I have had a lifetime of these blimmin things! I have tried rubbing alcohol, meths etc - PLEASE don't use any of this kind of stuff, it will damage your sking - I have severe scarring as a result, 30 years later, they are still there:(

I have been down the road of every pharmaceutical there is - I thought Zovirax was a miracle, until I became immune to it.

The absolute best product I know of, and I have been ordering now for a long time, is from a New Zealand Company, called Simply Essential. The product is Virasoothe - either the cream formula, or the concentrate. Both are amazing. Definitely the best thing I have found in my 50+ years of dealing with the damn things

Vegemite works great! From when you feel the first tingle or whether its blistered cover the area with vegemite and it will disappear. It worked for me overnight. Although because it is so salty it does hurt. But totally worth it.

I have suffered with cold sores on and off ever since I could walk. Having been a shy and rather stressed out child, I always got them the days leading up to birthday parties or times were I knew I'd be involved with crowds. Like most chronic sufferers, I've tried everything under the sun. The best remedy I've found thus far is the prescription Valtrex as soon as you feel the tingle (I was prescribed to take two then and two more 8 hours later). That usually stops them in their tracks. When it doesn't, after having used the Valtrex, I am CONSTANTLY (hourly) applying ice, then tea tree oil, then raw honey, and oil of oregano every second cycle, with plain Vaseline before bedtime! I've found that the raw, natural, and as-unprocessed-as-possible versions of all of these work the best. My last cold sore before this regime was monsterous! So bad that I was asked if I had been punched in the mouth. I started this application ritual and my cold sore was GONE within 48 hours. Blisters, scabs, redness, everything. Gone. Another reliever that I find helps if scabs do develop is InfiniteAloe Skin Care lotion. Its certified having been made with natural ingredients and helps take the burning away. I hope this helps!!!

For cold sores to heal quickly use the following remedy:
1. Dip a q-tip in rubbing alcohol.
2. Place the alcohol soked end of the q-tip on the affected area. Repeat this step a few times. You You may feel some stinging.
3. Put a dab of preparation-H on a q-tip and put it on affected area.
Repeat steps 1-3 every 3-4 hours.
The rubbing alcohol works to dry the sores. Any liquid with a high alcohol content will work. The preparation-H works to reduce swelling, itching and inflammation.

Bust the blisters on your cold sore then put table talk and a minty toothpaste on the open sore.
BE SURE NOT TO LET THE INFECTION LEAK ONTO YOUR SKIN BECAUSE IT CAN SPREAD THE VIRUS TO OTHER SPOTS!!!!!

I have tried so many things and even the ones that worked a little (like Hydrogen Peroxide or Abreva, etc.) still took days to work. The best thing I've used is this stuff called EasyHeal. I think you can get a free trial if you use code FREETRIAL at CloudburstBotanical.com or maybe it was just at the page that's cloudburstbotanical.com/free-easy-heal

I'm not sure. Sorry! But google it. It's great.

Almost always, when I use the EasyHeal stuff, my cold sore doesn't even surface. If I don't start using it before it surfaces, it still goes away faster than anything else I've tried. I love it. It has saved me.

Is it just me? Has anyone else tried it?

1000mg coconut oil and 1000mg lysine everyday and sunscreen directly on and around your lips before sun exposures will change your life forever! If you have a cold sore increase the dosage to 3 times a day until gone. Hope this changes your life like it did mine!
