So, this topic is directed toward all of y'all out there that have cold sores, also known as Type 1 Herpes.
I'm fairly sure I just got one (my second), as I tend to get one every year, and I know the symptoms.
I've read through various medical websites, and have discovered many homeopathic ways to treat the sores. Mine is still in the "tingling" stage, but it won't for long.
One of the methods I have tried so far is to take an ice cube and hold it with moderate pressure to the sore, until the cube melts. Afterwards, dry your skin off and dab some alcohol on the sore to disinfect, and repeat. I believe it said that this will slow the spread of the virus.
Is there any truth to that? I'll be going on a 2-day field trip on Thursday, and don't want to have to constantly worry about not touching my mouth. Plus, those of you that have gotten cold sores know that they look disgusting and hurt!
Basically, I'm looking for any homeopathic (like, not including medicines) remedies for cold sores. Thanks y'all!
