Cold Sore Remedies – Easy Ways to Get Rid of Cold Sores

Let’s be completely honest.  Cold sores are gross.  They hurt, they are embarrassing, and they are gross.  I don’t mind saying that as a former cold sore sufferer.  Big, sometimes open blisters on your mouth are gross.  How such a little thing can cause so much pain and anxiety is beyond me, but they certainly do, don’t they?  Today I’d like to talk about some easy ways to get rid of cold sores that will have you pain free in no time.

In fact, as you read every word of this short article, you’ll begin to realize that you don’t need to suffer anymore at all.  There are many cold sore remedies that are both inexpensive and easy to use.  All you have to do is use them.

First, let me say that I am intentionally leaving out prescription drugs and medicated creams from my list.  I find that pharmaceuticals don’t do much of a job attacking the cause of the problem.  They will usually mask your symptoms for awhile, but the cold sore always comes back, meaner than ever.  They also have a tendency to carry some mild to serious side effects that we can all do without.

So, I will be focusing on more natural cold sore remedies that you can use right at home.  When it comes to easy ways to get rid of cold sores, natural is always best.  Some of the more popular remedies are lemon balm, aloe vera, tea tree oil, garlic, witch hazel, and tea bag application.  Anything that has strong anti-viral properties will really get in there and kick this virus in the ass. 

Remember, you don’t need to suffer.  The days of painful outbreaks, embarrassment and anxiety can be a thing of the past.  You just have to take action!
