Homeopathic Cold Sore Remedies
Homeopathic cold sore remedies are usually put down by conventional medicine. But I really feel they can be useful to many people. I like homeopathy a lot because it is so safe and it has saved my days quite a few times. There are several great homeopathic medicines that can be bought over the counter or on line. You may not want to use the same homeopathic treatment depending on your gender and what triggers your fever blisters to appear.
A couple of concerns about homeopathy can also be raised. Sometimes when using a homeopathic medicine, the symptoms can seem to get worse before they get better. This has been attributed to the body recreating symptoms in reaction to receiving a treatment containing the elements that cause the illness.
Homeopathic remedies can be used to treat just about any combination of symptoms or injuries. They are also used for over all wellness and prevention. Single medicines contain only one active ingredient and are intended to treat a very specific condition. A series of detailed questions about a person‚Äôs physical, mental, and emotional status is used to identify the best individual remedy.
Often we go to bed with our mind churning over problems that cause us to be alert and jittery preventing a good night's rest. Coffea cruda actually comes from coffee beans but acts in the opposite way to caffeine. It can calm the mental hype we feel and allow our mind to slow its thought process giving us the chance to get some sleep. It's useful for insomnia and you will wake up without feeling fatigued.
Overindulging on alcohol usually leads to a mighty headache and sickness the following day so try Nux vomica. Taken from the poisonous seeds of a tree found in Sri Lanka, India and Northern Australia, the remedy eases nausea and helps with oversensitivity to light and sound. It can also be taken for stomach cramps and constipation.
Best homeopathic cold sore remedies Before fever blisters have appeared:
Natrum muriaticum: to prevent or stop fever blisters at the tingling stage. It is mostly indicated if blisters tend to appear after long sun exposition.
Apis mellifica: Apis is used to prevent blisters from forming. It is not useful once blisters have appeared. It does work. But you may have to use this homeopathic cold sore remedy several times before you see any results.
Rhus toxicodendron: Take rhus toxicondendron every 24 hours in most oral herpes cases.
Lachesis or Sepia: once every 24 hours. These homeopathic cold sore remedies are mostly suitable for women who tend to have fever blisters just before their periods.
Homeopathic remedies are prescribed by symptoms rather than conditions, as each case of a particular illness can manifest differently in different people. However, to make it quicker to find the symptoms related to Cold Sore, the symptoms experienced by a previous vistor to our homeopathic remedy finder have been grouped, by them, under the name of Cold Sore. There may be symptoms not related to Cold Sore, and this may not be an exhaustive list of symptoms.
The most common way to spread an cold sore infection is by saliva. Sharing a glass of water, spit or kissing are the main reasons for infecting another person. But there is still other ways to spread these blisters. If someone touch a sore with their hands, they might get the cold sore blisters on their hands and thus its quite easy spreading it to other parts of your body that you touch afterwards. So hands on a cold sore are a big no-no.
Dealing with cold sores is no walk in the park. The pain and discomfort that they cause is something that is enough to make anyone want to find a way out of the problem for good. Add to that the social issues and embarrassment that typically go along with a disease that causes such noticeable outbreaks and you have a one two punch that puts many of us down for a while.
