hey Teresa reporting back omg this works!!! i had it on for about an hour and got sick of the taste so i washed it off..the salt takes the swelling down to.. it's kinda dried but i only had it on for an hour so i'll keep doing this! the bad part about it is my bottom lip where there is no cold sore is getting chapped kinda like the salt is eating my good lip.. lol but hey i would rather have a chapped lip than a cold sore! thx

OkI tried it , I needed a quick fix, as I had a date in 3 days, lol, I ended up going to my docs after trying this method, cause after I did this it became even more swollen.
My doc ended up giving me a prescription for it and it cleared up in 2 days.
P.S. the salt thing hurt like hell!!!!

Salt is the only thing that worked for me. My doctor gave me a presciption, which I've been taken, but the pain, swelling, and infection were still there. I have one on my lower right of my bottom lip and one inside my left check. I was tired of feeling feverish and even my body ached. I starting surfing the net and found a few sites where SALT healed cold sores. I tried it today and have been applying it as a paste. I already feel relief. It is is starting to dry up and I'm no longer feverish. Why don't doctors tell you these things? THANK YOU !!!

I have been trying everything I could think of. This morning my mom told me about baking soda and water so I tried that and you could feel a little difference but not much. So I decided to look on the internet for home remedies and came across this page. Right now I have this salt paste on as I am typing this up and I can already feel a big difference in my cold sore. Yes, it is BURNING LIKE HELL, but I really do think this is going to work. Thanks for the hint!!!

I wouldn't recommend trying this if you have an event coming up or if you work as a receptionist at a front counter. I did this and the cold sore became swollen and HUGE. It was so red. I looked like I got socked. It just looked realllly awful.
