Herbal Remedy for Cold Sore
When you have a certain illness, you always resort to medication… sometimes surgery. But actually, you need to resort first to the non-pharmacological methods before you proceed with the pharmacological process. Cold sore remedies need not be expensive. Here are some tips on herbal remedy for cold sore without having to worry about your expenses:
a.) Aloe vera
Aloe Veras have this soothing compound which will lessen the sore. Get aloe leaves and use the liquid content inside and rub it slightly on the sore or blister. Do this procedure once in the morning and once in the night.
b.) Tea tree oil
Same as aloe vera, tea tree oil also has the same soothing effect. Just take a cup of boiling water and add tea tree oil, violet and herbal sage. Mix it all together drink this according to your preference and in two days it can eliminate the sore.
c.) Vitamin B
Vitamin B is a nutritional supplement found in pork and other meats. Vitamin B-12 particularly aids in the alleviation of cold sore.
Other types of herbal remedy for cold sore [http://permanent-cold-sore-cure.blogspot.com/2007/09/cold-sore-cure.html] include the use of ice, which is the most practical way of resolving a cold sore. When you feel a blister coming, you should remedy it immediately. Apply any cold application or ice bag/pack every 10-15 minutes at a time, 3 times a day. Although some people might find resolution in this method, basically, the effect of this treatment is to lessen the pain by means of vasoconstriction. It acts as a natural “pain killer”.
