Apply this concoction of coconut oil to cold sores and feel better fast. I know it is just anecdotal evidence that it works but with so many of my friends swearing by it I thought I would give it a go. So far so good. No clue why this works, would be great if an expert here or someone with more experience can explain in the comments!

What You'll Need

  • Pure virgin coconut oil
  • 1000mg lysine

What You'll Do

  • Take one dose of both daily to prevent cold sores. If you have a cold sore increase dosage to 3 times daily.
  • As soon as you feel the cold sore coming, dab a small amount of coconut oil to the place where you feel the blister forming.
  • You can also take it orally and have a spoonful of coconut oil every day to help your body.
