L-lysine can cure cold sores

A whole milk compress on your sore can help speed up the healing, and ease pain because milk contains proteins known as immunoglobulins, which are anti-bodies that fight off and prevent viruses-like cold sores. It also contains l-lysine. L-lysine helps prevent the amino acid called arginine, which has been shown to cause outbreaks. So to prevent outbreaks of cold sores, drink whole milk which will give you your dose of l-lysine. To help cold sores that have already erupted, make a whole milk compress to soothe the pain and fight off the virus.

Soak a cotton ball in approximately 1 tablespoon of milk, and apply it directly to the cold sore for several minutes.

What is the best way to get rid of cold sores: quickly

Flu, Influenza, Cold, Virus, Sick

Cold sores are very, very annoying.  How do you get rid of them?  How do you stop the stinging?

There are so many sprays, ointments and balms out there.  Which one should you choose?

Look through to find some solutions to your problems and avoid possible causes.


Natural remedies

Ice may does not get rid of the cold sore, but it does ease the discomfort and inflammation of cold sores.

Apply a cold pack directly to the sores for temporary relief.

Vanilla extract is a natural cold sore remedy. It makes it hard for the virus to thrive and can either wipe it out or lessen its severity and duration. Start applying it the second you feel the tingling set it.

Soak cotton pad or swab in vanilla until thoroughly saturated. Apply directly to the cold sore, holding the swab or pad in place for a minute or so. Repeat four times each day until no longer needed.

Product reviews

Customer review, written on 9th September 2016:
“It’s the only product I use when I get a cold sore, and I’ve tried many over the years. The difference with Bio-propolis is that it keeps the lips moist while healing the cold sore. I also use it when my lips are dry, it seems to coat the area with moisture, wonderful.”

“I have been using Bio-propolis cold sore ointment for many years now and wouldn’t use anything else. Brilliant for cold sores, the ointment keeps the lips moist ensuring the cold sore heals up quickly. Also good when lips are dry.”
