Cold Sore Home Remedies - The Ultimate Guide

One of the most unwelcome nemeses for many people is cold sores. Not only are they unflattering and downright awful to sport around on your face, they also hurt quite a bit. Let’s not forget the unappealing fact that cold sores also happen to be caused by the herpes virus….uhhh yeah, lovely right?

A cold sore is an inflamed blister in or near the mouth, caused by infection with the herpes simplex virus. The most common form is caused by herpes simplex type 1 or HSV-1.
