Cold Sore Remedies Which Work Quickly and Deeply
The most effective and deeply healing cold sore remedies are homeopathic. Homeopathic remedies only work if they can also edge you towards total health, even in a small way.
Suppressive drugs may look as if they are healing your problem, but they take you further away from total health.
So lets look at taking you towards better health by treating your sores with homeopathic remedies.
Cold sores are also called simplex herpes, vesicles, fever blisters or canker sores. They can appear anywhere on your body, but typically they favour your face or head. Occasionally you'll get it at the bends of your elbows or knees or under your arms.
Mostly they come with a cold or flu, hence the name. But they can be stress induced, too.
Colds and flus typically occur in the winter, when you get least exposure to the sun. Try to get out into the sun as much as you can in winter, and you might find that is one of the best cold sore remedies for you.
But the top two homeopathic cold sore remedies are called Rhus tox and Natrum muriaticum (Nat mur for short). Between these two remedies, probably most cold sores can be cleared up.
For a homeopathic remedy to work, you need to match your symptoms to those of the remedy.
So lets look at their similarities and differences.
Both can have cold sores on your lips, nose, chin or in your mouth.
Nat mur may have a crack in the middle of the lower lip. The sores may appear to be like blisters, or like pearls.
Rhus tox symptoms are red, itchy, swollen and can look angry.
Nat mur cold sores will be worse during the daytime and with heat.
Rhus tox symptoms will be worse in cold weather, better for heat.
So if you can see any similarities to your cold sores, in either of these remedies, try them. They'll not do you any harm, and may do you an extra amount of good, over and above healing your cold sores.
Both of these remedies are best used in a 6c potency (strength), with dosing up to about three times a day. As the sores improve, slow down the dosing.
