Hi Divas ,
Cold Sore is always annoying and painful and sometimes are embarrassing .After eating Eggplant usually I got one cold sore
or during the winter time. I don’t like them and now let’s see Grandma Susan ‘s
How she treats Cold Sore.
Peppermint oil may help to kill the virus that is causing your cold sore which will shorten the duration.
It is important to start using this oil as soon as you notice a cold sore to get the best results.
Use a cotton swab and a peppermint oil that is all natural and high in quality.
Apply this oil directly to the sore after cleansing the area with plain water.
It is a good idea to use some water to dilute this oil to reduce irritation.
Milk is very soothing and it also contains L-lysine .
An amino acid, that may cause an outbreak. By inhibiting this amino acid it works to quickly heal your cold sore.
The pain and discomfort of a cold sore is also alleviated by the milk.
You need a cotton ball and one tablespoon of milk and then apply this right on the cold sore and hold it in place for at least five minutes.
Petroleum jelly attacks cold sores the exact opposite way that alcohol does.
This jelly will soften the skin that is irritated due to the cold sore because it contains natural emollients.
This jelly is also very thick so it helps to protect the cold sore from bacteria so that you reduce your risk of experiencing a bacterial infection.
This type of infection will make a cold sore last a lot longer, so using this jelly as a protector reduces how long a cold sore lasts.
Use clean fingers to put a thin coat of this jelly directly onto the cold sore. You can reapply all throughout the day until it goes away.
Vanilla smells great and it adds plenty of rich flavor to foods, but it also has potent anti-infection properties
which aid in healing the viral infection responsible for cold sores a lot quicker. This extract also works to reduce cold
sore pain because it is a natural anti-inflammatory. Make sure that you do not use any artificial vanilla because it will not work.
Take 100 percent pure vanilla extract and put a couple of drops onto a cotton swab or a square of sterile gauze.
Apply this directly to the cold sore and coat it very well. You can repeat this
Hope one of them will work for you because Milk helped me a lot but if you are allergic
to any of these Items don’t use it and skip it and consult your Doctor.
