to your cold sore and use all the ice cube till half way melted then wet your lip a little and pour some salt. (11/29/2008)
