Eliminate Cold Sore

> Cold sores are always very uncomfortable and difficult to combat, need to see the causes and natural remedies to apply before the first symptoms. It is appropriate for cold sores, a diet deficient in arginine and takes a natural remedy.

Definition of Cold Sores:
Herpes labialis is an infection caused by a simple virus, type 1, which generally comes out mainly on the lips but can also go in the nose and even inside the mouth.

Symptoms and causes cold sores:
Initial symptoms range from tingling, itching or burning in the area. Symptoms usually appear 7 to 15 days after exposure or usually very common through a kiss then leave a vesiculitas or blisters, grouped, especially the first time they are very uncomfortable and may even cause fever. After a week begin to dry and form a crust that ends up falling while normally scar. Often become "dormant" and not give trouble even for years but suddenly can "activate" at times of high stress, trenches defenses (after a hectic process), or having much cold or too many hours in the sun.

Nutrition trend where Cold Sores:
For many years we have been studying the relationship of this virus with the amino acids lysine and arginine. It has been shown that foods rich in arginine (almonds, Brazil nuts, cashews, peanut, nuts, coconut, sesame, hazelnut, wheat germ, chocolate and gelatin) promote growth or recurrence of the virus in some people (luckily not happen to most people) if having a cold sore can try to eliminate those foods if only momentarily.
Instead Lysine rich foods favor our cells more resistant to virus attack. Lysine-rich foods are mainly yeast, seaweed, soy, potatoes, eggs, fish and dairy products (yogurt, cheese, milk and kefir)

Some doctors recommend taking when we noticed the first symptoms or if it "came out" cold sores, 1 to 3 grams of Lysine a day. When the discomfort is taken away only half a gram (500 mg.) A day while the doctor sees fit. Lysine is sold in pharmacies and herbalists but as always will be our doctor or specialist who will tell if we need it, what dose and for how long.

Other cold sore remedies:
Externally we have several possibilities. All can soothe and everything depends on us to have more on hand:
* Apply a few drops of tea tree oil twice a day. It can also run the natural essence of lavender.
* Spread the pulp with cold sores (usually irritate skin) Aloe Vera (Aloe), several times a day.
