Effective Remedies against Fever Blisters

During a cold sore outbreak, one thing that you have to bear in mind is the fact that the disappearance of the sores or blisters does not signify that the infection is already cured. Although the sores disappear after several weeks, the virus stays within the body in dormant state. One important thing you need to remind yourself with regards to herpes simplex virus is that once it gets inside the body, it will never leave. It will stay inside the body inactively until it is triggered by certain physical, mental and environmental factors and these results to the manifestation of the symptoms of fever blisters or cold sores.

Transmission of Fever Blisters

As mentioned, HSV or herpes simplex virus is the main culprit for the condition. Although the virus remains dormant inside the body, there are occasions when transmission is at higher risk. Herpes simplex virus can trick the body’s immune system by making it believe that the virus does not exist inside the body. While the virus is in its dormant state, the immune system cannot detect it that is why no medications can be administered to alert the immune system that the virus is present in the body. Transmission of the virus may occur through the following:

* Kissing

* Eating on the same plate or using the same utensils

* Sharing the same drinking glass

* Sharing lipstick or cigarette

* Sexual intercourse

* Touching the blisters and then touching another person using the same hand without disinfecting or washing it can transmit the herpes simplex virus.

* A pregnant woman affected by the condition can pass it onto the fetus inside her womb.

* Individuals who are experiencing the condition can transmit the virus although it is asymptomatic. Although the individual never experienced any outbreak in the past, this does not mean that the virus is less contagious and that it cannot be transmitted to other people.

The treatment for fever blisters are cannot cure the condition, but it can provide relief against the symptoms of the infection. These treatments may include the use of topical solutions, such as behenyl alcohol. Zinc sulfate and zinc oxide ointments or creams can also be applied along with these solutions to speed up the healing process of the condition. Medications can also be administered, such as penciclovir and acyclovir.

Aside from these, there are home remedies available for the condition as well. Applying ice into the affected area can help numb the pain and reduce the swelling or inflammation. Tea tree bag is another helpful remedy against fever blisters. Simply place the bag into the affected area and it will help treat the sores and shorten the duration of the outbreak. Another effective remedy is the application of tea tree oil. This will help alleviate the outbreak and prevent it from spreading.

Aside from these effective cold sore home remedies and medications, lifestyle and dietary changes are necessary as well. For one, it is important that you avoid consuming foods containing high amount of arginine and acid, as these can promote viral growth and aggravate the condition. In case you are experiencing severe symptoms of the condition, it would be best to consult your physician immediately for proper diagnosis and administration of the most suitable treatment solution for the condition.

Considering that the real cause of fever blisters or cold sores have no specific cure, be sure you get to know the available treatment plans for you. Take note that there are readily available treatments that can help you cope with cold sore on lip or cold sore disorders in various parts of the body.
