Relief From Cold Sores

Cold sores, which are also called fever blisters, are caused by the type 1 herpes virus. It is contracted by person-to-person contact, such as sharing utensils or kissing. This virus stays dormant in your nerve cells until you have a breakout in which blisters or irritation occurs around the mouth area. Do not confuse cold sores with canker sores. Canker sores appear inside the mouth on soft tissue, where as cold sores appear around the mouth, nose, and sometimes on the gums.


A cold sore breakout typically lasts about 10 days. If it lasts longer than that, you should consult a doctor immediately. There is no known cure for cold sores, but there are various treatments to control it. Try to avoid instances that may trigger an outbreak, such as not getting enough sleep, prolonged exposure to the sun, and getting a cold or the flu.

I have found a book that uses proven natural techniques to get rid of cold sores within 3 days of a breakout. It is very inexpensive, and worth every penny if you suffer from cold sore outbreaks. This is the best information that I have found on the topic of cold sores. Click the image below for more information.
