Cold sore, anyone? Yuck!
I really am not comfortable talking about my cold sore caused by the herpes simplex virus (HSV), but if this information can help someone else as it has me, I want to share. You can successfully treat and heal a herpes cold sore with oil of oregano – a very simple process – if you jump on it immediately in the earliest stages.
This cold sore came a day after I laid out in the sun. I knew it would be red, ugly, painful, and alternately seepy and scabbing for 12 -14 days (which is my normal). With so many things on the calendar, I’m always embarrassed to have to wear a big ol’ cold sore with no way to hide.
