How To: Prevent cold sores

Prevent cold sores

Cold sores are highly contagious. Follow these simple steps to prevent them.
You Will Need
* Antibacterial soap
* Lip balm
* Daily exercise
* A healthy diet

Step 1: Wash hands
Wash your hands frequently with antibacterial soap.

Step 2: Avoid cold sores
Stay away from anyone who has a cold sore. Avoid kissing or skin contact.

Step 3: Avoid sharing personal items
Avoid sharing personal items – drinking cups, utensils, razors, and towels can spread the virus.

Step 4: Apply lip balm
Apply lip balm with sunscreen. Overexposure to the sun can cause dry lips, making your body prone to the virus.

Use at least an SPF 15 lip balm.

Step 5: Exercise and eat a healthy diet
Exercise daily and eat well to keep your immune system strong. The stronger your immune system, the better your body will defend against the virus.

Fact: By age 50, 80 to 90 percent of people will have the herpes virus that causes cold sores.

I WANT TO USE THIS OPPORTUNITY TO SAY A VERY BIG THANK YOU TO Dr Ogberaese, My name is Leonard Shirin i am so happy to share this testimony on how Dr.Ogberaese healed me from genital herpes. i was detected with genital herpes around 10th may 2019, and ever since that day i have been looking for a way to end this virus from my body, but the more i try, the more i was told there was no solution. Few months ago i saw a testimony of some people on how Dr Ogberaese cure them from HERPES VIRUS, i also heard about it on media when a young lady also gave her testimony saying Dr Ogberaese cured her oral herpes. I was left with no other hope than to contact Dr Ogberaese and give him a try. I contacted him and told him what i was going through. He said he could heal me, that he is going to send me a herbal medicine and He sent the medicine as he promised. I took this herbal medicine for 1 week and it was obvious that his medicine was for real, because the herpes started clearing from my body. Later at the 2 week, i went for medical check up and i was surprised when my doctor told me he found no trace of the virus in me again. At first when he told me, i was so shock and still did not believed until he gave me my test result. to make my story short i am now free from herpes, after many months of sorrow and my sickness is gone, i thank God for leading me to this man, and i want to also lead you to him if you have any illness like HIV, HPV, hepatitis B, asthma, cancer, Diabetes, COLD SCORE,TOOTH ACHE FIBROID and AUTISM. You can email him on drogberaese54@gmail.com or whats-app him on +2348073818653. visit him on his website: dr-ogberaese-herbal-home.jimdosite.com
