Natural Cures and Remedies for Cold Sores
A cold sore is a viral infection which often goes with a cold or flu. It is said that once you have it, it will keep recurring, because the virus that is causing it persists in the nerve cells. However, repeated treatment with calendula seems to diminish the frequency of eruptions. The ointment must be of the highest quality (see Chapter 26 for making your own).
