Research Discovers Proven Ways To Get Rid of a Cold Sore Print E-mail

Amazing ways to get rid of a cold sore.  You no longer have to struggle and waste money on cold sore remedies that don't work - and never have.  Keep your money and get rid of your cold sore.

How to get rid of a cold sore is easy when you understand these well-proven strategies.  Do not be sidelined socially ever again.  You can finally take control of your cold sore events.

Cold sores are the result of the process of replication of the herpes simplex viruses - type 1 or 2.  During the creation of new clones of itself, the herpes virus destroys many nerve cells on the surface of your lip or nostril.  Millions of destroyed cells make up the unsightly cold sore ulcer.

The herpes virus is normally latent deep in the nerve cells.  It will ONLY come alive and start replicating when it senses the conditions are just right.  Mental and physical stress are considered the cold sore triggers.

Stress causes changes in your system that will provide the perfect environment for virus replication.  The main changes that we need to address today are alkaline to acid shift, using up B and C vitamins and pulling the immune system sentries to another area of your body.

The body can and will get rid of a cold sore without any help from us.  But who wants to suffer for 3 to 4 weeks, when we do not need to?

Here are a few proven tips to get rid of a cold sore in much less time than you may be used to.

1.  GIVE THE VIRUS THE COLD TREATMENT.  Beginning at the first itching sensation until the cold sore actually opens up, the virus is replicating.  Applying ice, or any cold item, will discourage the virus from continuing.  It really works.  Makes the area feel better too.

2.  COLD SORE VIRUS HATES LYSINE.  Lysine and arginine are the two main amino acids that play a role in cold sore virus replication.  The more lysine you take, the less arginine will be stored in your cells.  The virus uses arginine as a building block for new virus.  If the virus does not find enough arginine in the cells, it will give up and go back into hibernation.  Normal lysine dosage during a cold sore is 2000 to 4000 milligrams per 24-hour period.

3.  WIPE OUT THE VIRUS INVASION.  You will put a huge dent in the virus army by sterilizing the wound with hydrogen peroxide or alcohol.  Peroxide is my favorite because it also adds extra healing oxygen.  This will help you get rid of a cold sore quickly.

4.  DO NOT BE AN ACID LIP.  The cold sore virus loves acid and hates alkaline.  Avoid acid foods that may touch the cold sore - like vinegar products and tomatoes.  Try to encourage your body toward the alkaline side by taking a good quality vitamin and mineral supplement.  The minerals in particular, such as calcium, are critical for this.

Before I go, I would like to share with you a couple things that will further help you get rid of a cold sore.

Everyone should be taking a vitamin and mineral every single day.  It helps you on so many levels, to prevent cold sores and other ailments.  The minerals help maintain an alkaline body, and the B vitamins help reduce stress.

Also, a final word on the ice treatment.  Ice works great if used prior to the actual ulcer.  After the cold sore opens, then using warmth will get more healing blood to the area.  This alone can shorten healing by 50%.

Without a doubt, there are many more great tactics you can use to help you get rid of a cold sore, but these are well proven and will help you get a quick start.
