Cold sore is a viral disease that can affect anyone, and it is characterized by small vesicles which explode before forming a scab. This disease is generally formed around the lips (herpes labialis) or at the private parts (genital herpes).
People who have already been infected with this virus must expect relapses because it lives in the body and it is activated depending on several factors. Herpes can be triggered by stress, anxiety, fatigue, menstruation, fever or poor diet.
To prevent this disease, you must first strengthen the immune system and promote a diet rich in fruits and vegetables to refuel the body with energy and minerals.
But, there is a natural and simple trick that will allow you to get rid of cold sores: garlic. Take a clove of garlic and chop it finely, place it on the cold sore. Let it stand for 10 minutes, and then rinse with warm water. In a 12 hour period, the cold sore will disappear.
Garlic is known for its antiseptic, antiviral and antimicrobial properties. It is therefore very effective in treating certain infections. Its richness in antioxidants destroy the free radicals that attack the healthy cells of the body. Garlic is also rich in calcium, phosphorus, iron. It contains allicin, the molecule responsible for its odor, which protects the body against harmful agents and infections.
