Treatment for Cold Sores

For a cold sore to heal faster, use the tip of your finger, lick it or wet it lightly under a faucet and dip it in alum, which is a common seasoning (spice). It will dry up the cold sore more quickly and make it less painful. I know because I use this method all the time!

We use alum for canker sores also. Doesn't taste real good, but it works. (06/25/2004)

I take L-Lysine every day and I no longer get cold sores. Saw this in a doctors office and it really works. (06/26/2004)

I had a doctor tell me to mix a little Benadryl from a caplet with Carmex Lip balm and put it on the cold sore. It works well. (06/26/2004)
