When I got out of bed this morning I was struck by that nasty tingling sensation you receive whenever a cold sore is going to breakout Those that don't experience cold sores sure enough have no clue what we endure, specifically us who have them very frequently. For a long time now I've done my absolute best to prevent cold sores from breaking out and for many years I've never been able to find the source driving the outbreaks. For me personally the most detrimental thing is the commercials, supposedly if I use ointment X after I get that tingly sensation it'll stop the cold sore from appearing! I ought to be capable of getting a full refund for every single time these products don't work!
It's the nastiest feeling in the world when you know an episode is imminent and you could do nothing to stop it spreading across your mouth! I know my entire life is basically on hold for 2 weeks as the cold sore determines the things I do. My social life ceases to exist and I try to remain in my home just as much as I can throughout the 2 weeks that it is visible! If you search online then every different source of information and facts states something different when attempting to cope with cold sores. Do you dry it, soak it, leave it alone, pick at it, no matter where you search the recommendations differs!
Recently I happen to be trying my fair share of home remedies, many of them appear to have no medical evidence behind them at all but I decided it would be worthy of a try! Last time I'd an episode I had been told to test ice on it which I did, I must be honest I saw no gain from it, the sore was still enormous! During the last year I've also tried various other ointments and random lotions. I decided these were the less preposterous ones coupled with the most medical proof behind them assisting but even so, they didn't help in any way. To date none have really appeared to do the job!
I have decided that I won't wait for a cold sore next time, as an alternative I'll take preventative steps. I suppose that taking preventive measures as opposed to action following the event would work better for me personally as action after the tingle hasn't assisted whatsoever. I have set my own self 90-day challenge to stick to a strict dieting and exercise plan and see if the outbreaks of cold sores are decreased in any way. I do not expect a cure for cold sores in the near future and so this is really the only option left available to me right now.
While we all wait for a cure I will continue my quest of stopping cold sores from appearing, beginning with this 90-day challenge tomorrow morning. I'll do my best to up-date you with any news concerning the challenge and whether or not I saw any advantages from it.
