Cold Sore Cure?
Who can you believe these days?
Some medical authorities claim there is no such thing as a cold sore cure. Other, just as credible experts, claim cold sore cures are very real today. Who is telling the truth?
Believe it or not, THEY ARE BOTH CORRECT. The confusion lies in the fact they are talking about two different things.
When my friends at Mayo state there is no cure for cold sores, they are talking about the root cause of cold sores - the herpes simplex type 1 virus that has invaded the body. They are stating, quite truthfully, there is currently no way to remove this cold sore causing herpes virus once you are infected.
The herpes virus, when not replicating - causing cold sores - hides extremely well. This tiny, living particle will hibernate inside the nerve cells deep below the surface. When dormant, this virus completely shuts down - giving off no signs of life - therefore impossible to find and destroy.
If and when scientists find a way to remove this virus from our bodies, it probably will have little impact. The virus is so contagious, and nearly every person is infected with it. Quite likely we would be re-infected in a short time.
BUT, THOSE WHO STATE A COLD SORE CURE EXISTS ARE CORRECT TOO.
You see - doctors have always claimed a cure when they eliminate the symptoms of a disease. For example, in many cases, a type 2 diabetic, by eating right and taking the right herbs and vitamins, can eliminate the outward symptoms of diabetes (like I did). As long as no symptoms exist, the diabetic is considered cured.
All diseases are based on the manifestation of the symptoms of that disease. No symptoms mean no disease. The same is true with cold sores. There are many symptoms with cold sores, but the main symptom is the actual sore on your face.
The reality of it is this - if you can eliminate and prevent these cold sores from appearing, you have a true cold sore cure. You will always have the virus, but it never has to become active.
In trying to find a cold sore cure, we should not be looking to remove the virus from the body. This is a futile task. We should, instead, be focusing on eliminating the cold sore symptoms and preventing future cold sores.
Fortunately, even though nearly everyone carries the virus that causes cold sores, 43% will never get a cold sore in their life. Some folks just seem to have a built-in cold sore cure. The rest of us have to find remedies and treatments that will cure our cold sores.
There are a variety of excellent cold sore treatment remedies you can use today. Some work as comfort treatments, and a few actually heal and prevent cold sores. (Most drug store treatments are basically for comfort.) Since each of us is different, what works for another person may not work for you - so do not be disappointed too quickly.
If you are bothered with cold sores, there is a cold sore cure for you. That is the truth. It may be as simple as applying ice at first sign, or taking a vitamin supplement every day. You will have to try different cold sore remedies, and maybe combine them, to find or create the perfect cold sore cure for yourself.
