Cold sores

The term “cold sore” describes a group of blisters that form around the mouth and inside the nose, usually toward the end of a cold—thus their name. The sores can be irritating, unsightly, and very uncomfortable, but they are not dangerous. They are produced by a virus called herpes simplex. Most people have been exposed to the virus by the time they are five years old and build up a natural immunity so that they never produce cold sores.

The herpes simplex virus is related to the herpes virus that attacks the genital area. The latter is a sexually transmitted disease, and immunity to the cold sore virus does not mean that one is immune to genital herpes.

Dangers of cold sores

There is little danger that the skin tissue will scar, except in severe cases. However, it is important to touch the sores as little as possible, as touching may cause them to spread. The protective crust should never be scratched or picked before the sore is fully healed and dried out. If it comes off, the sore could become re infected, and the healing process would be prolonged unnecessarily.

Homeopathic treatment of cold sores – Homeopathy is one of the most popular holistic systems of medicine. The selection of remedy is based upon the theory of individualization and symptoms similarity by using holistic approach. This is the only way through which a state of complete health can be regained by removing all the sign and symptoms from which the patient is suffering. The aim of homeopathy is not only to treat cold sores but to address its underlying cause and individual susceptibility. As far as therapeutic medication is concerned, several remedies are available to cure cold sores that can be selected on the basis of cause, sensations and modalities of the complaints.  For individualized remedy selection and treatment, the patient should consult a qualified homeopathic doctor in person.
