Without a doubt, an ointments for cold sores is necessary if by chance you have an outbreak. If you have had before, you can recognize herpes at the first symptoms: tingling, burning, itching and the scary blisters on the lips. In these cases, it is best to act immediately and place frozen packs to retract the virus, which is not very friendly with cold and instead in exchange for heat and humidity. We give you super interesting facts below so that you can make a cream to fight herpes yourself.
Ointments for Cold Sores with Natural Products:
One of the main recommendations is to keep the blisters as clean and dry as possible, so that the infection does not progress more than is due. Do not break your skin or tear it off once it dries. Also, do not touch the sores and then run your fingers through your eyes or another part of the body because the infection could affect those other sites. The base we will use to make these ointments, unless otherwise stated, will be petrolatum, which are an excellent emulsifier and a magnificent moisturizing element.
1. Lemon Balm Ointment:
This balm is especially recommended to make creams and ointments for herpes, for its antiviral and disinfectant action. It helps the skin heal faster, while maintaining softness. You can buy it in health food stores and combine it with petroleum jelly. Or you can make a well concentrated infusion in ½ cup of water, let it boil for 5 minutes, until it evaporates in half, and then mix it with drops with petroleum jelly.
2. Garlic Ointment:
Yes, we know that this remedy is a bit excessive because of the tremendous smell it gives off, but with it you can make an excellent ointment for cold sores. You have to crush a clove of garlic until it becomes completely pureed (a good way is also to cook it a little in the microwave –20, 25 seconds in a few drops of water) and add petroleum jelly until you achieve the desired consistency. Brush the lips with this preparation at night and in two or three days the infection will have gone down.
“As you know, garlic is a natural antibiotic and antiviral, widely used in herbalism and natural medicine”.
3. Orange Ointment:
What you are going to use from orange is the white skin that is immediately under the peel. It is excellent for drying and healing the vesicles. Although it is not exactly to make an ointment, it is enough that you place a piece of this skin on the affected area and endure as much as you can, with the help of a mortar you can mix with petroleum jelly until it forms a paste. Store in a glass jar and apply this ointment for cold sores two or three times a day.
4. Made with Honey and Apple Cider Vinegar:
Both ingredients are very good for treating skin conditions. Honey is antibacterial and healing, and vinegar disinfects blisters. Because of its vitamin A content and mineral salts, vinegar is beneficial for the skin, soothes itching and repairs the wounds of the blisters. You just have to mix ½ teaspoon of vinegar and a few drops of honey, stir well and apply it to the lips with the help of a cotton swab. You can store in a glass jar in the fridge.
5. St. Robert’s Wort:
Crush 3 fresh leaves of this medicinal herb (better buy it in specialized stores, so you don’t get confused if you don’t know it well) and mix them with a little petroleum jelly. This herb is perfect for healing sores and ulcers, soothes pain and heals herpes blisters faster. Its toning and astringent effect benefits the skin.
6. Mixture of Jojoba and Other Oils:
The next combination is not exactly an ointment, although its consistency is definitely fat. You are going to mix 30 ml of jojoba oil, 3 drops of tea tree oil, 2 of amaro oil and 4 of myrrh oil in a glass jar, and apply this cold sore ointment in the area with a swab. I remind you that to effectively combat herpes you must keep your immune system in perfect balance. That is why a holistic and holistic approach is necessary to eliminate this virus from your body. I highly recommend the method of the Definitive Protocol of Herpes, by Melanie Addington. Its step-by-step plan will teach you to attack the herpes virus from three different angles, and make sure that it disappears forever from your life. With your recipes and ointments for herpes on the lips, you will restart your defense system; then you will dissolve the protective layer of the virus; and finally you will prevent the virus from replicating.
