Cold Sores Product Review

Cold sores, fever blisters, oral herpes.

Cold Sore Product Review:

Novitra

Another company jumps on the cold sores and zinc bandwagon.

Zinc is an excellent treatment for cold sores, no doubt about that. It is well known as the healing mineral and works very well against herpes simplex virus. Taken internally in small quantities (50 mg.), zinc will help your body heal faster and is a powerful support mineral for men's prostates and sexual organs.

Zinc comes in many different forms.

The zinc oxide form you may have seen is the white ointment that lifeguards used on their noses and ears to prevent sunburn. Worked great for that but is of no value to you because the zinc oxide particles are too big to enter the skin when applied topically.

Zinc sulfate is a smaller particle and the type of zinc used in Novitra. This seems to work quite well as a topical cold sore remedies. You will see very good results with your cold sores from the use of Novitra.

Novitra, as far as cold sore remedies go, is expensive - much more than need be. At about $12.95 for a scant quarter ounce there are much better choices.

You may have heard of zinc lozenges for the treatment of colds. They provide zinc in the form of zinc gluconate that absorbs quickly through the mucus membranes of the mouth when you let them dissolve. I have read of one remedy for cold sores in which they suggest holding one of those lozenges on your cold sores and letting it dissolve this way. I haven't tried it but it seems like a lot of hassle.

In my opinion, if you want to use zinc on your cold sores, is to use a product called "Zicam".

You get a half-ounce of product for only about $7.95 and it's available just about anywhere today. A much better buy than Novitra - and I think a much better treatment for cold sores.

It's a zinc gluconate product (Zincum Gluconicum 2x) that has been sold as a cure for the common cold - and it works great for this. It will stop the common cold right in its tracks!

Zicam is a nasal delivery system - applied in each nostril, the zinc gluconate absorbs into the bloodstream in mere seconds through the mucus membrane. Applied to your cold sores, it will absorb instantly, and start the healing process.

This is, by far, the best zinc product for a cold sore.
