Cold sores can quickly take over your life. When you have an outbreak you are self-conscious and feel like everyone is staring at you, thinking bad things about you, or avoiding you entirely. When you don't have an active cold sore you are constantly looking for signs of the next outbreak to come, paranoid that the biggest events in your life will be ruined by untimely outbreaks. You have likely tried about every cold sore treatment you can find, with little to no results. So, what are you supposed to do to improve the quality of your life? Is there a way to effectively prevent cold sores? There is a way to control outbreaks and really prevent cold sores from coming back over and over again, but first you need a basic understanding of what this virus is. Causes of an Outbreak Herpes Simplex Virus is the ultimate cause of sores developing anywhere on the body. There are different types of the virus, with type 1 being the cause of sores that develop around the mouth and possibly other areas of the face. Type 2 is more likely to create sores on the genitals and is the strain commonly known as a sexually transmitted disease. Type 1 is not a sexually transmitted disease in most cases. You can pick up the virus from someone else that has an active sore and it doesn't even take direct skin-to-skin contact! If you share a towel with someone who wipes it across an active lesion you could get the virus yourself. You can even get Herpes Simplex 1 by sharing a fork with someone who has a cold sore. The best way to prevent cold sores is to avoid getting them in the first place. This is why so many people will not share forks and spoons or anything else with someone who has an active outbreak. It is a painful feeling of exclusion for the person with the sores, but it is absolutely necessary to avoid the spread of the virus. Once you have the virus, there can be a variety of triggers that bring on an actual outbreak. The good news is you can learn those triggers and prevent future outbreaks! Cold Sore Treatment Options You have probably been told by at least one doctor that there is no way to completely prevent cold sores from developing. They have probably written a variety of prescriptions and sent you right back out the door, but what if there really was a way to cure this virus so you never had to worry about future outbreaks? The secrets lie in nature. When you stop applying creams and forcing down pills with who knows what in them, you can start to learn all of your triggers and design effective, all natural means of preventing them from being set off. That is the best cold sore treatment you will ever find, since it allows you complete freedom from active sores just by making some reasonable changes to your lifestyle. For instance, you could be depriving your body of key nutrients, vitamins, or minerals that it needs to fight off the virus. This can easily be fixed with nutritional corrections and a couple supplements! Yes, it can be that simple to find a cold sore treatment that finally prevents future outbreaks!
