12 Gramma’s Natural Home Remedies for Fever Blisters

12 Natural Home Remedies for Fever Blisters

Fever blisters or what some may call them, cold sores are painful and ugly looking. We try to cover them with make up or just don’t get our pictures taken until they are healed. 12 Natural Home Remedies for Fever Blisters can be effective.

Natural Home Remedies for a fever blister-lip


What are fever blisters or cold sores?  They’re small,  fluid-filled blisters that can be painful.  They can erupt on the lips, gums, nose, or roof of the mouth. You may experience pain, tingling, or itching one or two days prior to the appearance of the fever blister. They’re caused by the herpes simplex virus and are contagious.  The life cycle of a fever blister is seven to ten days. It’s a virus that lies dormant in your body and there are some common triggers that trigger the appearance of that nasty blister. They are, exposure to the sun, fever, a cold, and stress especially, in women during menstruation.

What Would Gramma Do?

  1. Rub ice on the blister for 10 minutes every hour at first site of the fever blister. It should halt the virus from going to the skin.
  2. Lemon balm has antiviral properties. It should lessen the symptoms and speeds up the healing process.
  3. Lysine has been found to inhibit the spread of the herpes simplex virus. Lysine supplements may help to shorten the time of the cold sore. Recommended dose that I found is to take 1,000 mg three times a day. Lysine is an essential amino acid that we can get through food or supplements.
  4. First signs of a fever blister, apply juice of Aloe Vera plant. It will start the healing process and not allow the blister to grow.
  5. Peppermint oil applied should speed up the healing process.
  6. Grapefruit seed extract – mix 1 or 2 drops with aloe and apply it to the blister.
  7. Black tea-steep a tea bag as you would normally,  make a cup of tea and apply the bag to the sore.  The blister should be gone in a few days.
  8. Rhubarb and sage cream – It can be as effective as topical aciclovir cream. But the combination is what makes this remedy effective.
  9. Table salt-put some on your finger that is moistened and press it on the sore for a couple of minutes twice a day for 2-3 days.
  10. Vick Vapo Rub-dab it onto the cold sore area at first sign of tingling and until it’s gone. See here for more uses of Vicks Vapo-Rub
  11. Dab a little Baking Soda on it a few times a day.
  12. Change your toothpaste to a toothpaste that doesn’t have Sodium Lauryl Sulfate. You may have to get it online, like Squigle.

  11. Thhis blog was… how do you say it? Relevant!! Finally I’ve
    found slmething that helped me.Kudos!

  12. I have gotten these twice a year since childhood and ive use to use everything noe I only use alcohol on a cotton ball when it starts and it never really comes all the way anymore. I found using creams and sauves oils just make it spread it the lil blisters pop. Alcohol drys it up fast

  13. If it helps my daughter than I want others to know about it too, my daughter is 7 and has had so many over the years her lips are scarred. The best thing I have discovered after trying everything and paying for dieticians advise is simply pressing a dissolvable aspirin (licked for moisture and fizz) to the area when it first tingles and it doesn’t come up, even if it has started I still get her to do it as it more than halves the end result and the healing process is so much quicker. It works by thinning out the blood in that area essentially displacing the virus which is trying to find an exit point. I very rarely get them, however I had one coming on and did the same process and it didn’t surface at all. This is a god send that I accidentally read it one day, haven’t looked back since. Hope this helps many others. x

    • Great information. Thank you for sharing this to help others, Amy.

  14. I drink a quart of buttermilk at the first sign and it is completely gone in 24 hrs.

    • Hope this helps someone. Thank you for sharing.

  15. This is a great article. It has a lot of information about healing blisters, and what is the most important thing these are natural remedies. I’m really impressed with this article and I’ll recommend it to my friends so I can help them. I’d like to share with you also a very informative article about healing blisters in which you can find herbal remedies which are really effective too:

  16. I had a blister on my lip that just started and this is what i did.
    I was at a hospital with my daughter and while waiting. I cleaned my hands with sanatizer. My lips were so dry and i could feel my blister burning. I grabbed a tissure added some sanatizer and dabbed it on the blister a few times. I could feel my lip dry but it felt better. It did burn a little. I repeated this a few times while there. By the time i left the hospital with my daughter my blister had dried up. That night it had a scab. The next day i added a little moisteriser to my lips. The scab was falling off. I then added some more tissue with sanatizer to dry it out again. Looks like my blister is almost gone. :) first time this has ever dissapeard this quick. Also sanatize hands before touching and after really helps.

  17. I used the ice cube treatment and the tea bag treatment. I also did my best to take lots of vitamin C. The blisters has gone in 2 days.

    • Great news! Thanks for sharing your testimony.
