What is Cold Sores and How We Can Cure Cold Sores?
The herpes simplex virus is one of the most common types of disease found in North America, Europe and Australia. This virus is very contagious and appears as a blister on the sensitive parts of human body.
Type 1 virus occurs on the body parts above the waistline and type 2 virus occurs on the body parts below the waistline. Blisters are known to occur on the face, nostrils, lips, neck, ear, etc. This visible occurrence of blisters presents an emotional problem to many individuals. These blisters may reoccur at any time before it becomes dormant.
Once a person is infected by this cold sore virus then there is no permanent cure available on the market. One can only make the virus dormant and hope for the best.
A cold sore takes 9-12 days before entering into the remission phase where the virus becomes dormant. These blisters are known to create emotional problems because of its constant reappearance and the visibility of the sore. There are cures which make the visible blisters dormant.
If you are affected right now it is important that you seek medical advice and get treated for the cold sore. It is very important to learn the basic nature and structure of the virus to combat it effectively from inside and outside of the human body.
Humans suffer from cold sores because of unhealthy lifestyles, oxygen deficient bodies, acidity, stress and strain, and excessive exposure to sun, consumption of junk food, chocolates, poor immune system, etc.
The immune system should be strengthened from the inside to combat this virus effectively. The immune system can be improved if you practice healthy habits such as avoiding junk food, reducing smoking and drinking (alcohol), etc.
White blood cells in your body are the primary defence against all viruses and diseases small and large (even cancer). Exercising your body helps it stays in shape and also improves your metabolism and improves the oxygen level in your body.
The technical name for cold sore/fever blister is Herpes Simplex Virus type 1 (HSV-1). This virus is transmitted through humans in the form of saliva, oral contact, dead skin, utensils, etc. It is very important that you are conscientious to not transfer this virus to anyone else.
Secret Methods to Cure Cold Sores
Cold sores are caused by the Herpes Simplex Virus type 1 (HSV-1). This virus lies dormant for the most part of its life but when it gets triggered it attacks the sensitive parts of the face. There is not a lot that is more embarrassing than having a big open cold sore on your lip.
There is no limit for this virus; it can attack continuously any number of times. If you are facing a cold sore for the first time, then you need to consult your doctor for advice. One common method to make the virus dormant is to use DMSO (Di methyl Sulf oxide).

Dimethylsulfoxide liquid has the ability to permeate living tissue. This gel is available in various concentrations.
Generally, it is recommended to use 70% concentrate cream (do contact your doctor about exact guidance). Results also have shown that people using DMSO had a quicker recovery than non-users. It is a potentially safe liquid and it is useful for recurrent herpes.
DMSO medication can be used in conjunction with other medications such as oral acyclovir. It is generally recommended that DMSO be used on alternate days or every other day. Please read the DMSO disclaimer and also take advice of your doctor before using these products.
