Have a cold sore on the nose? Want to get rid of it? Want to stop it from bothering you again? All the answers will be found after you read this article. Cold sore is a common skin disease that occurs on various places on your body, including the nose. It’s caused by herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) while type 2 of this virus (HSV-2) is related with genital herpes.

How to treat the cold sore on the nose

Though normally the sore will disappear without any medication, having a cold sore on the nose is very embarrassing for most people. There are some mainstream prescriptions for cold sore but they are capable more at shortening the period by a day or so than working really effectively. Here are some nature and home treatments that can work better for you. These methods have been proved by many people who have cold sore troubles, but because they are not officially approved by FDA, you should consult your doctor before applying them.

First I’ll recommend petroleum jelly (the higher concentration, the better). It’s such a simple and inexpensive remedy that many people may doubt before using it. Since it’s no harm to your skin, why not have a try? Dab small amount of petroleum jelly on your sore will make it moisturized and prevent it from cracking out which is painful. It also accelerates the healing process.

Next treatment is about the diet. We have the knowledge that diet affects the health. In this case, you should eat more food that contains lysine, such as fish, yogurt, vegetable, cheese, beans. Avoid eating chocolate, nuts, gelatin, oats, etc. that contains arginine. Lysine will shorten the duration of the outbreak and help prevent it from occurring at the first place (Unfortunately, the sore may occur at another place later). You can take lysine supplement as alternative which is available at local drug store.

Another simple and wonderful remedy for cold sore is witch hazel. Apply it on the infected site with a cotton ball or q-tip as frequently as possible. It will shorten the healing process and prevent the blister from spreading to other parts of your body.

Taking vitamin C is also helpful to the trouble. Vitamin C can boost the immune system, so it’s best to take the supplement at the beginning of the cold sore outbreak. If you miss that time, you can still take it as it can reduce the cold sore duration. Also, food that rich in vitamin C such as orange, kiwi, lemon and broccoli can be taken as alternatives.

How to prevent the cold sore on the nose

Knowing the spread of the cold sore is the first and the most important thing to deal with it. You must avoid close contact with someone who has cold sore or carries HSV (If someone has had cold sore before, he/she is a carrier).

You must make up your mind to eat healthy diet from now on, keep away from the arginine-rich food that can help the growth of the cold sore. I know it’s not easy to do because some people don’t just want to give up favorite food. But when you realize that healthy food doesn’t mean tasting bad, I believe you will finally know the benefit.

Stress and fatigue is the common trigger of the cold sore. Especially for someone who works under huge pressure, spend time to relax and rest is very important. Impossible to do? Listening to light music for half hour every day, rearrange your schedule to make sure you sleep at least 7 hours a day really are not very hard and can be a good beginning.

I’m sure these tips above will help you a lot to treat and prevent cold sore on the nose once you suffer. But because cold sore is a recurrent problem, it’s be much better if there is a way to stop it from bothering you in the future.

Normally, cold sore will self-heal in 8-14 days, but using proper meditation will shorten the period. In this post, I’ll take you tour around the stages of a cold sore so that you can know well about the course, identify at which stage your sore is and treat it in right way.

Stage 1 – The Latent Stage

This is the sleep stage of a cold sore. When you are infected by the cold sore virus (often referred to as herpes simplex virus type 1), the symptom doesn’t show up immediately. The virus may stay in your body for weeks even years under defense of your immune system. When there is a trigger such as stress or fatigue in your body, the virus will break through the body guarder and cause the outbreak of the cold sore.

Stage 2 – The Prodrome Stage

At this stage, the virus is activated and travels to the surface of your skin. The virus starts its reproductive cycle to create copies, this causes your target skin itchy, burning and tingling. Though there are no visible symptoms, it’s best time to start treatment. ABREVA is a proven medication for cold sore, you can apply it on the infected area from this time.

Stage 3 – The Blister Stage

The visible sign of a cold sore appears at this stage as a result of virus reproduction. A cluster of small vesicles gradually multiply and enlarged. They are sometimes red bumps and hard pimples that are painful to touch. Garlic oil is a good anti-virus remedy to treat the blister, softly rub the garlic clove on the sore will help you. If you have a sensitive skin to garlic, put an ice cube on the sore is an alternative.

Stage 4 – The Ulcer Stage

In all stages, the ulcer stage is the most painful and contagious period. All the vesicles now break open and create a big weeping ulcer whose surface becomes gray. If the outbreak is severe, you may have headaches, fever, even swollen glands under your jaw. New virus are often accompanied the fluid from the sore which is contagious. You must be extreme cautious about the virus-rich fluid. If the virus spreads to other parts of your body, it can be very dangerous.

Stage 5 – The Scabbing Stage

After the ulceration, you could notice your cold sore change into a scab or crust. It’s still contagious stage and when you eat or move your mouth, the scab may crack and cause pain. Cover the scab with petroleum jelly several times a day help to keep it moisturized. Better substitute is tea tree oil or olive oil. Under the scab the sore is healing, don’t remove the scab until it drops off by itself. Ice can be used during this stage to relief the pain.

Stage 6 – The Final Healing Stage

Now the scab has fallen off and been replaced by the reddish new skin. The healing process is still under the skin. You may still feel irritated. You are not fully healed till the red spot fade away. But disappearance of these symptoms doesn’t mean the virus is totally killed. Unfortunately, the virus will stay in your body for the rest of your life and if there is another trigger, the cold sore will happen again.

Cold sore is a contagious disease that caused by herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1). It often happens around and in your mouth. There are many ways people get infected by this virus, such as sharing eating utensils or using same razor with infected people or kissing them. Then the virus will easily make its way to the nerves and stay quiet in your body waiting for a trigger causeing an outbreak. Common cold sore triggers include: mental stress, deep sadness, strong sunlight, cold wind, emotional upset, fatigue, injury on the infected area, Menstruation, etc. When the HSV-1 is activated, the cold sore will appear. The painful, tingling and itchy feeling will follow the self-healing process of cold sore. Besides, imaging there is a blister or sore around your mouth when you meet friends, lovers, co-workers in your daily life, I guess you can’t feel more embarrassed right? It’s the most common reason why people are so eager to find out how to get rid of a cold sore fast. You don’t want to wait 7 to 10 days for the cold sore to be healed by itself.

Now I will share 7 tips to help you get rid of a cold sore.

Tip #1. Don’t pick, pinch, squeeze, or even touch the cold sore: Sounds easy, right? But it’s hard to do for many people who can’t endure the itchy, tingling sense. The best way to do it is focus your mind on something else such as work, TV, music. Because if the sore is broken, there will be a further infection that make the situation even worse.

Tip #2. Use petroleum jelly: When you have cold sore, you may feel dry on the infected area. Petroleum jelly will moisturize your skin and keep the sore from drying. This is an inexpensive way heal the sore faster and better.

Tip #3. More lysine, no arginine: The virus needs arginine to create new ones. On the contrast, the lysine will stop it from reproducing. I think you already know what to do, right? You can eat more high lysine foods like fish, yogurt, vegetable, cheese while avoid high arginine foods like nuts, chocolates, gelatin, oats.

Tip #4. Taking Vitamin C: Vitamin C is well known as an immune system booster. When taking it, your white blood cells will be activated and function as an antiviral production to kill the HSV-1. It’s widely used to fight diseases including the cold sore. Often eating natural providers like kiwi, strawberry, parsley, orange, pineapple is the most natural and healthy way to supply Vitamin C to your body.

Tip #5. Ice: Applying ice is one of the most effective methods to help you get rid of a cold sore. Just wrap an ice cube and put it on your infected area as soon as the syndrome comes out. By using this, ice can reduce the metabolism of the HSV-1 and push the virus back into dormancy. You should not use it too long to cause frostbite.

Tip #6. Less exposure under the sun: Just like some hibernating animals will wake up in the sunlight, so as the HSV-1. Sunlight will not only activate the virus, but also can make the sore crack which is really painful. To avoid this, you can use a sun block especially with SPF 15. There are many brands on the market, choose the one that suits you the best.

Tip #7. Taking acidophilus: Study shows that acidophilus will help soothe the blister and accelerate the healing process. You can buy acidophilus capsules in drug store or online. Take four capsules 3 times a day with milk. Using this remedy when you feel pain and itching will prevent your skin from lesion.

In this first post of my blog, I’d love to share cold sore home remedy information to help you treat it effectively.

Cold sore is an annoying skin problem that occurs on your mouth and nose (Both are the most common places). When you are infected by the cold sore virus, you will constantly go through the outbreak. Though the sore will be self-healed in 10-15 days without any medication, not everyone could bear the painful and embarrassing period. Traditional antiviral pills seem not that effective nowadays, while studies have proven that many herbal and natural remedies can do a better job. The advantage also includes simple, homemade and inexpensive. Here are SEVEN of them that I highly recommend you to have a try.

Cold Sore Home Remedy #1 – Petroleum Jelly

You will often feel dry on the infected skin. Dab some petroleum jelly on it will moisturize it and prevent it from painful cracking. You could take a small bottle of petroleum jelly with you when you go outside so that you can apply it frequently.

Cold Sore Home Remedy #2 – Lysine

Lysine and arginine are competing amino acids in the virus. Shortly speaking, Lysine stops the growth of the virus and arginine boosts the process. So you must need more lysine than arginine in your body. Already know what to do, right? Yes! Just eat more Lysine! You can get it from food like fish, yogurt, vegetable, cheese, etc. Meanwhile, you must avoid arginine rich food like nuts, chocolates, gelatin, oats, etc. Also, there are many lysine supplements available in drug store or online for you to choose.

Cold Sore Home Remedy #3 – Aloe Vera

Aloe Vera is such an amazing plant that can be used to heal many kinds of wound. It’s also a wonderful cold sore home remedy. Easily break off the Aloe Vera leaf and you will get the juice. Collect it in a vessel. Gently apply the juice on the sore 2-3 times a day. It will help you relieve the pain and accelerate healing.

Cold Sore Home Remedy #4 – Ice

Ice can be used at the early stage of cold sore when you feel tingling or itching around your mouth without any visible sign. Wrap a few ice cubes in a thin towel. Put the towel on the skin where you feel tingling or itching. Ice will kill the virus and stop the sore coming out of your skin. But you need to be careful because the cold may frostbite your skin if you hold it on too long.

Cold Sore Home Remedy #5 – Echinacea

A herbal medicine called echinacea can also heal the cold sore outbreak fast. It could help your body form interferon which blocks the replication of the virus. Use it to prepare an extract. Soak a cotton ball in the extract and apply it on the sore 3-4 times per day.

Cold Sore Home Remedy #6 – Garlic Oil

Garlic oil is an important ingredient in garlic. It shows a very strong anti-virus function. Crush the fresh garlic then you get the juice that contains garlic oil. You’d better apply it when the scab forms after the ulcer. Painful cracking often follow during this stage. Garlic oil softens the scab so that the cracking process is not that painful. Also, rub a clove on the sore can be effective as well. But you should never overuse the garlic because of skin irritation.

Cold Sore Home Remedy #7 – Tea Tree Oil

Many researches have proven that tea tree oil also has antiviral function against cold sore. Use a cotton ball to swab the oil on the sore for 3-4 times a day. Dilute the oil in water before applying if your skin is sensitive. Tea tree oil is available at local stores, you can buy it online too.

Though above cold sore home remedy is very powerful and effective to treat the outbreak, it’s still hard to remove the HSV-1 out of your body. So is there any way to stop the cold sore from keeping bothering you again and again in the future? Sure!
