Treatment for Cold Sores


  • 1 tsp. Bactine
  • 1 tsp. rubbing alcohol


Apply to fever blister/cold sore 4 times per day with a Q-tip at first sign of a tingle. The active ingredient in Bactine is benzalkonium chloride. It works wonders. Bactine also has a numbing ingredient also so it takes away the discomfort to boot.

When you get a cold sore, it's cause your stomach Ph is messed up. Find ways to increase ur stomach acid, it will change your life. Hydrochloric acid is what's needed. I've taken it for over 30 years, & it stops the cold sore in it's tracks, like right now. If you find it when it's starting, it never even gets any blisters or scabs & the pain stops right now, too.
