Home remedy for Cold Sore

An aphthous ulcer (aka canker sore) is a type of oral ulcer which presents as a painful open sore inside the mouth or upper throat, caused by a break in the mucous membrane. The condition is also known asaphthous stomatitis, and alternatively as "Sutton's Disease," especially in the case of multiple or recurring ulcers.

Foods to Avoid during Cold sore
Avoiding citrus (sour) in the diet (lemons, oranges, acidic drinks, citric foods, and citric candies). Spicy foods should also be reduced.

Foods to consume during Cold sore
Zinc deficiency has been reported in people with recurrent mouth ulcers. The few small studies looking into the role of zinc supplementation have mostly reported positive results particularly for those people with deficiency. Zinc is found in oysters, and to a far lesser degree in most animal proteins, beans, nuts, almonds, whole grains, pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds. Consuming milk is also beneficial. Have more of these foods for quick healing.

Home remedy for Cold sore
Take Coconut oil and honey in equal proportion and mix it together. Apply in on effected area. Repeat after few hours.

Take dry coconut’s small piece and place it like a sweet candy in the mouth near the effected area but don’t chew on it just slowly take the oil from it as you would do with a candy.
