Garlic cloves for cold sores

Try rubbing garlic on your cold sore. Cut a clove in half and rub it on at night time, or day time but you might be smelly. It speeds up the healing and its not painful like bleach or salt. I get cold sores on the inside of my nose so you can imagine how pleasent this remedy is.

Trying Comments By: Sisi on 2011-02-24
I am now trying this for the first time, it stings a little but I'm sure it will work. It works for bee and/or wasp stings too.
