Nobody likes to get cold sores, but for those of us that suffer from them they just become one of those cold, hard facts of life. They seem to show up at the worst moments, and it isn't like they hide themselves on some obscure part of our body, it's more like they pick the most obvious area to display themselves, typically on the face in the area of our mouth. The problem is that, according to the medical doctors, there really isn't anything that we can do to stop the problem. But what is it that causes the cold sores in the first place, and what can be done to stop them?

Cold sores are not a disease, they are, rather, an outward sign of a virus known as the herpes simplex virus. The herpes simplex virus is a distant cousin, but much less evil than the notorious herpes virus, the one that causes the venereal disease, but for those that suffer from the virus it causes a lot of embarrassment none the less. The real problem is that, according to the doctors, there isn't anything that can be done to cure the disease. There are some things that can be done, however, to shorten the life span of the cold sore itself. This would include some drug store creams and pills that either come over the counter, or some prescription medications that you get from your doctor. Others have tried a natural approach to the problem, such as Lysine, an amino acid that is available in a cream or a pill form. It has been shown that using Lysine can shorten the life span of the cold sores and can even prevent them from showing up in some cases.

It's time to cure the cause instead of just treating the symptom. If you are tired of dealing with embarrassing and uncomfortable cold sores then try using our natural method of cold sore reversal and healing, in as little as 3 days. Be cold sore free for life.
