Yes I just tried Bentonite Clay on my cold sore and it relieves the pain and swelling..but found putting it on dry..considering it is wet it dried it faster...I was hoping it would have healed it faster .. I put it on a cut cuz I have eczema and over night it was totally closed up...I have been telling people about it..never hurts to have options in an emergency..
1 more thing I couldn't find any info on putting it on cold sores...I was just informed when I got mine from the healthfood store that they have a lemon balm lip balm and it did work in taking the swelling down.
A buddy of mine turned me on to calcium bentonite clay for my overall health. the stuff is amazing. you can bathe in it, cook with it, eat it, brush with it, clean your hair with it. its mainly used in spas and things of that nature. anyways, I got the worst cold sore I've ever had. the entire left side of my upper lip, a little one on my nose, and a little one on my bottom lip. I've been reading this website and I remembered the clay I had. I added some water and made a paste out of it and I smeared it on the sores and went to bed. I woke up the next day and the pain was gone and the swelling had dropped tremendously. I washed it off and saw that the sore had diminished in size considerably. it feels really good on the sore and it really cleans up the sore. I use this overnight and it really helps. using it with other remedies, I find the sore heals much quicker. plus it feels GREAT
