Coconut Oil is Best Treatment for Herpes (Cold Sores)

by Liz (Rhode Island)

I have been using virgin coconut oil for 5 years now to treat my herpes (cold sores) outbreaks. If I eat it regularly (at least 1 tablespoon per day), I do not get cold sores anymore (at all). If I stop taking it for several weeks, I get an occasional cold sore, which goes away in 2-3 days max because I re-start taking the coconut oil immediately, as well as applying it on my cold sore. I do not know what research that doctor did, but this oil (I used Tropical Traditions Coconut Oil) really cures my herpes.

I used to get several cold sores a year, sometimes one every other month, but now I only had maybe 2 – 3 during the last 5 years because of taking coconut oil. I would not have had any, if I did not stop taking it from time to time. The only issue is that I have to take it regularly every day, and sometimes I have a hard time eating it especially in solid form. I basically take the whole tablespoon by mouth (just like a supplement)because I do not really like it in cooking, with few exceptions (I love it on baked sweet potatoes, but not in other foods). I urge anyone getting cold sores to try it.



Cold Sore gone in 1 day! by: Marjorie

I just started investigating coconut oil after I read a recommendation for it on a raw food blog. I started feeling a cold sore come on and put it on topically and added 2 tbs to my smoothie that day. I kid you not, the cold sore is gone! I have had cold sores for my entire adult life and in the last year would get them at least once a month! I am hopeful that continuing to take coconut oil will be a natural remedy to go along with all the other benefits! Honestly, it’s gone and it’s been 24 hours! I applied the oil topically a few times yesterday afternoon, once before bed and again this morning. Good luck to everyone else, I think this is the answer!



Cold sores and Coconut Oil by: rthomas

I just wanted to let you know that after reading this and talking to my Nutritionist I went out and purchased some virgin coconut oil. I have had the worst outbreak ever this year since middle-March – my lips look I had silicone injections done with a a chemical peel; very tender. The coconut oil is the first thing I’ve used that doesn’t burn them. My Nutritionist recommends adding a little peppermint oil to it topically. It may burn a little but no where near as much as that alcohol crap they have out that is for cold sores; also, tea tree oil helps topically!
