Home Remedies for Fever Blisters

May 22, 2008



Home remedies for cold sores or fever blisters tip 1 – Fever blisters or cold sores are small red blisters that usually appear on the lips and outer edges of the mouth.

Home remedies for fever blisters tip 2 – Combine equal parts of tinctures of echinacea, calendula, oats, burdock, and lomatium. Take ½ tsp four to fives time a day to soothe the inflamed tissue, remove the toxins from the body and kill the viruses and bacteria.

Home remedies for cold sores or fever blisters tip 3 – If you are someone who frequently gets fever blisters or cold sores, try applying fingernail polish remover every few minutes (it dries quickly) when you are aware of an upcoming outbreak. This sounds extreme (it will not burn unless the sore is advanced), but I have used this treatment for years and apply it with an eye drop bottle and it totally stops the virus from growing into a sore. If you don’t catch it until it becomes a blister, simply use a clean needle to puncture the blister an apply the remover until it appears to halt the growing process and use Abreva until the sore has healed.

Home remedies for fever blisters tip 4 – Dab a drop or two of St. John’s Wort essential oil. It not only soothes, but reduces the pain and speeds up the healing process.

Home remedies for fever blisters tip 5 – Meanwhile, dabbing camphor with cotton ball on the area of the fever blister is another effective way of lessening the duration of the sore.

Tip 6 – Tannic acid is a natural astringent. at the first sign, take a tea bag and make tea. Then take the used teabag at the hottest temp. you can handle and use it as a compress. it does an awesome job of keeping it from getting big and dries it out almost overnight.
