Cold Sore Treatment
- Supercharged Ice
by Denny Bodoh
Still the most widely used cold sore treatment is ice.
It actually works better than many store bought cold sore remedies - IF USED
PRIOR TO THE BLOSSOMING OF THE COLD SORE. It
not only relieves pain and other troublesome symptoms but is a powerful
The herpes virus hates cold and has a
difficult time replicating in a cold environment. Like giving the
virus a cold shower. As you probably know, it
is the replication of herpes virus that creates the oral herpes outbreaks we
call cold sores or fever blisters.
This replication process usually will cause symptoms such as fever, swollen
glands and pain. Ice works well to relieve all these symptoms.
Apply ice for
10 minutes at a time to your cold sores, maybe 4 times an hour, as a very
basic cold sore treatment.
Now, let's supercharge this ice treatment.
Tea in bags is a cold sore treatment that many folks use with excellent
success. Black tea, green tea or herbal teas have all provided very good
results. I prefer herbal tea mixtures that contain mint or lemon balm.
My cousin and fishing partner, a doctor at Mayo, introduced me to this method. Give it a
Soak 4 or so tea bags in water, then freeze them. Use them instead of ice.
You get all the benefits and comfort of the ice remedy. Plus, you are
attacking the herpes virus with the anti-viral phyto-nutrients in the tea.
Not only are you causing the herpes virus to retreat from the cold, but also you
are knocking them out as they retreat.
Dr. B stated that you can sip tea as an internal cold sore antidote. He
suggests putting about 4 teabags in about 20 ounces of purified water and
making a strong tea. Then freeze the tea bags for use as stated above. You
then can sip the tea occasionally as a medicinal.
On a final note. The tea
bag should be used warm after the cold sore opens up. Ice will still feel
better but warm will help it heal faster.
BUT - the best treatment is prevention.
About 4 years ago a lady at a seminar
revealed her cold sore treatment to me. Up until then I would get about 4 to
6 cold sores per year. I tried her quick and very easy natural home remedy
and it has turned out to be the best cold sore remedy I have ever used. Not
only did it totally heal that cold sore in less than 3 days BUT I
HAVE NOT HAD A COLD SORE IN 4 YEARS NOW.
It was truly the answer to my prayers. Maybe it will be for you too. Check
a quick and easy home cure that works!

The scenario is all
too familiar: You feel a tingling on your lip and a small, hard spot that
you can't yet see. Sure enough, in a day or two, red blisters appear on your
lip. It's another cold sore, probably happening at a bad time, and there's
no way to hide it or make it go away quickly.
Cold sores — also called fever blisters — are quite different from canker
