It is Cold Sore Weather!
How do you get rid of cold sores? Or are you one of the lucky few that never gets any?
Looking through the internet for cold sore cures I came across various methods of supposed cures: Vanilla Extract, Toothpaste mixed with Rubbing Alcohol & Salt, Hydrogen Peroxide, Witch Hazel, Coconut Oil, L-Lysine Tabs, Vicks Vapor Rub, Essential Oils, Campho-Phenique and many others that I haven’t mentioned.
My cure for cold sores? Isopropyl Alcohol (Rubbing Alcohol).
I have a cold sore trying to break out which I have been battling with heavy doses of 70% Isopropyl Alcohol dabbed on with a cotton swab. This has always worked before, as long as I got to it quick enough. The cold sore is still trying to break out.
Today I got out the big guns. 91% Isopropyl Alcohol! Yep! It stings a little more but seems to be doing the job. At least it hasn’t quite surfaced to a full-blown cold sore. I feel positive that by this time tomorrow it will be gone.
And I will have won the battle of the cold sore blues.
