You have probably tried countless solutions for your cold sores; from lotions and potions to simply hiding behind a turtleneck sweater. Can herpes be cured? Well, at present, there is no cure for herpes. The herpes simplex type 1 virus that causes oral herpes stays in the body for life, triggered to flare up now and then by factors such as stress or illness. But, can cold sores be treated quickly? Absolutely. Read on for some great ideas that although not herpes cures, will bring some relief, and hopefully speed up your healing time.
Petroleum jelly is such a useful product. It soothes chapped and broken skin effectively (you may have seen it being applied to the cuts of boxers to halt bleeding during a fight). When applied to a cold sore, it will not sting at all, and will lubricate the cracked skin, so that the pain you feel when you move your mouth will diminish greatly. As the jelly is thick, it will also protect your sore from airborne dust and debris.
If the pain of a cold sore is driving you to distraction, it’s probably time for an ice pack. This will soothe the burning and itching, as well as help to deal with the swelling. Effective and natural, this is one the cheapest herpes cures for cold sores.
If you are looking for a solution that is more aggressive towards your cold sore, but natural and safe, then Herpeset could be what you need. This is a spray that targets all of your cold sore symptoms at one: swelling, pain, itching, cracked skin, burning and redness. It is fast acting since it is quickly absorbed into the body, yet it is gentle enough on your body to be used for prolonged periods of time. All of Herpeset’s ingredients are natural – no synthetic content whatsoever. There is capsicum for pain relief, woody nightshade for treating swelling and purple coneflower to ease stinging and redness, among other active extracts.
The really great thing about all-natural ingredients is that Herpeset is not known to react with any other drugs or medicines. It is regulated by the Food Standards Agency, which will give peace of mind to many. We scoured many reviews of this product and were impressed with our findings.
