Cold Sore Help

Cold-Sores-300x270Cold sores are caused by the herpes simplex virus. They are small, painful blisters on or around your lips. Cold sores can last for several weeks.

At the first time of tingling or itching, apply lavender essential oil regularly onto affected area. I have gotten rid of a cold sore within a few hours by applying Thieves essential oils. It burned, but I can tolerate it better by applying lip balm first then the oil. Apply until cold sore is stopped or healed several times a day.
