You know that horrible feeling- the tingling itching feeling you get at the onset of a cold sore breakout. Sometimes there isn’t physical discomfort, merely a small hard bump around the lips. Before you know it, tiny blisters or oozing sores erupt into a crust on your mouth. By the time you realize what’s going on, you’re experiencing a full-blown cold sore outbreak. The thing is, it isn’t just your mouth that is affected, cold sores significantly increase your emotional stress. The irony is that STRESS can make your outbreak even WORSE!
So how do you break the cold sore cycle and avoid outbreaks? Well, first we need to examine the most common triggers of cold sore outbreaks.
Living in a pandemic is sure to heighten anyone’s stress levels, particularly those whose bodies react to an increase in stress. It’s a Catch-22. You’re already filled with angst, but you KNOW you need to calm down or you’ll have another cold sore breakout.
Minimizing stress isn’t something that can be achieved overnight, or can it? As it turns out, sleep is a factor in your outbreaks, but that’s not the only stress reducer. Experts suggest keeping all types of stress in check through healthy lifestyle choices: adequate sleep (at least 8 hours nightly), a healthy diet, and at least 30 minutes of daily exercise.
Too Much Sun and Wind Exposure
We’re not going to lie, there’s nothing better than enjoying a beautiful, bright sunny day. Exposure to the sun in moderation is healthy for the skin and immune system. This is because of the vitamin D production associated with sun exposure. However, too much UV radiation triggers cold sore outbreaks. The excessive ultraviolet radiation from the sun, particularly when paired with lots of wind can be a recipe for disaster for cold sore sufferers.
Remember what mom always used to say? Use a sun blocker. Applying a zinc oxide cream or balm on your lips to keep them well moisturized helps minimize UV sun exposure.
Over Consumption of Alcohol and Drugs
Here’s the reality: alcohol, in all forms, can make cold sores worse. The more that you drink, the more your body will be compromised. Various alcohols and stimulant drugs make you more vulnerable to the factors that cause a cold sore flare-up. Because the body requires a healthy immune system to fight off cold sores, any compromise of that immunity is problematic.
Abreva, Blistex, Carmex, or campho phenique are all over-the-counter remedies. However, none of these OTC drugs are capable of stopping an outbreak before it starts. Not to mention, these remedies are filled with chemicals and laboratory-produced ingredients! Who knows what n-docosanol is? If you’re using Abreva, you should. This saturated 22-carbon aliphatic alcohol was created in a lab and combined with other inactive chemicals and fillers to make Abreva! Now that’s scary!
