Now this might sound horrible, but when you feel a cold sore forming put ear wax on it and it will never grow. My whole family does this and it works great.

Submitted by E. Carter: I use to think my mother was crazy when she told me to put some ear wax on my cold sore at night before I go to bed...till this day I have not had a cold sore since I was a teenager...try this I promise it works!!!

Where the heck do you get the earwax? Are you supposed to be able to dig ebough out of your ear at the required moment.....or do you save it up until you need it?

A pharmacist also told me about this one and it works for me. A small amount from a q-tip is enough.... Even if you keep your ears clean. Gently swipe a q-tip when you clean and rub onto the affected area.

This has worked for me plenty of times. It is better if you catch the sore at the tingling stage then it won't appear at all after using the earwax. Other peoples ear wax won't worl for you only tour own.

I have tried this method as well. It works for me. When I am cleaning my ears with a q-tip, I rub it on the area.It never breaks out! A lot of ear wax is not needed. I have very little sometimes and it still works!

I'm desperate to get rid of this cold sore A.S.A.P and I will try ANYTHING. So I'm gonna suck it up, and try this ear wax remedy. I hope it works, because I would hate to put earwax on my lip for nothing. :(

I read once that at the first sign of a tingle, rub your finger behind your ear and then on the site where your sore is about to emerge.

I didn't believe it would work but used it and guess what? NO SORE.

this is unbelievable. For someone who has suffered from amazing amounts of sores in the past I can tell you that I'm a believer.

I don't even think you need to have ACTUAL amounts of ear wax......just whatever is on your skin behind your ear works for me. The body's defenses are amazing.

hope this helps someone.
