Cold sores can be a source of great misery. They are both painful and embarrassing. The winter months can leave you a bit run down and this may cause you to be more vulnerable to these little patches of unpleasantness. Bio-Propolis ointment can help to soothe your cold sores - even if they have already erupted. The great benefit is that if you miss the tingle stage, it will still work. When the herpes virus first enters the body, it sits and waits in the body tissues in a dormant state. During this stage, there is no sign of disease. When the virus is triggered, it travels to the nerve endings in the skin and starts to replicate. This is when blisters occur - rapidly and sometimes without warning. If you are prone to cold sores, avoid chocolate and nuts.Take regular doses of L-lysine (available from healthstores) and Vitamin C. This will starve the virus that causes the cold sore.
