No. 1 cure for cold sores: garlic
For this natural trick, you just have to have a clove of garlic that you cut in half. Using one of the two halves, gently rub your herpes button for one or two minutes.

Soak a cotton swab with an essential oil, either tea tree or niaouli (native to New Caledonia, rich in active principles and trace elements), and tap your lip at the location of the cold sore.
Feel free to repeat this action three or four times during the day and start over the next day.
Remedy No. 3 anti Fever button: lemon juice
Gently press a cotton swab soaked with lemon juice on your fever button for several minutes. Do not exceed three applications a day because lemon juice is particularly acidic!
