Yep, many of you can prevent a cold sore from surfacing, but you must be on top of it. When you feel that early warning ‘tingle’, you must take an antiviral medication or apply a good remedy right at the stage or you’re sunk. Take it from my friend, Katie Holmes.
Once it starts to erupt (redness, a small bump, swelling, etc.), the sooner you address it, the better success you’ll have to keep it smaller and heal faster. Results can vary among individuals how well this will work, but also a factor is the severity of the current infection. Super-extraordinary stress and fatigue, for instance, can trigger a more severe infection.
There are FDA-approved medications available, but for those who prefer to go the more natural route, there are options people swear by. Taking lysine supplements is a popular option. You’d be suprised by what some ‘natural’ enthusiasts apply – ear wax! I’ve never been clear if it’s important that it’s yours or can be from a ‘donor’, LOL.
What works great for one may not for another, but a good place to start is to research consumer reviews.
Cold Sores Begone™, a remedy I developed 20 years ago, is a cult favorite, a number of celebrities order it online, and the two most popular health magazines, PREVENTION and NATURAL HEALTH, have endorsed it.
Cold Sores Begone Stick™ is an all natural, organic lip balm and you really don’t want to be without it. When you feel the tingle, apply, you’re good to go. Self-esteem stays intact.
