The big day is finally almost here. It doesn't matter which day it is, could be prom night, or perhaps family pictures, maybe even your wedding, but the cold sores have come to the party. You couldn't imagine a worse time to have them, but they don't seem to care one bit. Add to that the fact that cold sores pop out on the most conspicuous part of your body and you have a recipe for disaster. What is it that causes cold sores and is there an effective treatment for cold sores that you can use at home?
Cold sores are actually a symptom of the herpes simplex virus, a distant cousin of the nasty venereal disease herpes, but a lot less sinister. In fact it is thought that most people are carrying the herpes simplex virus but most of them never break out with a fever blister, so they are never contagious. Of course that is little consolation for those of us that have had a nasty old cold sore show up on our faces. Is there are treatment for cold sores that you can use at home?
Aside from all the drug store and pharmaceutical garbage that is available at the drug store there is one natural treatment (among many) that you should give a try. Some people have said that using the amino acid Lysine topically can shorten the life span of the cold sore, and when applied to the area right before the breakout it may just prevent the cold sores from coming out in the first place. It may or may not work every time but it is worth a shot.
It's time to cure the cause instead of just treating the symptom.
