Cold and Warm Compresses Remedy

Ice and Warm Compresses


Cold and Warm Compresses – Home remedy for Oral Herpes: Applying ice to the cold sore is an effective remedy for relieving pain. Try rubbing or holding ice on the cold sore for a few minutes, repeating once an hour for a longer lasting effect. You can find similar pain relief by applying a warm compress in the same manner as ice. You could use a warm tea bag instead of a compress, held on for roughly 30 minutes at a time. The use of ice or tea bag compresses during the "tingling" stage of the sore, when it is first developing may be effective in stifling the growth and preventing further development of the sore.

Always seek the advice of your doctor before taking herbal medications
