Cold sores are small, fluid filled blisters that develop around the mouth. They are due to an infection by the Herpes Simplex Virus and can be difficult to get rid of completely as the virus remains dormant in the skin. Common causes of cold sores are dental treatment, sunburn, and physical or emotional stress.
Cold sores have been treated by homeopathy.
Cold sores require detailed specific prescribing of the "right" homeopathic remedy.
Trial and error or shotgun prescribing does not work, and therefore we don't recommend self-medication. In fact, self-medication will complicate the overall symptom picture.
Below are only some of the remedies we may prescribe, please note how important the individual symptom picture is. Only when all symptoms, aggravation or amelioration are taken into consideration can a specific homeopathic remedy be selected.
A further consideration is given to the potency of the remedy.
