Alternative Fever Blister Treatments

While nothing can make a cold sore virus go away completely, here are some items to treat it's appearance.

Using a Q-tip dab on:

  •  Aloe vera gel
  •  Tooth Paste:  apply in a thin layer over the spot and alternate the treatment with rubbing alcohol.
  •  Listerine
  •  Garlic:  every 10 minutes rub half a clove over the spot
  •  Nail Polish Remover:  While this does give good results, do not overuse it.  Too much can cause skin damage

Make sure to keep your lips moisturized.  Never pick at the scab.  And, while it's not pretty, once you see blood on the spot the virus is again going into recession.
