Cold Sores

OK, so this is probably not the most exciting of topics to cover – cold sores. Yeah, I get cold sores. If I have a cold or the flu, I can almost be certain that I will have cold sores as well. They seem to come at exactly the same time I get sick. So at this moment I have cold sores again.

The last time I had the flu – which was only about 6 weeks ago – my entire bottom lip was covered in them. Quite a painful experience. On the positive side of things, this time they are on the top lip, for which my lower lip says thanks. I however, am still not impressed by them.


  1. Here is how I stop a cold sore before it breaks out: As soon as you feel the tingling sensation, soak a cotton swab or small piece of cotton with mouthwash containing at least 14% alcohol. Hold it on the spot for five minutes or more to kill the pesky virus before it erupts. If this works for you, please pass it on.

    I also have simple remedies to stop colds and allergies–see for more information.
