Rub your cold sore with a gold ring

I rub my gold ring on the sore for a few minutes every hour for the 1st day and it goes away. I've been doing this for a few years and it works all the time. The object has to be gold in order for it to work.

A ring worn on your finger carries so many germs why in the world would you rub all the germs from the day on to your lips I would think it would make it worse not better

This is all the power of suggestion, there's no way this can physically work. A completely psychological thing.

I've never tried this, but word of advice; be careful to thoroughly cleanse the item of jewellery because though cold-sores are herpes simplex 1, with contact they can be transferred to your downstairs.
