The herpes simplex, type 1 virus is the culprit that causes cold sores. It waits, dormant until some trigger results in a painful and embarrassing eruption. Cold sores are an extremely common problem, since they are so contagious (they are passed on through saliva), and the fact that there is no cure for the virus. However, don’t panic! There are many remedies for cold sores that speed up its recovery. Read on if you a looking for a natural cure for herpes sores, as we will discuss remedies that are easy to source and won’t interfere with other medicines.
Good old-fashioned whole milk is gentle and soothing when applied with clean cotton wool. Make sure it is well soaked, as fluffy fibers may get caught on cracked skin. Whole milk contains monocaprin, which some studies suggest may slow or stop the herpes virus. Use very cold milk for extra relief from swelling.
At the first sign of a flare up (you know that itchy, tingly feeling?) apply sliced lemon to the area. Many cold sore sufferers say that this staves off an attack, just be sure to use it on undamaged skin only.
Petroleum jelly will bring instant relief to the stinging of cracked skin, so apply it liberally whenever you need to, and extra thick at bedtime. It also protects the sore from airborne dirt and dust entering.
