Finding The Natural Cold Sore Prevention Approach

By Lardingo Dardine

A slight throbbing in the lip is known all too well to sufferers before a full on outbreak of the puffy, painful forming of an unsightly blemish. Either triggers of unprotected sun exposure or the body being stressed can be the cause and are sometimes difficult to avoid.

A healthy immune system is key to natural cold sore prevention. Below, we are going to give you some prevention tips.

Boosting your body's immune system with your diet is an easy way to naturally prevent cold sores. Lysine, zinc and vitamin C are all effective in natural cold sore prevention. Zinc, as well as Lysine are often found in meats, seafood and eggs.

Vitamin C is easily available in many fruits including oranges, lemons and grapefruits and in vegetables such as carrots, tomatoes and more.

These greatly helpful nutrients can be easily obtained in supplements. Although food is the best quality, it is very difficult to get therapeutic levels of them through diet alone.

Echinacea is a great natural cold sore prevention supplement that can be found easily. As soon as you start feeling the symptoms of a cold sore, grab your Echinacea and take as directed. It also can be used to help with asthma and allergies.

Some people with the herpes simplex-1 virus don't always show symptoms, like blisters. So, when you're dining out at a restaurant. Always make sure your glass is clean and you use a straw to drink from, just in case there's viral cells on the glass from a previous patron that was carrying the herpes virus.

Kissing and sharing items like eating utensils and chap stick are common ways that the herpes virus gets transmitted from person to person. Your Mom probably told you not to share these things, and she was right!

Whether we realize it or not, your health depends on the simple choices you make. Avoiding these common mistakes is a perfect way to practice natural cold sore prevention.
