    Cold sore will come back when your immune system is surpassed. This means that you want to make sure you have high thyroid function. If you have high thyroid function then you will increase the strength of your immune system. Eating more often as will as light therapy can help. Even someone as simple as going to bed early can really help someone.

    Interesting. I’ve been lucky that I’ve managed to avoid cold sores. Can’t say I’ve ever had one…mostly because my mum was a nurse and so we were never allowed to share lip balm, etc etc etc and were very careful about not sharing anything with friends who had them and I”m glad, because once you’ve got them, they keep popping up. The sugar connection is fascinating. A friend of mine is inundated with them, especially under times of stress – I will pass this on.

    More confirmation of my hypothesis that refined sugar is a white powder like cocaine or heroin for a reason.

    Excellent advice! My husband gets them occasionally, especially when he’s super stressed out. The last time he used licorice extract, which helped a lot. I just relayed the toothpaste tip to him. Thanks!

    My Mom and sister had them their whole lives – both crappy eaters. I stayed away when the had them and neither me nor anyone in my family has gotten them. The sugar is interesting. I am the same way with salt now two years later. Canned, boxed and frozen food is so gross – and potato chips are OFF the hook salty. YICK.

    Now. I have my new car. When do I get my first invite? I promise not to bring sweets. Okay, not that many sweets. heehee LOVE YOU!

    I’ve noticed that if I’m starting to get sick and eat or drink really acidic foods or drinks, like anything citrus, I often get a canker sore. I rarely drink orange juice anymore when I’m sick, and instead drink cranberry juice which has more vitamin C anyways.

    I’ve used crushed vitamin C for years now. It can be painful but after two out breaks and devoted use I did not have a event for almost 15 years. And my close family never contracted. The key is to treat before the blister comes out. I’ll put tooth paste in my bag today.

    Knowing at what stage of the cold sore you are at is always helpful to design an approach to tackle it. You don’t want to trying to pop a cold sore that does not need popping, and milk isn’t going to have any effect on a blister.

    I don’t know about toothpaste, but I do know that supercharging the innate immune system can help prevent outbreaks.

      Toothpaste definitely works to manage an outbreak that’s already occurred, but I do agree with you that keeping up the immune system is the best defense for prevention of an outbreak. Thanks for stopping by!

    You got it , sugar is the trigger for me , I realized that every time I had coffee w/ sugar i was getting indigestion , not long after I would have the out breaks . First I thought it was the coffee since I drink it all the time but than I realized I would get indigestion every time I ate something sweet , so than I stopped the sugar intake and what do you know no more cold soars . I’m glad to see that u was right about the sugar
