As soon as I feel or see a cold sore developing, I put some aloe vera toothpaste on, (the kind you can buy in any healthfood shop), and leave it on overnight. It's normally gone by morning. This also helps with other sores and blemishes. It helps to dry them up and, although tingly at first, feels very healing.

Apply ice and aloe vera. Keep the skin cool as soon as tingling starts. Works like a charm.

I used aloe vera for my cold sore once before and the swelling was gone and my sore was completely gone in 3 days.

Aloe Vera is a great natural remedy to try during an outbreak. While I couldn't find much research on the effects of taking Aloe supplements, they do supress other types of viruses and might be useful for herpes. Aloe gels and creams can heal sores quickly (a few days) and prevent infection. Studies have shown that compounds in Aloe disable the functioning of both type 1 and 2 and strengthen the body's immune response.

I have been drinking Aloe Vera Juice daily, 4oz in the morning and 4oz in the evening, for several months now as a relief from Herpes symptoms. It truly seems to be working. I found this "cure" from a website that talking about ancient Egyptians that used aloe juice for vaginal lesions and decided to try it. The brand I found doesn't taste bad at all, and it really, really seems to help. It's truly a tough disease to deal with, but I would recommend the Aloe Vera Juice to anyone, it can't hurt.
