If you are looking for cold sore remedies, you have my sincerest sympathies!
I know first-hand the pain, embarrassment, and frustration that goes along with suffering from a cold sore/fever blisters outbreak.
I've dealt with the task of getting rid of cold sores for years, and I've come across a number of different remedies - both natural and medicinal - that help to varying degrees.
Having said that, there are some natural remedies for cold sores that I consider to be a "must" for all, and that is nutritional supplements that strengthen your immune system.
If you are prone to cold sores, you have to face the fact that you have the Herpes Simplex virus and will have it for life. The virus that causes cold sores lays dormant in your body when your immune system is strong, and rears its ugly head from time to time when certain triggers come into play.
Obviously, keeping your immune system strong is your best defense against an outbreak of the virus, but if you've been under additional stress or your immune system is down, you're likely to have a problem.
These are some of the supplements that I take immediately if I get that little tingling sensation that indicates the beginning of a cold sore...
I take my supplements at least twice per day until the cold sore/fever blisters are completely gone, and even for several days afterward.
