Visitors: 194

Having a cold sore fever blister is very unpleasant and people who suffer from them might not want to use over the counter treatments and will favour more natural treatments instead. Many of these natural remedies for treating cold sores are based on herbs and other naturally occurring substances.

One remedy that can be both useful in helping to reduce the pain of cold sore fever blisters is ice which not only assists in reducing the pain but can also prevent the blisters from spreading further. If you want to use ice you should apply it to the area which is sore and leave the for up to an hour, you must make sure that you do not directly touch the skin with the ice as it could give you a nasty burn.

Scientists have also discovered that using Lemon Balm Extract can be used to treat cold sores and using it will not only soothe the inflammation and pain of cold sores but it can also shorten the length of an outbreak.

Lomatium extract is another type of herbal remedy that can be used to treat cold sores effectively, however you should make sure that you use the extract and not the tincture as it is more potent. Native Americans have used this substance amongst others in the fight against cold sores for many years.

Or perhaps you would prefer to make your own mix of various herbs in order to create your own cold sore treatment. One mix that can work well is calendula, lomatium, oats, burdock and Echinacea as this will have a beneficial effect on the sores. Use approximately half a teaspoon of this four or five times daily and you will soon notice the results as your cold sores begin to reduce as will the pain.

Janine Battye is a writer and researcher into cold sore fever blisters. She runs an informational website on getting rid of cold sores, and recommends the cold sore fever blister guide as the best information on safe and fast cold sore treatment.
